Jubilee politician announces his retirement from politics in 2022

David Ole Sankok, Jubilee’s nominated MP, has announced his retirement from politics come 2022. Sankok represents the minority and people with special needs in Parliament.

According to the vocal politician, he is retiring so that other disabled leaders can also get the chance to lead. He further explained that he had done his best during his five-year tenure in Parliament.

“I have served well, and I have tabled enough bills in Parliament. I have also supported crucial bills such as the Gender Bill, which brought about the two-third rule; I have spoken severally, and some MPs will take 100 years to achieve what I achieved in five years,” Sankok said.

He noted that he also brought about the sign language interpreter during his tenure as the National Council of Persons with Disabilities chairperson.

Ranked one of the best serving MPs.

A survey by Mzalendo ranked Sankok as one of the best performing MPs in Parliament in 2019. However, some parliamentarians came out opposing the results. According to them, they were busy working in their constituencies when the survey took place.

However, Sankok bashed them in an interview with NTV, claiming they should not lie to Kenyans.

“We have three arms of government, Judiciary, Parliament, and Executive. In Parliament, we have three roles to play, oversight, representation, and legislative. Building roads and supplying electricity is the role of the Executive and President Uhuru Kenyatta. Don’t lie to Kenyans.”

The vocal Jubilee leader further defending himself, claiming that disabled Kenyans may amount to a broader constituency. He also noted that their issues are varied.

Sankok revealed during an interview with K24 that he was aiming at the United Nations to represent people with disabilities.

“I will probably go to the United Nations as a special adviser for issues to do with disability. I will contribute more there.”
