Cabinet Secretary Raphael Tuju has revealed that he is a lucky man after a narrow escape from death following his February 2020 road accident.

Following his recovery, CS Tuju revealed that he is venturing into a new initiative - a 50-kilometre charity walk slated for June this year.

The Jubilee party Secretary-General revealed that the proceeds from the charity walk would go toward purchasing medical equipment for the Kijabe Hospital.

Tuju noted that he is currently walking 10-20 kilometers every week in preparation for the main event.

In one of his initial media appearances following the accident, CS Tuju conveyed that he had feared being paralyzed for the rest of his life.

The former Rarieda MP said the broken ribs posed a lot of pain, saying he would not wish on his worst enemy.

The injuries had also caused internal bleeding, which saw him lose a lot of blood and subsequently shed off a lot of weight.
