Kiir has ‘recovered,’ according to the administration, after his voice challenge.
According to a government spokeswoman, South Sudan President Salva Kiir is currently “in excellent health” after a vocal challenge in neighboring Kenya.
The South Sudanese president was one of three foreign heads of state that attended Former President Mwai Kibaki’s State Funeral on Friday, April 29 at Nairobi’s Nyayo National Stadium.
President Kiir was unable to read his address owing to a vocal problem, according to Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta.
As a consequence, the host president summoned South Sudan’s Minister of Cabinet Affairs, Martin Elia Lomuro, to transmit Kiir’s message.
“The President is now in excellent health; the President is in good health and is here in the nation,” stated Information Minister Michael Makuei Lueth.
“Is it true that when someone is unwell, he does not recover? President Kenyatta said that he (Kiir) was ill and has a throat trouble. Does this imply that the illness is ongoing? Ailments come and go. It is no longer there “He continued.
Makuei, who also serves as the government’s spokeswoman, denied claims that the president underwent knee surgery during his recent visit to the United Arab Emirates, stating the president was there on business.
According to the Minister of Information, “I’d want to assure anxious individuals that President Salva Kiir is well and healthy.” He experienced a little throat issue while in Nairobi, but he is now great and has no problems. He is going about his customary tasks for the country. “
