CS Amina Mohammed on Wednesday, February 12, contacted president Uhuru Kenyatta and informed him that Jubilee Sec-Gen Raphael Tuju had been involved in a road accident.
Tuju was on his way to the late second president of Kenya Daniel arap Moi’s burial when the accident took place.
According to the Standard, Amina arrived at the scene of the accident minutes after it occurred and contacted the president, who then ordered that Tuju be airlifted to hospital.
The publication reported that a chopper that was meant to take off from Wilson Airport to Kabarak was delayed by around 10 minutes after Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai received a call from the president.
Mutyambai is said to have asked the pilot to wait for a few minutes as he spoke to the president on phone.
Afterwards, he asked Police Argwing boss Rogers Mbithi to make sure Tuju was taken to Nairobi from Kijabe hospital.
On Friday, February 14, Jubilee party informed that Tuju was under very good medical care administered by a team of specialists and nurses at the Karen Hospital.
Through communications director Albert Memusi, the party informed that the CS was responding well to treatment and expressed content with the level of services offered to him.
“He is responding well to the treatment and making good progress in his recuperation.
“As a party, we are in close contact with his immediate family and they have expressed satisfaction with the level of care being provided,” the statement by the party read in part.
