STATEMENT ON THE HEALTH STATUS OF MR. NORMAN MAGAYA
Our attention is drawn to widespread speculation and rumors in sections of the mainstream media and in social media regarding Mr. Norman Magaya’s health. Ordinarily, issues to do with an individual’s health would be handled privately but due to his stature in society and public profile, we acknowledge the anxiety that the ongoing speculation is causing.
Mr. Magaya has therefore given us his express consent and has authorized the ODM Party to clear the air and brief the nation on the true position.
Mr. Norman Magaya is currently admitted at The Nairobi Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit as a precautionary measure ahead of his evacuation abroad for comprehensive treatment.
This follows ongoing management and follow up for a persistent ailment which first began in 2017. His most recent admission occurred on the evening of Wednesday, September 4th.
He is currently stable and under the close watch and supervision of an expert team of doctors and we would like to assure the public that he continues to get the best care possible. In the meantime his doctors call for limited visits to allow for proper management of his situation.
I would like to make a special appeal that we respect his privacy and that of his family during this time as he recuperates. The ODM Party shall continue to support Mr. Magaya as we have always done until his full recovery. Ends.
