Former powerful Cabinet minister Simeon Nyachae is fighting for his life at the Nairobi Hospital Intensive Care Unit after falling ill a week ago.
Nyachae was admitted at the hospital after he allegedly tripped and fell at home but while admitted, complained of chest pains and was taken to the intensive care unit for specialized and close monitoring.
His eldest son, Charles Ayako Nyachaei, a judge at the East African Court of Justice, confirmed to the Star that his father was diagnosed with a chest infection.
The former chairman of the defunct Constitution Implementation Commission was, however, guarded on the details of the illness, citing family confidentiality.
“What I can tell you is that he complained of chest pains and was put in ICU”.
