Former Mt Elgon Member of Parliament John Serut is dead.
Serut died at The Nairobi Hospital on Wednesday after battling cancer since 2017, his family has confirmed.
Notably, the ex-legislator's daughter Michelle Serut appealed for help in October 2021 after the family failed to raise Ksh6 million medical fee.
"Hey guys, so a lot of you don’t know me but I’m here requesting your help today.
"My father’s name is John Serut and he’s been unwell for a while now. He was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in January of 2020.
"Since then, we’ve had medical bills totaling to about 20 million," Michelle posted on her Twitter handle on October 12, 2021.
She said the family had tried to settle the bill but had reached their limits, resorting to appeal for help from wellwishers.
"Our most recent bill was slightly over five million and we need the amount on top to cater for an insurance cover as we have exhausted the existing one due to bills amounting to 14 million this year alone," she added.
