Harambee Stars coach Ghost Mulee could be a gone case had he no sought urgent medical treatment In India a month ago.

He was diagnosed by his Indian doctor with obstructive sleep apnea – a medical condition that causes deep snoring whilst depleting the body’s oxygen supply.

Mulee in an interview with the Star said that he was saved by God’s grace because he could have died while in his sleep.

“The doctor told me that I could have easily died in my sleep given the condition depletes oxygen in the system and can easily end a patient’s life if not treated well,” the Radio Jambo breakfast show co-host said.

He recalled instances where his breathing could stop for about a minute and a half.

“It’s a condition that gets me snoring so much and sometimes I even stay for one and half minutes without breathing. The oxygen level goes below the normal,” he added.

Obstructive sleep apnea’s other symptoms include daytime drowsiness, hyperactivity, difficulties in breathing and sporadic insomnia.

Other symptoms include depression, low libido, memory loss, fatigue and reduced concentration.

Mulee also set the record straight on donating one of his kidneys to his ailing brother.

There have been reports that he was in India to donate one of his kidneys to his brother but this is not the case. He explained that doctors advised that he could be treated without necessarily having to undergo a transplant.

Just before he left India, he got to an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist who diagnosed him and he decided to get treated there.
