Passaris warms hearts with photos of cheerful Ken Okoth

Nairobi County Women Representative Esther Passaris has shared photos of the recovering Kibra Member of Parliament, Kenneth Okoth, in Paris.

Passaris shared the pictures on her Twitter handle on Sunday showing the two of them with the MP’s wife Monica at the Eiffel Tower.

Okoth, who has been openly battling Colorectal Cancer, looked healthy, energetic and with a cheerful smile.

Okoth revealed his cancer diagnosis in February 2019, saying the condition was discovered at a very advanced stage, thus it can only be managed.

About a week ago, a number of legislators, led by Eldas Member of Parliament, Adan Keynan visited the Okoth in France.

The pictures have elicited a lot of joy from the online community, where Kenyans sent out their messages of love and encouragement to the MP.

“Thanks Hon. Passaris for making time to visit the Okoths… We can’t wait to see you back home soon Hon. Okoth,” @hakimorara tweeted.

“He looks better. We pray for his complete healing. Kenya needs his exemplary leadership,”posted @jacktonegram

“Quick recovery @okothkenneth and thanks a million @EstherPassaris for taking your time and resources to visit our super MP. May the Lord restore his health and come back to serve the people of Kibra. God bless,” commented @wesley_ombaye
