From People Daily’s Street Talk
A Rift Valley governor must have had it with his “bothersome’’ voters and has worked out a way of moving around his county incognito.
The man, who is on the spot for allegedly sleeping on the job, has been moving around in an ambulance!
What’s more, the governor’s aides switch on the siren in areas they encounter hostility in order to escape.
Sankok to quit politics
On Wednesday, nominated MP David Ole Sankok shocked Kenyans when he announced that he is quitting politics.
Appearing on K24 This Morning show, Ole Sankok said politics has drained his pockets, since many Kenyans demand freebies from him and fellow politicians.
“I was economically very comfortable before I became [a] Member of Parliament and I have ever regretted becoming an MP,” said the lawmaker.
This is despite earning more than Sh1 million monthly and enjoying a raft of benefits and allowances, including a car grant, car maintenance and travel perks.
Ole Sankok, who is also the chairman of the National Council for Persons With Disabilities, said he will not vie for any seat in the 2022 General Election.
The MP faulted Kenyans for making lawmakers feel indebted to them, saying they demand and expect too many freebies from politicians.
