- Doctors at Nairobi hospital are currently attending to the former Kenyan President, Daniel arap, who was admitted on Monday morning after he had complained of pain in his lower back, his spokesman, Lee Njiru said.
“The former president experienced lower back pains following a strain,” Mr Njiru said, disclosing that Moi would be admitted for at least two days to allow doctors to observe and treat him.
Moi's doctor, David Siverstein, said "the former President is currently undergoing investigation, observation and treatment."
Moi, 83, became the second President of Kenya after the death of his predecessor, Jomo Kenyatta. He ruled the East African country for 24 years [between 1978 and 2002].
Moi's hospitalisation followed his talks with the former UN chief last Friday. Kofi Annan has been trying to resolve Kenya's post electoral unrests.
Two years ago, Moi was admitted after his car was involved in an accident while travelling to Nairobi from Nakuru. He escaped serious injury.
The police said the accident resulted after a pickup truck had lost control and slid into the former President's car.
