He was transferred to the facility from the Bondo Medical Centre where he had been treated for first aid.

Julius Okel, a physician at Aga Khan, said the lawyer was out of danger, awake and speaking to his visitors.

According to Siaya Senator James Orengo who had gone to the hospital to see how he was doing,Mr Otiende had suffered severe fatigue.

“For the last two weeks, he has been in court, he has been in parliament and he has been in the constituency. It’s a question of exhaustion and dehydration but as we were in the hospital, he is stable and I think there is no cause for alarm,” Orengo said.

Amollo collapsed after he finished reading his speech at the funeral of a son of the late former MP Oloo Aringo.

His wife Linet thereafter confirmed that her husband was doing well.

She said the lawyer might have overworked himself following the activities he has been undertaking.

“We just want to dispel the rumors that have been going around and we want to put people at peace. Let them be at peace knowing that daktari [doctor] is fine. He just probably overworked himself,” Linet said.

Also at the hospital to see the MP was Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa, Kieni MP Kanini Kega, Elizabeth Ongoro amongst other leaders.
