    “The party is in close and constant communication with the family to monitor every progress made and will continue giving progress reports on his condition,” the statement read.

    The Cabinet Secretary without portfolio has been recuperating at the Karen Hospital following his accident on Wednesday, February 12.

    In a statement issued by the party on Monday, February 17, it announced that doctors had assured them that Tuju had full control of his limbs just as he did when he walked into the Accident and Emergency Section at AIC Kijabe Hospital after the accident.

    The party further confirmed that doctors taking care of him had begun to wean him off sedation, added that his injuries were healing well.

    Tuju was hospitalized after his car was involved in a head-on collision with a matatu at Magina on the Nairobi-Nakuru Highway.

    He was on his way to the burial of the late second President of Kenya, Daniel arap Moi, when the crash took place.

    Jubilee's statement further disclosed that to reduce the risk of aggravating Tuju's injuries, he had been immobilised since Friday, February 14.

    Tuju's family requested that those wishing to visit Tuju in the hospital allow him more time to recover before making the trip.

    "The family through the party wishes to thank all those who have been praying, sending messages of goodwill or encouraging them in one way or another.

    "They further wish to request that the patient be allowed more time to recover before he can be visited," the statement read in part.
