Nandi senator Samson Cherargei is receiving treatment at St Luke Hospital, Eldoret after he was involved in a Friday night road accident.
The accident occurred along the Eldoret-Kapsabet road 2am in the morning and the senator is reported to have sustained minor injuries.
He was driving from Nandi to his Eldoret home at around 10pm when the accident happened, leaving his vehicle badly damaged.
Cherargei was among other Rift Valley politicians who had on Friday accompanied Deputy President William Ruto to a private meeting in Nandi County.
Reports indicated the function was conducted by Nandi Laibons Council of Elders for about two hours.
The rituals were meant to protect the DP from bad omen and bad political mojo.
The reports further indicated Ruto was doused with milk and honey from a special traditional gourd by elders dressed in wild animal skins.
The elders who held prayers and offered sacrifices on a nearby hill are popularly known as Orkoiyot.
They included Christopher arap Agui, Lawrence Nganai and Stephen arap Tormoi.
The DP was accompanied by Uasin Gishu governor Jackson Mandago, Nandi’s Stephen Sang, MPs Caleb Kositany (Soy), Julius Meli (Tinderet) and Samson Cherargei (Nandi senator).
Others were Cornely Serem (Aldai) and Wilson Kogo (Chesumei).
