Kenya's Ex-Ruler Moi, 94, Admitted To Hospital

Kenya's former President Daniel arap Moi, 94, has been admitted to a private hospital in the capital, Nairobi, for a routine medical check-up, his office says.

Mr Moi was one of the "big men" of African politics, having ruled Kenya from 1978 until his retirement in 2002.

In March, he had his knee checked at a hospital in Israel and was discharged with a "clean bill of health", his office said at the time.

He underwent a knee operation in Nairobi in January 2017. Mr Moi's knee is said to have troubled him since he was involved in a car accident in 2006
