Raphael Tuju was in the company of his driver and a bodyguard when the accident occurred.
Tuju was taken to Kijabe Mission Hospital for preliminary care from where he is set to be airlifted to Nairobi and is expected to be taken to the Nairobi Hospital.
Raphel Tuju, Jubilee Secretary-General, was injured after his vehicle hit a matatu causing injuries to him, his driver and bodyguard.
Photos taken from the accident scene revealed Tuju’s black Prado vehicle badly damaged at the front following the impact of colliding with the matatu.
Raphael Tuju reportedly complained of chest pains and is expected to be airlifted to Nairobi for admission at the Nairobi Hospital where he is set to receive specialized treatment.
Several passengers driving in the matatu that collided with CS Raphael Tuju’s car have been injured and rushed to Nakuru referral hospital while Tuju, his bodyguard and driver are receiving care at the Kijabe Mission Hospital.
Raphael Tuju, according to Doctors at Kijabe Mission Hospital, is not stable enough to be flown to Nairobi for treatment at the Nairobi hospital as had been earlier requested by his family.
The number of matatu occupants that collided with CS Tuju’s vehicle remains scanty with photos revealing that the matatu was shaken up and, given the Kenyan mentality, Raphael Tuju was given all the attention as other passengers remained ignored.
President Daniel Moi is set to be buried today after his passing on, on the 4th of February 2020, and national service was held yesterday at the Nyayo stadium.
