Kibra MP Kenneth Okoth has passed away today in Nairobi Hospital aged 41. The legislator who has been fighting Colo-rectal cancer for a while now succumbed at around 5 p.m this evening.
Okoth had left the country to seek treatment in France where he stayed for five months and came back just two weeks ago. By the time he was leaving the country to seek treatment, Mr. Okoth had been diagnosed with stage 4 Colo-rectal cancer also known as bowel and colon cancer.
