According to Dr. David Sankok, becoming a lawmaker has left him poorer than he was before the year 2017.
In his opinion, “the fastest way to become poor in Kenya is to become a Member of Parliament or Member of County Assembly.”
Dr. Sankok, who is also the former chairman of the National Council of People with Disabilities further noted that “Politics in Kenya is very hard”.
Per a report by Pulse.com.gh, he explained that politics is a very dirty game as everyone thinks they own you.
He added that though there are several state officers, only politicians are asked to offer assistance to people.
He admits that he is not used to giving out free things and it is very hard to give out something you have worked hard for.
Dr. Sankok went on to say that he is a disabled person and has struggled in life.
He stated that he represents 6.5 million people and even if he decides to give each one something, he would need more money to execute developmental projects.
Although he is still a Member of Parliament, he has no intention to contest the next election.
