Former Kenyan President, Daniel Torotich Arap Moi has been admitted at Nairobi hospital for a medical check-up.

Moi’s family says that it is a routine check-up which the country does not have to worry about.

“Nothing much to worry about. He is there for a routine check-up and being attended to by his physician Dr. David Silverstein. He is expected to spend a couple of days to allow the doctors sufficient time to check Mzee,” the source said.

Moi’s secretary was not aware of her boss’s ailment, telling the media that she had to confirm first then get back to them.

“I’m in Nakuru and I’m not aware of such reports. I will find out and I will let you know once I get a report on the same,” said Moi’s press secretary, Lee Njiru.

A family source said that Moi was admitted at the Nairobi Hospital since Friday 11 and will spend the better part of the week undergoing an intensive check-up.

Moi’s admission at the Nairobi Hospital came just a day after the Moi day celebrations, which was controversially added to the Kenyan Holiday calendar.

At 95, Moi has enjoyed good health since he retired as the president back in 2002 but has struggled with a knee injury, which he got when his car was involved in an accident in 2006.

Moi took over as the Kenyan President after the death of Mzee Jomo Kenyatta back in 1978 and has been the longest-serving president in the country’s history, serving for 24 years.

Kenyan Politicians believe that Mzee Moi understands the political scope of the country and have paid him regular visits for pieces of advice.

Mzee Moi endorsed President Uhuru Kenyatta as his predecessor back in 2002, but Kenyatta failed to clinch the Presidential seat as he lost against Mwai Kibaki.
