Nyamira governor John Nyagarama is admitted at the Nairobi hospital ICU. His wife mama Naomi is also admitted in the same facility.
As rumours surged over the governor’s health, there were unconfirmed reports that he had been hospitalized and was battling COVID-19, journalist Abuga Makori who is also a distant relative of the governor took to Twitter to dispel the disturbing rumours.
Let me set records straight. Yes, Nyamira Governor John Nyagarama has been hospitalized at Nairobi Hospital since Sunday last week. On Thursday, he was wheeled to the ICU. Also admitted is his wife Naomi. Nyagarama was set to receive CJ Maraga tomorrow at Manga. Quick recovery.

Those are just rumours which should be ignored, he said. It is not obvious that everybody who is admitted at Nairobi Hospital is a Covid-19 patient
The journalist confirmed he had spoken to the Governor’s son a senior staff at the County Government of Nyamira who confirmed Mzee is in a stable condition.
For about two weeks governor Nyagarama has been missing in action at his office while his hyper active wife Mama Naomi has been off public activities for a while also fueling speculation that both were battling COVID-19.
Mzee Nyagarama, is the first governor for Nyamira county serving his last term in office.
In 2018 he was diagnosed with health complication that saw him spend over 2 months in United States where he had sought for medication attention
He was scheduled to receive Chief Justice H E David Maraga at Nyamira for various public engagements including opening of the new LAW COURTS at Manga sub county. However, he has confirmed that he won’t be attending because he is in hospital.
We wish the governor quick recovery.
