Nominated senator David Ole Sankok on Saturday paid the last respect to his late son Memusi who recently died under mysterious circumstances.
From the live images shared, one thing which stood out was the absence of major political leaders from the Riftvalley including his party leader deputy president William Samoei Ruto.
According to sources, William Ruto did not attend the burial of Sankok’s son because he was preoccupied with the Kenya Kwanza running mate issue. As a result, it is said that he sent Elgeyo Marakwet senator Kipchumba Murkomen to represent him, with rumors going round that the UDA boss may pass by.
Government Chief Pathologist, Johansen Oduor on Friday said Nominated MP, David Sankok’s son died of a single bullet to the head.
Speaking after the five-hour surgery at the Umash Funeral Home in Nakuru, Johansen Oduor explained that the gun was shot in contact with Memusi’s chin because it left a burn on the chin.
The government pathologist went ahead to reveal that Memusi Sankok died from a shotgun. Prior to his death, the deceased reportedly argued with his father with sources disclosing that he did not want to go to school.
However, the nominated senator insisted that he had to go to school apende asipende but one hour later, the young boy was found dead in a pool of blood.
Thereafter, Sankok and members of his family were taken by the detectives to record statements about the death only for them to record inconsistencies about the death according to the officers.
To make it worse, the detectives expressed their doubts since they believed there was interference with the crime scene. This is because the gun belonging to Sankok was not at the scene at the time of the shooting, contrary to the statement that the legislator recorded earlier.
The nominated senator has so far been ordered by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations to record a fresh statement.
