In a past Interview, Okoth revealed: “The fear of the unknown that accompanies a cancer diagnosis is immense. Cancer changes your life completely.”

Hon. Ken Okoth has been championing for the Legalization of Medical Marijuana & I believe he is one of the Best MPs Kenya has had. He can't just wake up one day & say something he has no Idea about. He's currently battling cancer & I wish him quick recovery. Hope it's legalized.
