Saturday June 6, 2020 – Nandi Senator Samson Cherargei has been rushed to hospital after being involved in a road accident at Kapseret Centre along Eldoret-Kapsabet Road.
This comes only few days after he was ousted from the Justice and Legal Affairs Committee.
The Jubilee Senator was reportedly driving himself from Nandi County to his residence in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu, on Friday night at around 10 p.m.
Multiple sources confirmed that the Senator had been rushed to St Lukes Hospital in Eldoret, having sustained minor injuries.
Cherargei reportedly veered off the main road and hit barriers at an ongoing by-pass construction.
The Senator’s vehicle, a black Prado, was extensively damaged after the accident.
Cherargei was part of the entourage that accompanied Deputy President William Ruto to a private ceremony in Nandi County on Friday, June 5th.
Other leaders included Uasin Gishu Governor, Jackson Mandago, Nandi Governor Stephen Sang and Soy MP, Caleb Kositany.
In the event, Ruto met over 50 Nandi leaders and a section of religious leaders in a 2-hour closed-door meeting.
According to leaders present at the ceremony, the meeting was meant to prepare the DP ahead of the 2022 elections and protect him from bad omens.
Cherargei is a staunch ally of DP Ruto and was part of the Senate leaders who President Uhuru Kenyatta cracked the whip on.
