On the mend: Ken Okoth’s latest public appearance

Kibra MP Ken Okoth has been pictured in high spirits on the sidelines of the 206th Unesco Executive Board meeting in Paris, France.

Okoth joined the Kenyan delegation to Unesco and had a discussion about education in Kibra constituency with the permanent secretary Early Learning and Basic Education, Dr Belio Kipsang.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs Twitter account shared photos of all smiley Okoth, a sharp contrast from the photo he had shared last month on how chemo drugs had affected his skin.

Two days earlier, Okoth had to clarify that he is still alive after a blogger spread fake news on Twitter.
