Jubilee secretary general Raphael Tuju was on Wednesday involved in a road accident in Nakuru.
The cabinet secretary without a portfolio was on his way to former President Daniel Moi’s resting place in Kabarak.
Reports indicate that the vehicle he was traveling in with his driver and bodyguard, hit a matatu at Magina area along the busy Nakuru-Nairobi highway.
Tuju was then rushed to Kijabe Hospital. He apparently complained of chest pains while his driver fractured his arm.
