Kibra MP Ken Okoth is back in the country after undergoing several sessions of Chemotherapy in France.
Okoth appeared in public on Saturday during the annual Kibra Music Festival at Moi Girls High School, Nairobi.
He has been away since early this year after he was diagnosed with cancer.
He was accompanied by Westlands MP Timothy Wanyonyi and Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja.
Ken Okoth commended Wanyonyi for visiting him in Paris and for stepping in for him during disbursement of bursaries in his constituency.
He also congratulated his team for ensuring that his programs run and partnerships were maintained.
“Hon Tim Wanyonyi is more than a brother. He came with his family to see me in hospital. I will continue serving my constituents with zeal and commitment.” Okoth said.
Wanyonyi commended Okoth for his brave fight as well as putting up a team that has carried on with his obligations with diligence.
“Okoth and I have the same passion for education. When I visited him in Paris in April, he sent me to assure you of his full recovery. We thank God for his resilience. We commend you for the excellent job you are doing for Kibra,”Wanyonyi said.
Nairobi senator Johnson Sakaja thanked Okoth for the amazing job he has been doing.
“Welcome back home bro,” Sakaja said.
The festival draws performances from Early Childhood Development, Primary and secondary schools with the winners in the various categories feted with trophies and certificates.
Okoth has been undergoing specialized treatment in France for colon cancer and has been away for more than five months.
