Kenyan authorities on Saturday confirmed that 33 cases of suspected cholera have been reported in the past two days from a trade forum which ended in Nairobi on Wednesday.

Nairobi County Government Health Executive, Bernard Muia said 33 patients are admitted in various hospitals in Nairobi and doctors are expected to release final results on the suspected cholera.

“Those admitted are recovering well, we have no fatalities and according to the latest report they are doing well,” Muia told journalists in Nairobi. The victims ate food served during the Kenya Trade Week held in Nairobi this week.

National Treasury Cabinet Secretary Henry Rotich and his Trade and Industrialization counterpart Adan Mohamed are among patients admitted to a Nairobi hospital with suspected symptoms of cholera.

Mohamed who had symptoms was however treated and discharged Friday evening. However, Mohamed’s Trade Principal Secretary Chris Kiptoo is still hospitalized.

However, Director of Medical Services Jackson Kioko downplayed the issue saying that the information he had received indicated that the two government officials and others were suffering from food poisoning.
