What DCI Found At Sankok House Leading To Further Investigations For His Son’s Death Causing Uproar
Detectives drawn from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) have ordered a fresh autopsy on nominated MP David Sankok’s son, Memusi Sankok, in order to ascertain what exactly led to his death.
This is after an initial autopsy conducted on Tuesday, May 3, at Longisa Hospital in Bomet revealed that Memusi’s demise was caused by a bullet that entered through his chin and exited through his head.
Media reports indicate that detectives probing the matter now want a fresh forensic analysis done by the government pathologist in order to ascertain if the 15-year-old died by suicide or someone else was involved.
The move, according to the burial committee, forced Sankok’s family to suspend the planned Tuesday, May 10, burial to a later date.
“As a committee, we have decided that the burial set for Tuesday will be reviewed hence we will give a comprehensive statement on the date of burial on Monday, May 9,” Narok East Member of Parliament, Ken Aramat, told the media.
The detectives had earlier visited Sankok’s home for a second time over inconsistencies in statements issued by the family in relation to the minor’s death.
Narok County DCI boss, Mwenda Ethaiba, noted that they were investigating a possible second gun involvement in the incident.
This is after preliminary investigations revealed that the initial gun taken for analysis was possibly not used in the incident.
The Narok County police boss noted that a comprehensive report would be released at a later date.
“Unlike other rifles, a shotgun releases pellets. No bullet or cartridge was found,” Ethaiba stated.
with Deputy President William Ruto have also urged Kenyans not to politicise the matter and wait until police investigations are completed.
They blamed the Directorate of Criminal investigation (DCI) for playing politics in Nominated MP David Sankok son’s death.
Memusi Sankok, 15, allegedly shot himself dead with a gun last week.
“We want to ask the agency to be empathetic with this family since they are having a hard time,” Gachagua said.
“Losing a son at this young age is very traumatic. The family has done everything needed…postmoterm has also been done and investigations concluded on cause of death.”
Speaking after condoling with the family of Sankok on Saturday, Gachagua said as much as the investigations were not clear, the DCI should allow the family to mourn their child.
“DCI should give them time and only come back after the burial. Subjecting the family to recording many statements is inhuman,” he said.
“We urge the DCI to exercise understanding and let them bury their child in peace. Let the officers exercise professionalism.”
