National Super Alliance (NASA) CEO Norman Magaya has now been admitted in the ICU at the Nairobi Hospital.
In a statement issued by ODM Secretary-General, Edwin Sifuna, the former NASA CEO is admitted at the ICU as a precautionary measure ahead of his evacuation for further treatment.
“Mr Norman Magaya is currently admitted at the Nairobi Hospital Intensive Care Unit as a precautionary measure ahead of his evacuation abroad for comprehensive treatment,” Sifuna stated.
Magaya has been in and out of hospital since December 2017, when he suffered a heart attack.
Mr Magaya first collapsed in August 2017 at the national tallying center in Bomas of Kenya during the tabulation of presidential votes after the general election.
Last week, Mr Magaya became a subject of discussion on social media after it was alleged that his party, ODM, had neglected him following his ailment.
However, he came out to defend his party leadership and the party noting that they have always offered him support when he needed.
“I have had a recurrent heart condition for the past four months and been admitted in the hospital on three occasions latest being last week. On all occasions both the coalition leadership and the ODM party have stood with me,” he posted on Twitter.
On Thursday, Opposition leader Raila Odinga paid Magaya a visit following the social media abandonment allegations.
Odinga was accompanied by ANC nominated MP Godfrey Osotsi.
