Sankok disown DP allies

A nominated Member of Parliament has told off a section of Jubilee senators who failed to honour the invitation to attend a party meeting called by President Uhuru Kenyatta at Statehouse.
David Ole Sankok who is nominated under the Jubilee ticket to represent Persons Living with Disability and a strong supporter of Deputy President William Ruto’s presidential ambition chided Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and his Nakuru counterpart Susan Kihika, who were removed from leader of majority and chief whip positions in the Senate respectively for dishonoring their party leader by failing to attend a Senate Parliamentary meeting called by the President.
“It is true I have been supporting the Deputy President’s ambition because he is the only Jubilee leader who had shown interest in vying for presidency in the year 2022, but I want to say I will support anyone nominated by the party to vie for the seat,” said Sankok.
He spoke on Friday in a hotel at Ewaso Nyiro trading center in Narok South Sub County when nominated MP Maina Kamanda paid him a visit.
“Loyalty and respect to the party leader is not negotiable. If our leader calls for a meeting we have to go without question, if I don’t agree with him I will tell him on the face so that we can get an amicable solution,” said Sankok.
Sankok promised to back any post election agreement entered by the party saying this will go a long way in uniting this nation.
“I will be the first to work with anyone who signs a post election agreement with our party. Before I had only one party leader but now that KANU has come in I have two party leaders and two deputies whom I have a duty of respecting,” reiterated Sankok.
Maina Kamanda lauded the President for bringing many parties into the ruling party adding everybody working under the President should be 100 percent loyal to him.
“When you bring people who are loyal to you, you are able to deliver your agenda to the nation. I thank all the senators from Central Kenya who attended the Statehouse meeting because they believe in their president,” said Kamanda.
According to Kamanda, the handshake between the President and opposition leader Raila Odinga has united the nation.
