Kibra Member of Parliament Ken Okoth has responded to rumours being peddled that he is no more

“I'm alive and kicking

Kibra Member of Parliament Ken Okoth has responded to rumours being peddled that he is no more.

The lawmaker took to his Twitter page to dispel the fake news and asked netizens to stop killing him before his time.

“I'm alive and kicking. Folks should stop killing me before my time with rumours,” he said.


In February this year the legislator startled Kenyans when he revealed that he was battling colorectal cancer.

Speaking to the Standard, Okoth admitted the diagnosis came a little too late but he would pull through.

“I was diagnosed with stage four colorectal cancer with metastases to the liver. By the time his doctor ordered some advanced scans, the cancer was found at stage four. It was shocking news to his family.

“The fear of the unknown that accompanies a cancer diagnosis is immense. Cancer changes your life completely,” said Okoth.

The bubbly MP pointed out the only support system became his family, friends and the medical team.

In March, the MP shared his first photo after undergoing chemo and stated that the procedure was affecting his skin but said he would not give up.

“Napambana na hali yangu kabisa. Chemo drugs brutal on the skin and immunity system,” he wrote.
