Starehe Member of Parliament Charles Njagua, popularly known as Jaguar, has been hospitalised.

The artist-turned-politician checked into a city hospital where he underwent an emergency knee surgery.

According to P Unit's member Gabu, Jaguar underwent surgery after sustaining an injury while in fitness training.

"We regularly go for our routine jogs and Karura forest, and his knee has been recurrently causing him pain," he revealed.

After a couple of unsuccessful check-ups, it is said that he could take the pain no more, and his doctors advised him to undergo surgery as a matter of urgency.

"He had no option, and so we accompanied him to M P Shah hospital," he added.

It was a minor operation, and the legislator is currently recuperating.

"We expect him to be out of hospital soon. Doctors have advised that he be put on adequate bed rest for a couple of days so his body may repair and heal. Certainly, he will still be able to deliver his duties for the people of Starehe," the singer noted.

In a social media post in which Jaguar is seen being bedridden, well-wishers have flooded the post with messages of encouragement and quick recovery notes.

"Quick recovery honourable. I wonder what happened," wrote a concerned fan.

At the time, Gabu had only revealed scanty details of the unfolding event.

"Mhesh ako sawa. God mbele manze. (He is fine. God is good),” said Gabu.

During the operation, the legislator was accompanied by his bosom buddies, including gospel star D K Kwenye beat.

The parliamentarian was still sedated and couldn’t comment by the time of going to press.
