Classic FM radio presenter Maina Kageni has been discharged from the Agha khan Hospital where he was receiving treatment following surgery on his foot.
The insanely popular radio guy was injured in Kajiado while on his usual promotional tours of the country sponsored by Ministry of Tourism as it seeks to to promote domestic tourism, reports Tuko.
The good news of Maina Kageni leaving hospital was broken to fans yesterday August, 17, by Nick Odhiambo who has replaced him temporarily on the Morning Breakfast show alongside Maina’s ‘side kick’ Mwalimu King’ang’i aka Churchill.
According to Nick Odhiambo, Maina Kageni has been advised to steer clear of alcohol for a year to help speed up the healing process. The radio King is said to be in good condition and that it’s just a matter of time before he goes back on air.
During his stay at the private facility, Maina was reportedly accorded high security and only a few select individuals were allowed to pay him a visit, Nick Odhiambo shared, likening Maina’s stint at the hospital to that of being in a five star hotel.
Now here is the problem. Maina is a huge fan and consumer of whisky and word has it it accompanies all his meals.
“The show will now be beginning at 4am with praise and worship. I can foresee him starting a church,” The Standard quoted a joking Mwalimu King’ang’i who was referring the doctor’s advice that Maina should stay away from alcohol until he recovers fully.
“I wonder what will replace his famous quote, ‘I need a whiskey’, he said.
