Last year, Okoth was put through vigorous treatment that involved combined radio and chemotherapy to avert the impending risk of organ failure.

The second-term MP revealed that he lost a lot of weight and had abdominal pains during that time.
He responded well, he says, but that was just the beginning of his long-term treatment. Considering his cancer was discovered at stage four, he will have to take medication for life – a tablet each day.

“I will be using chemotherapy tablets that I can take every morning. Because my disease was discovered at a very advanced stage; it cannot be cured. It can only be managed,” he says.
