Singer Jimmy Gait opens up about being wrongly diagnosed with a throat condition by Kenyan doctors

Gospel singer Jimmy Gait has revealed that he was misdiagnosed by doctors in Nairobi.

The ‘Huratiti’ singer whose real name is James Ngaita travelled to India about two weeks ago for specialized treatment and now says he will not be undergoing throat surgery as earlier announced.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Gait said after seeking the services of another medic, specifically from India, and after consultations, the doctor said the proposed operation would have left him unable to ever sing again.

“This is because your voice would have permanently changed. You couldn’t have been able to sing. That was truly shocking and I couldn’t believe my ears,” said the singer.

According to the singer, doctors in Nairobi diagnosed him with a strange throat condition and recommended an operation.

The singer further said that he was shocked that Kenyan doctors quickly recommended surgery before carrying out any tests on him, suggesting that they were only out for his money.

“I am shocked that a doctor would rather make money from me than give me the proper treatment,” he says.

The singer then went ahead to share a clip of a doctor describing his problem and one Dr Sanjay Khanna who has been treating him at BLK Hospital in India says that the pain he was experiencing in his throat was actually as a result of increased acid production leading to an infection in his stomach.

Dr Khanna also mentioned that the artiste is responding positively to medication and would be discharged soon.

This is not the first time a celebrity has come out to reveal that they were misdiagnosed. Former media personality Njambi Koikai has previously opened up about being given the wrong diagnosis prior to being diagnosed with Endometriosis which she is recovering from.
