Ken Okoth will be remembered as a strong and courageous leader. He has been an inspiration to so many people especially for his battle against Cancer. At Radio Victoria we are condoling with his family, friends and the residents of Kibra.
We will remember him for these remarkable words that he lived by, “Never Give Up! Kibra Member of Parliament, Educator, Humanist, Cancer Warrior, Builder.”
Despite his condition, he was optimistic about life and even laid out New Year goals.
Leaders from all over the country also mourned his death;
“I’m deeply saddened by the passing of our MP Hon. Okoth Ken battled Cancer with unique bravery while serving his voters to the last minutes of his life. May God grant peace and strength to his family and may he Rest In Peace.” Raila Odinga.
