Kenya’s Chief Justice David Maraga was admitted to hospital Saturday, after being involved in a road accident.
Maraga and his wife Yucabeth Nyaboke were admitted into a hospital in Nakuru after the accident, but were later flown to the capital Nairobi for better medical care.
The Chief Justice later – through a tweet – said he was okay, and that his aide and driver who were also in the car were also in fine condition.
My wife and I were involved in an accident in Nakuru this morning on our way to Church. We are undergoing medical observation. My driver and aide who were with us are also okay. We thank God for His mercies. Thank you Kenyans for your prayers and concern.— David Maraga (@dkmaraga) December 22, 2018
