Bomet Senator, Wilfred Lesan, who was involved in a road accident on Thursday noon at Ilmashariani area along the Narok-Mai Mahiu Highway is well.
“Let the people of Bomet and the entire nation know that I am well, and I will celebrate Christmas with them,” Mr Leshan told eDaily in a phone interview.
According to Narok North Deputy OCPD, Charles Ouma, Senator Lesan was headed to Bomet from Nairobi when his vehicle, a Toyota Prado, collided with an oncoming private car, a Toyota Premio, a kilometer from Narok Town.
OCPD Ouma said the Senator’s driver was overtaking another vehicle when they collided with the oncoming Toyota Premio.
Lesan, his driver and personal assistant escaped the accident unscathed as well as passengers in the oncoming car.
Lesan reported the matter at Narok Police Station Thursday afternoon before proceeding to hospital for check up.
The two vehicles were towed to Narok Police Station.
The Senator later attended two fundraising events in Bomet County before returning to the capital Nairobi.
“I probably will head back to Bomet to celebrate Christmas with my family and the County people. But I will travel to Nairobi to attend a Senate special sitting to debate the recently passed Elections Amendment Bill slated for Wednesday, December 28,” said Lesan.
The sitting called by Senate Speaker Ekwee Ethuro will begin at 10am.
