In February this year, the lawmaker opened up on his battle with cancer and revealed that it was diagnosed a bit too late.
â€œI was diagnosed with stage four colorectal cancer with metastases to the liver,â€ he told the Standard.
This diagnosis, however, was not easy to come by. For over a year, he presented symptoms of ulcers, at times bacterial infections and that is what he was being treated for.
He was even put on drugs to manage stress. Okoth says that all that time, he was battlingÂ abdominal pain and weight loss.
By the time his doctor ordered some advanced scans, the cancer was found at stage four. It was shocking news to his family.
