Nominated Senator Victor Prengei of the Jubilee Party on Monday night, August 16, passed away after sustaining injuries in a road accident.
Prengei, who was nominated to represent the youth and minorities in the Senate, was involved in an accident in London area of Nakuru town after which he was rushed to Nakuru PGH for emergency treatment.
The Senator, however, passed on shortly after admission.
Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui led local leaders to the hospital where arrangements were being made to move the body – as at the time of publishing.
The fallen Senator hailed from the minority Ogiek community and in 2017 made history when he became the first member of his community to serve in Parliament.
