Popular Citizen TV news anchor Jeff Koinange will rename a library facility at Mbagathi Girls to Ken Okoth Library in honour of the late legislator.
Okoth succumbed to colorectal cancer on Friday evening at Nairobi Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
In his tribute on Twitter, Koinange revealed that together with the legislator they were about to launch the library named “Jeff Koinange Library” at the state of art school which was built from scratch using Constituency Development Funds (CDF) from Kibra in 2018.
