In a tribute message, Imran wrote;
“The people of Kibra and the people of Kenya lost a great son.
Ken, as he liked to be called, was a visionary leader who left an indelible mark on everyone he interacted with. He believed in everyone and supported them in all their endeavours. One remarkable trait that he had as a leader was that he listened to everyone, even the dissenting voices.
As a family, we still mourn him but we rest assured that he lived a full life and that his legacy continues to live on. Not just in Kenya, but around the world.
He referred to Ken as a human rights champion and an educator.
“The Okoth Family remains forever grateful and indebted to the people of Kenya for the immense support we received last year. We thank the constituents of Kibra for standing by me and allowing me to ensure that the work Ken started in Kibra continues. I shall continue to serve you with diligence.
May God bless each one of you.
