Chief Justice David Maraga and his wife, Yucabeth Nyaboke, have been airlifted from Nakuru to Nairobi for comprehensive medical attention at Nairobi Hospital.
The two were involved in a road accident along the Nakuru-Eldoret highway on Saturday morning which left them nursing injuries.
The couple were immediately rushed to the War Memorial Hospital Nakuru but have now been airlifted to Nairobi following a presidential directive.
In a brief address to the media at the War Memorial Hospital Nakuru before being taken to Lanet military airstrip to be flown to Nairobi, the Chief Justice said they are both in stable conditions.
Maraga said he suffered head injuries while his wife sustained neck injuries.
The Chief Justice also gave an update of their medical condition via Twitter, while also thanking Kenyans for their prayers and concern.
My wife and I were involved in an accident in Nakuru this morning on our way to Church. We are undergoing medical observation. My driver and aide who were with us are also okay. We thank God for His mercies. Thank you Kenyans for your prayers and concern.
