After the death of Ken Okoth, Jeff revealed that a library which was bound to be launched at Mbagathi Girls High School was to be named after him.
He, however, declined the gesture named it after the late MP.
“A very SAD day…Ken Okoth was a GREAT man…A FIGHTER…A great LEADER…We were just about to LAUNCH the “Jeff Koinange LIBRARY ” at Mbagathi Girls in Kibra,” wrote Jeff on his Instagram page after news of Okoth’s death broke out.
He further added that: “…In HONOR of Ken, I will rename it “KEN OKOTH LIBRARY”…Rest in Peace Bro…Till we MEET.”
Okoth died on July 26, at the Nairobi Hospital after a long battle with colorectal cancer.
He was lauded for his initiatives in ensuring quality education is given to his constituents by giving students bursaries and investing in major educational infrastructures.
