Raphael Tuju’s driver and bodyguard were airlifted to Nairobi after the accident and were reported to have suffered some fractures in the right leg and arm respectively.

“The matatu had swerved to avoid hitting a car that had stopped ahead of it abruptly when it collided head-on with that of Tuju,” the Central police commander Patrick Lumumba said.

The matatu driver says he was avoiding to hit another car when he collided with Tuju’s car.
