Deputy President William Ruto has sent a message of condolence to the family, friends and relatives of nominated Senator Victor Prengei, who succumbed to injuries following a road accident at Kaptembwa on the Nairobi-Nakuru highway.

DP Ruto Eulogized Prengei has a distinguished public servant who was committed to the advancement of the Minority’s cause.

“Our country has lost a great gentleman. Senator Victor Prengei was modest yet a distinguished public servant with firm commitment to the advancement of the Minority’s cause. He was progressive and full of ground-breaking thoughts that transformed the lives of many people. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, their loved ones, the Ogieks and our Parliament. Rest In Peace, Mheshimiwa Prengei” reads a tweet from DP Ruto.

The late Jubilee Senator was part of the political faction allied to Deputy President William Ruto, the Tanga Tanga team.
