Nominated Senator Victor Prengei is dead.
Prengei succumbed to injuries he sustained following a road accident along Nakuru-Nairobi highway on Monday night.
He was heading towards Kabaraka from Nakuru town in Kenya’s Rift Valley.
Nakuru police boss Beautrice Kiraguri said his vehicle lost control, veered off the road, and hit a perimeter wall.
The Senator was rushed to Nakuru War Memorial Hospital, where he breathed his last while undergoing treatment.
Prengei was nominated to Parliament in 2017 on a Jubilee Party ticket.
He was the first lawmaker from the minority Ogiek Community.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
