Nominated Senator Victor Prengei is dead.
Prengei died after he was involved in a road accident on Monday night, August 16, at Gioto area in Nakuru County, area police boss Beatrice Kiraguri says.
The lawmaker was heading towards Kabarak direction from Nakuru Town, when the vehicle he was driving lost control and careened off the road before landing in a ditch at 9:45pm.
Reports suggest it was a self-involved accident, meaning the legislator’s vehicle did not ram an oncoming vehicle or one headed the same direction.
Prengei was rushed to Nakuru War Memorial Hospital, where he died while undergoing treatment.
Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka said Prengei’s death was a big blow to the Senate and Kenya’s leadership.
The deceased was nominated to the Senate by Jubilee Party in 2017.
Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui eulogised Prengei as a “dynamic and dedicated servant of the people”.
“He represented the Ogiek Community in Senate and was a beacon of hope to many. His elevation to the Senate was a major recognition to the rights of the Ogiek and other minority communities. He was a quiet and humble leader, always conscious of the huge burden he carried,” said Kinyanjui.
