Retired President Moi is responding well to treatment in Tel Aviv, Israel, his press secretary Lee Njiru has said even as the government cautioned Kenyans against falling prey to fake news.
In a statement, Njiru, one of the longest serving officers within Moi’s circle, said the former Head of State was in “high spirits, hearty and robust” adding that he will be back home soon. Moi, 93, was flown to Israel on Sunday for specialised treatment for what his aides described as a troubling knee.
He is accompanied by his son Gideon, who is also the senator for Baringo and his personal doctor Dr David Silverstein. At the same time, the Foreign Affairs ministry was forced to issue a statement over Moi’s health; “We are forced to clarify that the fake news maliciously circulated by some individuals regarding the well-being of former President Moi is untrue.”
