Youth Affairs Principal Secretary Lilian Omollo was admitted to Kenyatta National Hospital on Wednesday morning after falling ill at Lang’ata Women’s Prison.
Mrs Omollo, according to sources at the prison, complained of dizziness and was trembling at night, forcing staff to take her to the clinic.
But her condition got worse and she was taken to KNH in the morning, where she was admitted to the hospital’s private wing.
Mrs Omollo spent the night at the detention on orders issued by the anti-corruption court on Tuesday.
She, National Youth Service Director-General Richard Ndubai and 22 others on Tuesday faced a long list of charges relating to the loss of Sh468 million at NYS.
Mrs Omollo and the other accused pleaded not guilty to conspiring to commit corruption at the youth agency.
