Former President of Mali, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, has been reportedly hospitalised in a private clinic in the capital Bamako on Tuesday evening.
A doctor at the facility confirmed this on Wednesday, September 2, 2020 saying that Keita, 75, was admitted after suffering a stroke-like attack.
According to the doctor, thorough analysis which had been carried out on the ousted president shows that he is a victim of a transient ischaemic attack which is otherwise known as a mini-stroke and happens when the blood supply to the brain is disrupted for a few minutes, causing stroke-like symptoms such as numbness on one side of the body, vision difficulties or confusion in understanding speech.
“It is an alert, but he is recovering well at the moment,” the doctor further said.
Recall that Nelsdaily had reported the mutinying of Keita by young military officers at a base near Bamako where he announced his resignation on National TV and he was released on August 27 by the new junta.
