Environment Minister John Michuki has been admitted to a city hospital over an undisclosed illness.The 80-year-old minister was admitted to the Aga Khan University Hospital on Sunday morning, only two days after arriving from the United Kingdom where he was undergoing treatment.On Monday, Government Spokesman Alfred Mutua sent a statement to newsrooms in an apparent move to clear the air amid rumours and speculation in the social media about the minister’s health.In his brief, Dr Mutua said the Kangema MP “was undergoing medical procedures and is responding well to treatment.’’Other independent sources said the minister arrived in the country on Thursday from London in the company of his wife, Josephine, and went straight to his Nairobi home.The sources said he was taken ill early Sunday and was rushed to the Aga Khan University Hospital where he was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit.He flew to the UK a few days before Christmas and had been there since. His last official function was the climate change conference in Durban from November 28 to December 9.
