"In closing, allow me to mention a great son of Kenya, the Member of Parliament for Kibra Constituency Mheshimiwa Ken Okoth who has recently returned to the country after months of treatment in France.

"In the true Kenyan spirit of resilience, Mheshimiwa Okoth has shown immense courage in his fight against cancer. The Honorable Okoth's determination to defeat the disease is an inspiration to many Kenyans.

"As we wish Mheshimiwa quick recovery, we ask the country to support fellow Kenyans affected by cancer," the spokesperson stated.

Ms Mararo also briefed members of the press on President Uhuru Kenyatta's past and upcoming engagements including a scheduled three-day official visit by Botswana President  Eric Mokgweetsi Masisi next Monday.
