President’s Deputy Chief of Staff Rebluud Kesolei is reported to have suffered a stroke in Guam two weeks ago while attending the Micronesian Island Forum related meeting when he fell ill and he was rushed to the hospital.

According to reports from the Office of the President, he is being stabilized at the Guam Memorial Hospital until he is allowed to fly back home to seek further medical care.

In 2017, Deputy Chief of Staff suffered a ruptured blood vessel in his head and airlifted to Taiwan for medical emergency.  Fortunately, top Taiwan neurosurgeon was on island who was able to do an emergency surgery to relieve pressure on his head before he was airlifted out.

Deputy Chief of Staff remains under observation until he is cleared to fly back home. (L.N. Reklai)
