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
#Kenyan warmth. By the grace of God you, @okothkenneth, 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
@HonTimWanyonyi 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.

He took photos with education PS Dr Belio Kipsang and former Labour CS and the current permanent representative to UNESCO Amb Phylis Kandie.
Mr Okoth has also rubbished claims that he was dead after someone on Twitter posted a message announcing the death of the Kibra MP.
Okoth has been battling colon cancer and has been posting photos of his progress as well as photos of friends from Kenya visiting him
