Kenyans were earlier today sent into panic mood following unverified reports alleging death of Kibera’s MP Ken Okoth . The 41-year-old legislator was diagnosed with stage four colorectal cancer after several hospital visits.
The late Kibra Member of Parliament, Hon Ken Okoth, was a dedicated servant of the people.
REST IN PEACE?!

Is it true that Kibra Mp Ken Okoth is dead?

The rumor has however been disputed with confirmation that the MP is perfectly healthy.
“I’m alive and kicking. Folks should stop killing me before my time with rumors,” the lawmaker responded to the claims.
Okoth is in France where he is undergoing treatment. Even as such, the MP is not hospitalized and not in any danger whatsoever.
He had in February opened up about his battle with cancer while exuding confidence that he will pull through.
