Former Mwingi Central MP Joe Mutambu escaped death narrowly after he was involved in a grisly road accident at Kavenge along the Thika-Mwingi highway on Sunday night.
His official driver died on the spot in the 11 pm crash that involved a tractor.
Mutambu was returning to Nairobi from the scene where the St. Joseph’s Seminary Mwingi bus had plunged into the Enziu River killing at least 32 people on Saturday.
His vehicle was involved rolled several times after crashing into a tractor.
The former MP had in the day joined fellow leaders from Kitui including Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu who had camped at the scene of the school bus accident until the submerged bus was pulled out last evening.
Mutambu and other occupants of the vehicle were rushed to Matuu level four hospital for treatment.
The body of his driver was taken to Mwingi Level Four hospital morgue.
