Nominated MP Ole Sankok
It is being reported that tragedy has befallen Ole Sankok's family. Journalist turned lawyer Wahome Thuku has posted that Sankok's son has fatally shot himself using his father's firearm. The incident has reportedly happened in the nominated MP's home in Narok.
The son is reported to be a finalist student at Maseno High School. Thuku has said that the incident happened while the father was away from home. It is not clear how the boy accessed his father's sidearm. As per law, licenced firearm holders are supposed to keep guns out of reach from any unlicensed holder. It is also expected any weapon should not be within the reach of children.
Wahome has reported that DCI are swarming the area collecting forensic evidence to start investigation. Any incident involving a weapon must be investigated to ascertain if it's suicide or homicide. Wahome has said that there was reported disagreements between father and son concerning the laters academic performance. Godspeed t
o the family of Sankok. It is never easy to lose a child.
