Prominent city lawyer Cliff Ombetta was rushed to the Nairobi Hospital on Saturday morning, after suffering a heart attack. In a tweet on February 13th morning, the lawyer revealed the heart attack was due to cholesterol because he had chest pains.
“I was admitted at the Nairobi Hospital after suffering an attack. Doctors said that the chest pains were caused by cholesterol. Can you believe that? Yes, it is true,” Ombeta tweeted.
Before the heart attack, lawyer Ombeta was sharing his weight loss journey and had lost 9kgs, from his intense workout routine which he kicked off late last year.
Cholesterol is a waxy substance found in the blood. High cholesterol can lead to the development of fatty deposits in blood vessels which eventually grow and hinder blood flow through the arteries.
