Ailing Kibra MP Ken Okoth was all smiles Sunday following a visit by Nairobi women representative Esther Passaris in France.
In photos shared on social media by Ms Passaris, the 41-year-old Kibera lawmaker was accompanied by his wife Monica. The trio posed for the pictures at the Eiffel Tower, with Mr Okoth looking healthier as he battles colorectal cancer.
“Thank you Mheshimiwa for making time for my visit today. I know you can’t wait to return and get back in the saddle. We are all praying and rooting for you,” Passaris tweeted.
Kenyans on Twitter sent an outpouring of well-wishes and messages of encouragement for the cancer warrior.
The pictures also gave Kenyans a rare glimpse of Ken Okoth’s wife Monica, whom they only knew is foreign.
Monica, who is also seen smiling for the camera in the pictures, has been taking care of her husband as he undergoes treatment abroad.
