Former Kenyan President Emilio Mwai Kibaki has been flown to South Africa for specialized treatment.

Reports indicate that the former Head of State is suffering from complications arising from a December 2012 accident as he returned from a presidential campaign rally.

He was later hospitalized in London, United Kingdom but went ahead to win the 2003 elections, defeating his former boss-turned-political foe Daniel Toroitich Arap Moi.

An octogenarian Kibaki, whose wife Lucy died in April, served as Kenyan President from 2002 to 2013.
