Detectives have confiscated nominated Member of Parliament David Ole Sankok’s gun for ballistic analysis.
According to the Narok County Criminal Investigations Officer Mwenda Ethaiba, the firearm is under the custody of the Kenya Police Crime laboratory headquarters in Nairobi to further establish if the son of the MP shot himself.
The initial post-mortem results revealed that the young man died of a gunshot inflicted wound as the bullet exited through the upper side of the head.
“I can now confirm that being a matter of public and national interest, we are trying to work round the clock to make sure that this matter is solved as soon as possible,” he said.
Ethaiba intimated that the security apparatus was considering an issue of firearm licensing to confirm if the gun was legally acquired.
Leaders have sent their messages of condolence to the family of nominated MP even as the family continue with burial plans.
Memusi Sankok, 15, died after shooting himself using his father’s pistol. It is alleged that he committed the act after an altercation with his father.
