Turkana Governor Josphat Nanok has given an assurance that he is well and recuperating at home.
The governor insisted he was doing fine and was not in the hospital as earlier indicated.
He, however, did not disclose what he was ailing from despite having told his colleagues that he had been unwell.
Other sources told the Star that Nanok had complained of abdominal pain and facial weakness before going to the hospital.
The governor’s communication team did not deny or confirm the reports.
One of his communication directors said he was not aware of the incident, but said he would make inquiries and get back.
However, several attempts to get a confirmation from him thereafter were futile as several calls and text messages went unanswered.
Another source said Nanok’s team had not been notified about what was ailing the governor.
According to the source, Nanok left the county on Monday last week, headed to Nairobi for an official function but developed complications mid-flight and he was rushed to hospital.
“He left here 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,” the source said.
