Baringo Senator Gideon Moi has confirmed that former President Daniel Moi is still admitted at Nairobi hospital where he is expected to spend a few more days.

Gideon confirmed that Moi who was admitted on Wednesday as the country marked the 55 Jamhuri day celebrations is responding well to treatment with great improvement on his health and thanked Kenyans for their prayers.

“Mzee Moi was admitted to hospital but he is getting better and we are confident God is taking care of him because of your prayers. We are very hopeful that in the next few days, he will be back with us at home,” Senator Moi said.

The Senator was speaking during the 14 Graduation ceremony at Kabarak University where he represented the ailing former president.

He also delivered Moi’s good will message to the graduands, calling on them to embrace core values of integrity, excellence and professionalism and being mindful of the welfare of others.

Moi skips Kabarak University Graduation

Daniel Moi who was to preside over the event skipped the event after he was admitted to hospital for a routine medical check-up.

The former head of State has been in and out of hospital in the last year with the Baringo Senator coming out strongly to take up the political leadership mantle from the retired President.

In April this year, Deputy President William Ruto visited Moi at his Kabarak home but failed to meet the statesman with his handlers stating that the visit coincided with Mr. Moi’s medical appointment.

However, DP Ruto’s allies led by Senator Kipchumba Murkomen read malice and alleged that Baringo Senator Gideon Moi had blocked the mission.
