PHOTOS: Westlands MP is the latest friend from Kenya to visit cancer warrior Ken Okoth

Westlands MP Timothy Wanyonyi Wetangula is the latest Kenyan to pay a visit to Kibera MP and colon cancer warrior Ken Okoth in Paris, France.

Mr Wanyonyi posted a photo of the two all smiley and captioned it:

Sometimes we simply need to be there for others. Not to fix anything in particular, but to let them feel cared for and supported. Glad to have brought you some warmth. By the grace of God you, , will be back home soon.

In the photo, Ken Okoth is soldiering on, putting on a brave face even as he looks more frail than the previous photos he has posted and has shed some hair.

Ken Okoth was grateful for the visit, saying he had been feeling homesick and the visit by Mr Wanyonyi cheered up his weekend

Thank you my big brother and mentor for dedicating this Easter weekend to cheer me up and keep me company. Was feeling homesick. You brought a sense of home to me with your visit. God bless.

The last time Ken Okoth photos with Kenyans visiting him was at the start of April. He made a public appearance at the sidelines of UNESCO Executive Board meeting at Paris in France.
