My fellow countrymen and women, please accept our deepest gratitude for the immense concern you have shown following our accident in Nakuru yesterday. My wife and I, and indeed our entire family, are profoundly touched by your messages of goodwill and prayers for quick recovery.
I’m particularly grateful to President Uhuru Kenyatta on whose instructions we were airlifted to Nairobi for further treatment.
After thorough investigations, the doctors have confirmed that we suffered only minor injuries and are fine. We’re also touched by the goodwill messages from Deputy President William Ruto and Hon. Raila Odinga who has this morning visited and prayed with us.
The Inspector-General of Police has this morning assured me that Mr Kigen, the driver of the other vehicle who suffered more serious injuries than we did, is in a stable condition. We’re praying for him and will do anything we can to assist with his treatment. May honour and glory be to God.
May I take this opportunity to wish all Kenyans a restful season. Those of you who will be travelling, please take extra care.
God bless Kenya.
Hon. David K. Maraga, EGH,
Chief Justice and President of the Supreme Court of Kenya
