Starehe MP, Charles Njagua popularly known as Jaguar has spoken for the first time after being discharged from hospital.
In a statement he shared on Twitter, the lawmaker said he is recovering well and will be taking a break for the next three weeks.
“I am getting on well & hoping for a full recovery. As per the doctor’s advice, I will be taking a break for the next three weeks. This is not my wish, but I assure the great people of Starehe that they will continue receiving services through my office from my able team,” said Jaguar.
This comes about a week after he underwent surgery at the MP Shah Hospital in Nairobi after developing complications with a knee that had been operated on before.
News of Jaguar’s operation was first broken by musician DK Kwenye Beat who revealed that Jaguar had dealt with recurring knee pains for a while and at one point sought medical treatment in India.
The artist posted a video of Jaguar being wheeled out of a lift by two uniformed hospital attendees.
“You are a fighter and nothing can keep you down. Fight the time and have a complete and swift recovery,” he captioned the video.
Jaguar first broke his leg in July 2018 after attempting to intervene in a protest at Marikiti Market where traders were protesting harassment by Nairobi City County officials.
Police lobbed teargas to disperse the protesters and Jaguar suffered a fracture on his right knee while running away.
