Moses Wetang’ula falls ill on Kisumu-bound flight


MOSES-WETANGULA-CUBungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula was rushed to a hospital in an ambulance after he fell ill in a Kisumu–bound flight on Friday.

The senator started sweating heavily and had difficulty breathing a few minutes before the Jambojet plane landed. He was attended to by a doctor who was among the passengers on the flight.

ODM Communications Director Phillip Etale said the senator was admitted to Aga Khan Hospital. He was discharged after two hours.

“He started feeling uneasy and sweating. There was a doctor on board who administered first aid to him before he was taken to hospital in an ambulance.

Doctors at the hospital said the senator showed signs of fatigue as he had just landed back in the country after a visit to Morocco.

Fredrick Okango, a passenger who was in the Jambojet flight, said Mr Wetang’ula developed breathing problems a few minutes before the plane landed at Kisumu Airport.

He said one of the flight attendants asked if there was a doctor on board.

Mr Okango said the doctor administered first aid to the senator, who was clutching his stomach and was sweating.

“We landed at around 8.40 am. The senator could walk, though he had to be supported to the ambulance,” he said.
