Kisumu Governor Anyang Nyongo has been rushed to Aga Khan University Hospital in Kisumu.

The governor was rushed to hospital after falling sick at Uzima University where he was attending the installation of Rev. Philip Anyolo as the new archbishop for Kisumu Diocese.

Aga Khan Hospital Medical Superintendent Dr Sam Oula revealed that Nyongo was rushed to the facility after he felt uncomfortable during mass at the Uzima University grounds in Kisumu.

“He was brought while feeling dizzy and we have administered the necessary medication. We are still keeping him to monitor for any complications that may arise.” Oula said.

For now, he is stable and in good hands,” he added.

The governor’s communications secretary Aloice Ager sought to allay fears on his state of health.

“The governor just excused himself to go for medical check-up. No cause for alarm.” Ager said.
