Michuki Admitted At Aga Khan Hospital
Posted by Administrator on February 20, 2012
The government yesterday clarified that Environment minister John Michuki is admitted at Aga Khan Hospital.
In a statement released by spokesman Alfred Mutua, the government said Michuki flew back into the country from the United Kingdom last Thursday but was taken ill on Sunday and admitted at the Aga Khan Hospital. “He is undergoing medical procedures and is responding well to treatment,” said Mutua.
The minister is said to have been taken ill on Sunday night and admitted at the hospital at 3 am. The cause of the illness remains unclear. Mutua’s statement came in the wake of reports in the social media that the minister’s condition was critical. Some social networks claimed that the minister was dead.
Michuki, 81, was appointed Environment minister in April 2008 when President Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga unveiled the grand coalition Cabinet. He entered Cabinet as the Internal security minister in 2005 after Kibaki reconstituted the Cabinet following the defeat of a proposed constitution the government was sponsoring.
He oversaw the docket until January 8, 2008 at the height of post-election violence when the President announced a half Cabinet handing Michuki the ministry of Roads and Public Works.
He served in the ministry for a short while before Kibaki named him the Environment minister two months later during the formation of thegrand coalition. In July 2008 he was appointed as the acting Financeminister to stand in for Amos Kimunya who had stepped aside to allowinvestigations into the sale of the Grand Regency Hotel.
