Sudan’s Kiir Hospitalized For Exhaustion in Kenya: GoSS
KHARTOUM — The first Vice President of Sudan who is also South Sudan’s president Salva Kiir has been in the Kenyan capital since last week for medical check-up after falling ill to exhaustion, said officials from the Government of South Sudan

 "It was exhaustion. He simply was not feeling well but there was nothing specific," the minister of cabinet affairs in the oil-producing region, Kosti Manibe, told Reuters.

"He did have some check-up there [in Nairobi]. There was nothing wrong with him. He just needs to rest ... People should not be worried at all" Manibe added.

The GoSS official did not say why this was not disclosed at the time but indicated that Kiir will return to Southern Sudan capital of Juba on Sunday. He said the president’s check-up would not delay any of the discussions.

Tabitha Boutros Shokai, a member of the political bureau of Kiir’s Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM), said the president had gone to Nairobi for a general check-up and was in good health.

Kiir has not been reported to be suffering from any health issues in the past and is generally believed to be fit.
