DCI detectives seize Nominated MP Sankok’s gun for ballistic examination

  • An autopsy conducted on the body revealed the cause of Memusi’s death was a gunshot to the chin that exited through the head.
  • Detectives will be seeking to establish whether the bullet head recovered at the scene was shot from the firearm.
  • They will also be keen to match the fingerprints on the trigger of the shot gun to the deceased.

Detectives probing the death of Memusi Sankok, son to Nominated Member of Parliament David Sankok, have forwarded the firearm alleged to have been used by the 15-year-old to take his own life for ballistic examination at the DCI forensics lab.

This as an autopsy conducted on the body revealed the cause of Memusi’s death was a gunshot to the chin that exited through the head.

Detectives will be seeking to establish whether the bullet head recovered at the scene was shot from the firearm; they will also be keen to match the fingerprints on the trigger of the shot gun to the deceased.

It also baffled them how a 15-year-old could operate the rifle.

Narok County DCI boss Mwenda Ethabia confirmed interrogating 10 people including Nominated MP Sankok, his wife and daughter, as well as staffers at his hotel who were present at or around his home at the time of the incident.

It is alleged that the legislator differed with the son over his delay to report back to school before a verbal altercation between them.

His son, who was angry at the time, is suspected to have accessed the shot gun in a safe before taking his own life.

Detectives are also investigating how the 15-year-old accessed his father's safe; if found to have failed to secure the safe, Sankok could lose his firearm licence.
