Former President Mwai Kibaki is reportedly admitted at a city hospital after ailing for some days now.

According to a report by a local publication, Kibaki is admitted at Nairobi Hospital and is under the care of a team of doctors.

The 88-year-old health has been a cause for concern recently after media reports last year indicated that he had been admitted at the same hospital, an allegation that was dismissed by his private secretary Ngari Gituku.

Gituku indicated that the former head of state had just gone for a normal routine check-up.

“At his age and stature, they can check anything (during routine medical trips), including the hair follicle, the prostrate and eyesight,” Gituku said then.

He was first admitted to The Nairobi Hospital on January 20, 2004. His medical team at the time said they found a blood clot in his right leg.

Kibaki lost some of his mobility when he suffered a serious road accident near Machakos in 2002, at the height of the presidential campaigns and was hospitalized in Nairobi and later on, in London.

Earlier this year, Kenya’s third president was captured wearing orthopedic shoes when he visited Parliament buildings to pay his last respects to his late predecessor Daniel arap Moi.
