Jubilee Secretary-General Raphael Tuju has reconciled with a matatu driver who was involved in the road accident that almost cost him his life.
Tuju met the driver, Bernard Njuguma Muya at the scene of the accident along the Nakuru-Nairobi highway where they reconciled and agreed to forget the past.
“Please forgive me for what happened, it was not my fault,” Njuguna was quoted by Standard.
Responding to Muya’s apology, Tuju hugged him, burst out laughing and said he has forgiven him, further noting that he has no ill feelings against him.
The Jubilee official also disclosed that he had spoken with Muya twice before the meeting.
The two presented goodies to AIC Kijabe Hospital where they were rushed following the grisly road crash.
“The intervention in this hospital is what has kept me, it was critical,” he said.
Tuju and a group of well-wishers walked 57 kilometers from Karen Hospital to Kijabe Hospital to raise funds for the purchase of modern equipment for the facility’s theatre.
The charity walk raised KSh 11.4 million out of a target of KSh 13 million.
The event was attended by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s younger brother Muhoho Kenyatta, CSs Amina Mohamed of Sports, Prof Margaret Kobia of Public Service and ICT’s Joe Mutheru.
Kiambu Governor James Nyoro, and his Kirinyaga counterpart Anne Waiguru also participated in the charity walk.
