Recent incidents of leaders collapsing worrying
By Veronica Onjoro | Updated Dec 15, 2015 at 10:10 EAT

Internationally, it started with Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe, who collapsed in public, then Zambia’s Edward Lungu.

Media reports this week said Tourism Cabinet Secretary Najib Balala collapsed after having lunch at Masai Mara, while Narok Deputy Governor Evelyn Aruasa fainted while giving a speech during the Maasai Mara University graduation ceremony.

The other sad news was that of Laikipia Majority Leader Ephraim Mwangi, who collapsed and later died.

The incidents have left Kenyans worried.

Could it be that some leaders might be under pressure to perform? Demands on leaders to deliver satisfactory results have also increased over time.

Due to their busy schedules, leaders have no time to spend with families and friends as they are always on the move. But leaders as well as wananchi need to prioritise their health and take time off to relax.

Further, how equipped are they to handle such emergencies?

Let the national and county governments equip county hospitals with proper medicine and staff.
