Magaya who has been ailing since 2017 is said to be having a recurrent heart condition.
Mr. Magaya ailment was first known to the public after he collapsed in August 2017 during the tabulation of presidential votes at the Bomas of Kenya.
The ODM Party, in September 2019 was on the receiving end of criticism as it was accused of failing to attend to the needs of their ailing staff.
However, Magaya himself refuted the claims saying that the party had stood by him through his recovery journey.
“I have had a recurrent heart condition for the past four months and been admitted in hospital on three occasions the latest being last week. On all occasions both the coalition leadership and the @TheODMparty have stood with me,” tweeted Mr Magaya.
The party, on the other hand, cleared the air by stating that they having been supportive of the former boss.
“The ODM Party is aware that Nasa CEO Norman Magaya has been unwell. We continue to support him in every possible way and wish him a quick recovery. Every request for support has been dealt with as and when received by the party,” tweeted ODM party through their official handle.
Apart from claims of neglect, rumour also had it that the former NASA boss had passed on.
Magaya himself was quick to speak up, proving that he was alive.
“Contrary to fake news being perpetrated by agents of doom that I have passed away, I wish to confirm that am well and putting in a good fight to fully recover.”
