FORMER KENYAN PRESIDENT MAWAI KIBAKI FLOWN TO SOUTH AFRICA FOR TREATMENT

Former Kenyan president Mwai Kibaki has been flown to South Africa for specialised treatment after falling ill on Sunday.

The 84-year-old, who was president from 2003 until 2013, was rushed to hospital here Saturday night after he developed complications reportedly linked to an accident he was involved in more than a decade ago.

In a 2002 car accident, Kibaki suffered neck injuries and a fractured ankle during a campaign rally.

He was sworn in as President in January 2003 while still in a wheelchair.

Kibaki’s doctor, Dan Gikonyo, did not disclose the medical reasons for flying him to South Africa.

The former president’s wife, Lucy Kibaki, died in April this year after a long illness.
