"The former president touched down at JKIA shortly after 8pm and proceeded to his residence at Kabarnet Gardens," he addded.

The former president who was admitted at Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv was treated and discharged on Friday, March 16 after the successful medical check-up despite rumors doing rounds he was no more.

"The old man have been discharged from Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv after medical check-up but he will remain in Israel. Thank you for yours prayers," wrote Gideon.

Moi's trip to Israel was met with a lot of denunciation by a larger section of Kenyans who thought his failed governance was the reason he could not access better treatment within the country.

This anger was probably the reason as to why some Kenyans took it to social media with false information that Moi was no more.

The government was forced to issue a statement on the status of the former Head of State while condemning the rumors.

"Ordinarily the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Trade does not react to misinformation. However, we are forced to clarify that the fake news maliciously circulated by some individuals regarding the well-being of former President Daniel Arap Moi is completely untrue," a statement by the ministry of Foreign Affairs said.
