Doctors attending to ailing Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso at a Nairobi hospital have advised on limited visits.
A statement from her office on Monday stated that the doctors had recommended that she be accorded enough rest so as to aid her recovery.
“The governor is recuperating and is under observation by her doctors who have recommended [for] her enough rest and limited visitation for speedy recovery,” County Communications Director Ezra Kirui said in the statement.
Dr Laboso was flown back to Kenya from India where she had been transferred to from a hospital in London where she sought treatment.
Family members have said that she has been in the intensive care unit (ICU) for the last two weeks where very few people have been allowed to visit her.
Before flying out to the UK for treatment, Dr Laboso had kept a low profile for a month, skipped key public functions and delegated duties to her deputy and county executive committee members (CECs), raising speculations.
Deputy Governor Hillary Barcho and County Secretary Evalyne Rono have been steering the county affairs for the last two months in the absence of Dr Laboso after she delegated power through an executive order before she left the country.
Dr Laboso took over from Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM) party leader Isaac Ruto in the last General Election, to become one of the three female governors in the country. The others are Ann Waiguru (Kirinyaga) and Charity Ngilu (Kitui).
