Sonko’s shocking cancer data on MPs-VIDEO

Published

on

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Monday disclosed that more than 60 Kenyan MPs are currently battling cancer.

“Cancer is a serious disease. The reports we have now indicate that there are over 60 MPs with cancer… As leaders, we need to strategize on the way forward and how we will deal with the disease,” said Governor Sonko.

He made the disclosure while addressing journalists at Lee Funeral Home in Nairobi following the death of Bomet Governor Dr Joyce Laboso on Monday.

Kenya has lost two leaders to cancer in less than a week. Kibra MP Ken Okoth died last Friday and Bomet Governor Joyce Laboso died on Monday.

Last year, Juja MP Francis Munyua Waititu, who was successfully treated for brain cancer in India, said he met nine Kenyan MPs and four Senators in the Asian country, who were equally seeking treatment for the deadly disease.

TIME TO TALK

Speaking to the Standard, the MP said the number of Kenyans suffering from the killer disease is alarming and it is time to talk about it boldly.

“The situation is serious. We have for example about 63 MPs and thousands of other Kenyans suffering from cancer. We must get out and talk about it boldly,” he said.

“I met hundreds of cancer patients from Kenya alone. Among them were nine of my fellow MPs and four Senators. The cancer scourge is enormous and we can no longer afford to bury our heads in the sand. We must get out and talk about it,” he said.

He disclosed that he personally spent Sh1.8 million on housing alone for the period he was there.

“How many Kenyans can afford that?” he posed.

40,000 Kenyans are diagnosed with cancer annually, while at least 15,000 people die of cancer every year, according to the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics.

State House dismisses claims of rift between Uhuru, Ruto

Published

on

State House has denied claims that there was a growing rift between President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto, a day after the Head of State lashed out at his critics.

State House Spokesperson Kanze Dena said a series of misleading narratives have been propagated through the mainstream and social media to create an impression that the duo was no longer seeing eye to eye.

On Wednesday, Uhuru seemed to lose his cool when he dismissed critics of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) task force report, saying they were directionless individuals who criticised the document even before it was released.

Dr Ruto and his allies had been leading attacks against the BBI report long before the document was launched only to make a U-turn after its launch.

“Even before we released the report, they were all over telling us about its contents. Now it has been released and they have taken us along a new direction,” the president was quoted saying in Gatundu North Sub-county on Thursday

.But yesterday, Ms Dena was quick to dismiss claims of a simmering rift between the two.She cited a recent photo where Ruto was seen standing outside the holding room during the BBI report launch, which created a sensation online that the DP had been locked out of Uhuru’s meeting
