Nyong’o flown to Nairobi for treatment
Kisumu Governor Anyang' Nyong'o was yesterday airlifted to Nairobi for specialised treatment following a low blood pressure diagnosis.
Aga Khan Hospital medical superintendent, Dr Sam Oula, said the governor was flown from Kisumu International Airport to the sister facility in the capital.
Prof Nyong'o was airlifted to Nairobi by the Amref Flying Doctors service.
"The governor has been flown to Nairobi for conclusive tests," Dr Oula said.
“We kept him in the hospital overnight. Though he is stable, we need to [carry out] further tests. We did not have conclusive results.”
Prof Nyong'o became unwell at Uzima University grounds in the county on Saturday during the installation of Philip Anyolo as the archbishop of Kisumu.
He was admitted to Aga Khan Hospital after feeling dizzy during the function.
Doctors stabilised and monitored him and later his communication secretary said he had been diagnosed with low blood pressure and was put on bed rest.
