Jubilee’s Communication Director, Albert Mwemusi has responded to reports alleging that the party’s Secretary-General Raphael Tuju has been admitted at Karen Hospital Intensive Care unit.
On Thursday, November 12, Mwemusi denied the reports circulating on social media
“These are baseless reports based on unfounded rumours,” Mwemusi stated.
Kenyans online wished Tuju quick recovery based on the unconfirmed reports.
“Hearing reports that Jubilee Secretary General Raphael Tuju is in ICU, Karen Hospital. He is a CS without portfolio. May he heal quickly,” one netizen reacted.
This is not the first time such reports emerge, especially after Tuju was involved in a road accident on his way back from the late former President Daniel Moi’s funeral in Kabarak on Wednesday, February 12.
The former Minister of Information and Communications was later flown to the United Kingdom for specialized treatment.
On June 25, he spoke against reports alleging that he was in a critical condition and was admitted in a city hospital.
“I am doing very well. The other time they had ‘killed’ me, now if I am in ICU that is a big improvement, from death to ICU I cannot be doing that bad,” Tuju stated.
The CS is meanwhile battling for the revival of his business in a Ksh1.6 billion debt case. In September 2020, he petitioned for the removal of a judge in the case.
His company was placed under receivership. However, Tuju obtained an order from the Appeal Court stopping plans to seize his property.
