A group of politicians from the Central Kenya region were reportedly advised against flying to South Africa to visit retired President Mwai Kibaki who is admitted at the Netcare Sunninghill Hospital in Johannesburg.
According to a source close to the Kibaki family, the political leaders and close business associates of the former President were told it was too early to pay him a visit.
They were instead told to wait until Monday, August, 29 when they can make the arrangements.
“They were told it was too soon to travel but they can make arrangements from Monday when he should be able to receive visitors,” The Standard quotes the source.
Kibaki is set to spend another week at the South Africa hospital with a medical source indicating that he is expected to undergo a review on Monday, where doctors will monitor his progress as he prepares to leave the ward.
Sources indicated that friends and other relatives were also barred from visiting Kibaki after Thursday’s surgery and will only be allowed to visit him from Monday.
Kibaki was reported to be in high spirits after doctors successfully removed a blood clot in one of the arteries in his necks and even took breakfast with close family members at his hospital bed.
His family is apparently renting a lodge opposite the Netcare Sunninghill Hospital for easy access to the health facility.
