Reports alleging that Jubilee Party Secretary-General Raphael Tuju was rushed to Karen Hospital, where he was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) have been making rounds on social media platforms. These prompted Kenyans to send their best wishes to the family and friends of the politician, but that has since been debunked.
In a report by kenyans.co.ke, the party's communications director Albert Mwemusi claimed the reports are false and misleading. He went to add that the ruling party's SG is doing okay and there was no cause for alarm.
"The claims being made about Tuju are baseless, and just rumours" he said.
The allegations come barely 10 months after Tuju was involved in a road accident which forced him to seek specialized medical care in the United Kingdom (UK).
This is not the first time such claims are being made about the former information minister. He, at one time, debunked reports that he was in a critical condition and pleaded with Kenyans to avoid falling for false information.
