Nominated Member of Parliament David Ole Sankok has allegedly been summoned to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) headquarters along Kiambu Road opposite Karura Forest in Kiambu County.
According to controversial blogger-cum politician Robert Alai, the lawmaker was negligent since his son shot himself death using a gun that had been left unattended to in his father's room.
Alai argues that people who have firearms must be held to higher standards of responsibilities.
"MP Sankok summoned to DCI HQ. He should be charged with causing death through negligence. He should have secured his weapons. People who have firearms must be held to higher standards of responsibilities," Alai tweeted this morning.
Sankok's son died on Monday afternoon, May 2 after allegedly shooting himself in the head using his father's gun.
The 15-year-old high school student was supposed to join Form Three at Kericho High School after schools opened on April 25.
Police were on Monday investigating the source of the pistol said to belong to the MP and how the boy accessed it.
The incident is said to have occurred after Sankok and his son had an altercation over his academic performance.
Police said they were investigating how Sankok’s son accessed the legislator’s firearm which had been locked inside a safe in the house.
Preliminary reports indicate that the Nominated MP confronted his son after he failed to report back to school.
