Kibra MP Ken Okoth’s Wife, Monica Okoth, on Wednesday, spoke for the first time in public since the passing of her husband.

The widow was speaking at a memorial service held for Okoth at Starehe Boys Centre, where he was an alumnus.

She described her life with the late legislator as incredible adding that they had toured many parts of the world together and they were best friends.

Monica revealed that she had known the MP for 21 years and first came to Kenya 15 years ago, “On my second day in Kenya, Ken brought me to Starehe Boys’ Centre.”
