On Thursday, Nov 18, reports had spread online that the National assembly speaker, Justin Muturi is hospitalized after felling sick.

In the deleted tweet by blogger Cyprian Nyakundi, he alleged Muturi was rushed to NMS hospital in an ambulance.

However, coming to defence of Muturi, The National assembly has refuted allegations saying the speaker currently chairs business of the house meeting at parliament building.“

This is Fake News, Such an unfortunate rumour. The Speaker JB Muturi is as fit as a fiddle," National assembly tweet reads

"The Speaker JB Muturi is currently presiding over this afternoon’s sitting of the National Assembly," they added

Therefore, This Writer can now authoritatively say the tweet by blogger Nyakundi alleging Justin Muturi is hospitalized was fake and shared in bad faith and should be ignored with contempt it deserves.
