Members of Finance Committee of the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) have visited ailing Kibra MP Ken Okoth in Paris, France.
Okoth, who is suffering from cancer, left the country for France in March and has been undergoing treatment at Gustave Roussy cancer campus, Grand Paris hospital.
In a tweet shared by Aldas MP Adan Keynan on Monday, May 13, the members spent time with the ailing legislator who appeared to be recuperating well.
"In Paris where we visited Kibra MP Okoth Kenneth who is recuperating at Gustave Roussy cancer campus, Grand Paris hospital. Quick recovery Hon. Okoth. You will surely overcome this," tweeted Keynan
Keynan was accompanied by Vihiga Senator George Khaniri and Wajir Women representative Fatuma Gedi among other legislators.
Other leaders who have visited Okoth include Kamukunji MP Yusuf Hassan and his Westlands counterpart Tim Wanyonyi.
The youthful politician touched the hearts of many Kenyans after openly disclosing his cancer and health status in an emotional tweet shared on March 11.
