“The above patient (Mr Punjani) was admitted on July 29, 2019 following a heart attack/acute coronary syndrome. An angiogra done showed significant CAD with blocked coronary arteries.

This is not amenable with angioplasty and he has been advised to undergo coronary artery bypass grafting urgently. This has been arranged at the Asian Heart Institute for next week,” a letter from the diagnostic centre reads.

He was referred to India after a check-up at The Heart Lung Diagnostic Centre in Mombasa.

Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang‘i last week led a delegation to the Coast to wage war on graft.
