“I am happy to announce that Mzee Moi is recovering steadily and continues to receive medical care under the professional team led by his personal physician Dr David Silverstein," said Njiru as quoted by Nation.

“Mzee is okay. He is still in hospital ... I saw him. Contrary to speculation on social media, Mzee Moi is not in the ICU. He is in the general ward and improves by the day," he added.

He divulged that Mzee Moi is receiving treatment at the VIP wing, adding that only close family members are allowed to see him.

“At the moment only very close family members are allowed to see him at the VIP wing," he said.
