Governor Hassan Joho is receiving treatment over Malaria at a hospital in Mombasa, County director of communications Richard Chacha has said.
Joho was admitted to the hospital three days ago after being hit by a bout of headache.
Richard Chacha told Standard Digital on the phone that he is due for discharge today.
According to his earlier itinerary, Joho was today scheduled to address a Future Cities conference in Mombasa.

Former Nigeria president General Olesegun Obasanjo who is attending the conference visited the governor in hospital today noon.
His close ally Mvita MP Abdulswamad Nassir also paid him a visit.
In an audio recording of their interaction, Joho notes that he is getting stronger by the day and will head home soon. It is not clear when the audio was recorded.
The two encouraged Kenyans to use local herbs to improve their health.
Joho also said he has been strengthened by ODM’s win of the Kibra by-election and will soon join the MP-elect Imran Okoth in celebration.
The Governor had earlier congratulated Imran on his win.
“This is a clear demonstration of maturity by Kibra electorate, who defied bribery and intimidation. The ODM party has once again sent a clear message to our competitors,” he said on Twitter.
