6:45Am Wednesday, Jubilee Party secretary general Raphael Tuju was involved in a head-on collision with a matatu at Magina on the Nairobi-Nakuru highway on his way to Mzee Moi’s Kabarak home for his burial.
The Wednesday morning accident involved three vehicles: Tuju’s car, a matatu and a Toyota Allion saloon car
A doctor who spoke to a local publication on condition of anonymity said Tuju had broken ribs on his right side and complained of difficulty in breathing.
He further said that Tuju had a slight injury on his intestines which led to internal bleeding and an operation at AIC Kijabe Hospital where he was rushed after the accident.
A video of Tuju who appeared critically injured arriving at the health facility has since gone viral on social media.
In the 7-second clip, he is seen tightly wrapped up on an ambulance garney as nurses rush him into the emergency room.
Kijabe hospital officials later announce that Mr Tuju was in stable condition and that he had been airlifted to Karen Hospital for further care.
Tuju is currently recuperating at Karen Hospital in Nairobi.
