Kenyan legislator Ken Okoth dies aged 41

Kenyan city legislator Ken Okoth has died at a Nairobi hospital after a long battle with colon cancer, the National Assembly said on Friday.

The Kibra Member of Parliament had been admitted at The Nairobi Hospital on Thursday where he was put on life support machines after his condition deteriorated, Okoth's brother Imran Okoth confirmed.

His body has been moved to Lee Funeral Home in the capital. Earlier this year, Mr Okoth, 41, revealed that he had been diagnosed with advanced colorectal cancer.

He travelled to Europe soon after where he was receiving treatment for five months. May his soul rest in peace.
