Throughout the ceremony, Sankok, who dressed in a black suit, away from usual green attire, shed tears throughout the ceremony. He did not speak in the entire function.

Senator Murkomen, who conveyed Deputy President, William Ruto, condolences message, lauded Sankok for being a strong supporter of UDA and standing firmly with what he believes in.

“The Deputy President could not make it to be here with us today because of the serious national issues he is attending to at his home in Karen. The whole country is waiting to hear him name his running mate, hence the reason why he did not come here with us today,” he said.

Governor Sang’ called on the government to do professional investigations on what transpired on the day the teenage boy died but should also be careful not to cause more harm to the family that is in mourning state.

“You are the greatest supporters and pillars of Kenya Kwanza and we thank you because you have done a wonderful job,” said Sang.

Ngeno called on the Ministry of Education, to investigate the rampant incidents of suicide among children, saying hardly will a week end without an incident being reported in the country.

“We have seen a trend of teenagers committing suicide country wide. It is time the Ministry of Education takes time to analyze the reasons behind the things we are seeing,” reiterated Ngeno.

The 15 year old boy who was a student at Kericho High School, allegedly shot himself using his father’s shotgun at their home in Ewaso Ngiro, after they allegedly differed with the father on reporting back to school.

Detectives from the Department of Criminal investigations have visited the home on several occasions, in an effort to unearth the cause of death.
