Nominated member of parliament David Ole Sankok buried his deceased son Memusi in a lonely thicket in Narok on Saturday evening.
One would have expected Ole Sankok to bury the son at his home but that did not happen because of a number of reasons.
According to sources, the Form 2 boy was buried at a deserted bushy place called Esupetai on the way to Maasai Mara game reserve after the father was stopped from burying him in his land. This came in the wake of a directive by KENHA saying his home was built on a road reserve.
As a result, the letter from KENHA objected any attempts by Sankok to bury the young one at home, leaving Kenyans wondering if the nominated senator really has a place called home.
Interestingly, KENHA did not object late last year when Sankok dug a small grave near his palatial home and buried photos of Raila and Mohammed Junet in a mock burial event. The mock ceremony left Kenyans shocked with others wondering why the MP was wishing for a burial event at his home.
At the same time, Sankok was left a lonely man as most of the United Democratic Alliance leadership led by deputy president William Ruto gave the burial a wide berth. Only Governor Sang, Senator Murkomen, MP Ntutu and governor Tunai attended.
Majority of the leaders were at Ruto’s Karen home to select a runningmate which did not bear any fruits the whole of yesterday.
Memusi Sankok recently died under mysterious circumstances. According to reports, he died from a gunshot but it remains unclear whether he shot himself or whether he was shot by someone else.
An earlier statement recorded by the family revealed inconsistencies and Sankok has so far been ordered to go and record a fresh statement. The crime scene was also interfered with according to the Narok based detectives.
