NTV’s Richard Chacha is paralysed!

Thursday, 6th June 2012 - Word on the street has it that NTV's senior political reporter is paralysed from waist downwards.  For a while now, Chacha has been admitted at the Nairobi Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit.

This follows a tragic accident that he was involved in near Rift Valley’s Mai Mahiu town in the company of  Emmanuel Taalam, Linus Kaikai, NMG’s Ephantus Mwangi and Frida Kirema.

The journalists are said to have been headed to NTV’s Managing Editor Linus Kaikai’s hometown for a fundraiser in Kilgoris County. Apparently, the vehicle they were all travelling in had a tyre burst thus rolling severally on the ground.  

The impact of the accident left Richard unconscious. He sustained grave head injuries and his legs were seriously wounded. Immediately, Chacha, China Central TV (CCTV)’s Editor Emmanuel Talam and Linus Kaikai were airlifted to Nairobi .
Frida and Ephantus were taken by road as their injuries were not as severe. The Prime Minister paid Chacha a visit at the Nairobi hospital depicting their close relationship. Linus was among the first to be discharged from hospital. 

Our sources claim that he was shocked beyond belief when he tried moving his legs but they could not bulge. He claimed that he couldn’t feel them at all. Tears rolled down his face when he realize it may take time to walk again or never and though his close friends tried consoling him with positive messages, this is the saddest fact Chacha has had to face.

The Kenyan DAILY POST wishes him a quick recovery.
