Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso jetted back into the country on Sunday after weeks of receiving medical treatment in India and Britain.

Sources say that Governor Laboso arrived at around 9.00 am, Sunday and is still under medication.

Speaking at Deliverance Church in Mulot, Narok County on Sunday, Bomet Deputy Governor Hillary Barchok, who has been in charge of the county, said the governor is yet to be released by doctors to resume her duties.

He urged residents and the country to pray for her and noted that she had responded well to medication.

"The governor arrived in the country this morning, and will be continuing with treatment. She needs our prayers and support," said Barchok as quoted by a local daily.

The Governor’s ailment has remain undisclosed. Her deputy Dr. Barchok during a prayer function organized last month in the county urged the nation to respect her privacy.

"The state of her health is strictly a family affair. We cannot speak for them. She should be given the support she needs," he said

On May 29, Governor Laboso left the country for Britain to receive treatment. She was admitted at the Royal Madden NHS hospital where she underwent treatment for nearly a month.

She was then transferred to India for further treatment three weeks ago.

While in Britain, NASA leader Raila Odinga, Ambassador Manoah Espisu, Chief Justice David Maraga and Kericho Governor Paul Chepkwony paid her a visit.

Former Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto also paid her a visit.

She is currently under doctor’s watch until when she is cleared to resume duties.?
