Moi’s right hand man broke his silence over the death rumours and assured citizens that Mzee was in no danger.
The stern face Njiru affirmed that the second president of the republic was having one of his regular medical checkups.
“It is wise and recommended that everyone gets a medical check-up, so that is what retired president Moi did,” commented the family spokesperson.
Reports pointed out that the ailing ex-politician was suffering from a lung condition identified as pleural effusion.
Experts familiar with the disease explained that it referred to the accumulation of fluids between the lungs and chest.
Details highlighted that conditions such as kidney failure and congestive heart failure, could be one of the many causes for the disease.
