Friday, July 26, 2019 - Kenyans have taken to social media to pay tribute to Kibra MP, Ken Okoth, who passed away on Friday at the Nairobi Hospital.

Okoth was battling colorectal cancer and had just returned to the country after spending five months in France receiving treatment.

According to a family spokesman, the legislator was rushed to Nairobi Hospital and admitted at the facility’s ICU on Thursday night.

His condition did not improve and he passed on Friday evening due to multiple organ failure.

"He had been unwell and came to Nairobi Hospital yesterday. He was admitted at around 5pm but his health deteriorated and he was taken to the ICU at around 8pm until at around 4pm when he passed on," a family spokesman said.

He was 41 at time of his death.

Okoth was a cut above the rest as the number of projects he initiated in Kibra attest.

His death is not only a big blow to the people of Kibra to Kenyans at large since he was a youthful leader with a lot to offer.
