Jubilee nominated Member of Parliament David Ole Sankok has vowed to retire from politics after August 2022 general election if deputy president Dr William Ruto wins in the race for the country's top seat.
Speaking while appearing on TV 47 Kenya Live show on Tuesday morning, Sankok promised to exit peacefully from politics once he was done campaigning successfully for Dr Ruto's ambitions.
The vocal Tangatanga adherent further disclosed that he had, earlier on in 2018, announced the intention of quitting politics voluntarily after the DP succeeds his boss president Uhuru Kenyatta after this year's polls. He noted that he had not changed his mind since then.
"In 2018 I announced that I would retire from politics voluntarily. My mission is to ensure that William Ruto is President, once he is in State House I will peacefully go," said David Sankok.
Sankok is a member of the newly-revamped United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party, and an ardent supporter of Dr Ruto. He hails from Narok county. The embattled ruling party Jubilee nominated him to Parliament in 2017, to represent persons with disabilities.
He is a close friend to the country's second in command and they have worked together in politics for a while. He was among MPs who have ditched Jubilee and joined UDA, following standoff and divisions over 2022 successive politics.
Dr Ruto is one of the frontrunners in the race for State House and he is relying on an absolute support from his allies including Sankok to campaign rigorously for him to emerge victorious.
