Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso has been put on full bed rest, the county office confirmed on Monday.
The office said the number of people visiting her at Nairobi Hospital has been restricted to allow her enough rest.
A statement from her office through the director of communication, Ezra Kirui, said Laboso was recuperating but is still under observation.
“The governor’s doctors have recommended she get enough rest for speedy recovery and advise limited visits,” read the statement.
“She acknowledges the overwhelming goodwill messages and prayers as she responds to treatment.”
The governor has been undergoing medication at Nairobi Hospital since she arrived from India on June 14 after receiving treatment.
She left the country on May 29 for the United Kingdom (Royal Madden NHS hospital) where she stayed before being transferred for further treatment in India.
During the 46 days she was out of the country, Deputy Governor Hillary Barchok had been running the county’s affairs with the assistance of County Secretary Evalyne Rono.
Details of what ails the governor have not been shared to the public.
