Kibra MP Ken Okoth is dead.
He was rushed to Nairobi Hospital’s ICU on Thursday night after multiple organ failure.
Two weeks ago, Okoth made his first official appearance to the public after being away in France for five months seeking treatment for colorectal cancer.
He had attended the Kibra Music Fest at Moi Girls School, Nairobi.
In March, Okoth told Kenyans that he was managing stage four colorectal cancer and will survive.
Okoth, 41, is serving his second term.
He showed confidence that he will overcome ‘the monster’ in a Twitter reply to Benjie Wambui who had asked how he was doing.
“How are you Mheshimiwa? I am praying for you today,” Wambui had posted.
Okoth responded, “Napambana na hali yangu (I’m managing my condition) and we shall overcome.”
“Chemo drugs are brutal on the skin and immune system,” Okoth said.
