A day after Bomet governor Joyce Laboso lost her battle to cancer, Kenyans on Tuesday woke up to news that her Turkana counterpart Josphat Nanok had been hospitalized.
Media outlets reported that Nanok had suffered a stroke and was rushed to hospital on Monday last week.
“He left here[Turkana] in good condition and there were no signs of sickness. On arrival in Nairobi, we were informed he had developed a situation and had to be admitted at Nairobi Hospital.”
“An endoscopy was done and an MRI scan. He was immediately put on physiotherapy as it was suspected to be a mild stroke on the left side of his face,” The Star quoted its source.
But Nanok on Tuesday night dispelled the alarmist rumors saying he is doing fine and at the comfort of his home.
In a text message to media houses, Nanok stated, “Colleagues. Ignore social media about me. I do not have a stroke and nobody should wish I have one! I was unwell last week and admitted majorly to undertake medical tests which turned good. Still on medication but able to attend duty.”
The Council of Governors (CoG) also issued a statement saying Nanok was having dinner with his family.
“Josphat Nanok is well and is currently at his home having dinner with his family,” the council stated.
