A son of nominated MP David Sankok has reportedly died by suicide at their home in Ewaso Nyiro, Narok South sub-county.
Memusi Sankok,15, shot himself using his father’s pistol on Monday afternoon after taking it from a safe in his father’s bathroom.
The younger Sankok was a Form Four student at Kericho High School.
What prompted the boy to take the action has not been established yet and a probe is underway.
The pistol used by the legislator’s son has since been seized by the officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) for ballistic assessment.
Confirming the incident, Narok South Sub-County Deputy County Commissioner (DCC) Felix Kisalu said that DCI officers are investigating the incident.
The body of the deceased has since been moved to Narok County Referral Hospital
