Deputy governor taken ill ahead of FM talk show
Bungoma Deputy Governor Ngome Kibanani was rushed to Nairobi Hospital on Wednesday morning after he fell sick before attending a show at a local radio station.
Prof Ngome was set to appear on the morning programme at Sulwe FM but he did not make it.
Bungoma Director of Communication Tim Machi told Nairobi News that the DG woke up “feeling weak” and that he was taken to the hospital immediately.
“It is not true that he collapsed. He was set to attend the show but when he woke up today, he felt weak and went to Nairobi Hospital,” he said.
Prof Ngome deputises Wycliffe Wangamati and were both elected on Ford Kenya ticket in last year’s General Election.
He is a renowned academician from the minority Tiriki community residing in Bungoma.
