Jubilee nominated MP David Ole Sankok is once again in the headlines after he has been taken to court by his former driver.
Just this week, Murang’a Women Representative Sabina Chege and nominated MP David Ole Sankok decided to exchange some bitter words. This came to be after David Ole Sankok made some remarks saying how according to the two-thirds gender rule, it may lead to slay queens making their way to Parliament.
Now, the driver has taken him to court after he inappropriately fired him. They were in Milimani Commercial Court where Senior Principal Magistrate Addah Obura was the ruling judge. According to the driver’s lawyer, the firing was inappropriate and had no grounds.
“My client neither received a letter of termination nor reasons for withdrawal of his services and consequential benefits contrary to clause five of their contract. The defendant has repelled all efforts to settle the matter out of court,” Lempaa added.
“Following the dismissal of Kapaya as my driver, I entered into a new contract with Konene as his replacement. I had to pay him using my own money,” he stated.
The judge made her ruling. Sankok was ordered to pay the driver a monthly Kes 40,000 which is half his salary.
“I have ordered the defendant pays the complainant his half salary pending determination of this matter. I also order this matter be referred for arbitration as per clause nine of the contract of employment between the parties,” ruled Obura.
