Kenyans have continued to empathise with Kibra Member of Parliament Ken Okoth who is battling stage four colorectal cancer.
Okoth has come out publicly to state his condition and on Tuesday shared a heartbreaking photo where revealed how chemotherapy was affecting him.
"Napambana na hali yangu kabisa (I'm still fighting my condition). Chemo drugs brutal on the skin and immune system," he tweeted.
Colorectal cancer, which develops from both the colon and rectum, has also seen the legislator develop metastasis disease of the liver.
Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) director of communications Philip Etale is among leaders who have sent messages of hope and encouragement to the ailing MP.
On Thursday, Etale made a touching prayer for Okoth and other patients battling various ailments where he asked God to heal and relieve the pain.
"Heavenly Father, I come before You this morning thanking You for creating us in Your own image and liking. Dear Lord, You have all authority and power to diminish tumour growths, to destroy cancer cells, to restore and heal each amazing part of our human bodies.
"Father, we call upon You now to come and heal this cancerous growth, to holt this invasion of the body in the name of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lord, our healer and redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen," the ODM spokesperson tweeted the prayer.
