A 46-year-old man who claimed to be a son to the long-serving politician and former Minister William ole Ntimama’s caused drama after being denied access to his father’s burial ceremony.
George Njoroge had earlier sued to stop the burial of the veteran Maasai leader claiming Mr. Ntimama had left and his mother to take care of him single-handedly.
He said he was born in 1968 but only learnt about his father’s whereabouts in 1998 after pressurizing his mother to tell him who his father was because many people kept telling him that he resembled Mr. Ntimama.
Mr. Njoroge wanted the court to issue orders barring the Kilimani Police Station from releasing Mr. Ntimama’s burial permit.
But having failed in his attempt he vowed he would attend his father’s burial, and true to his word he showed up ready to face the music.
“Tomorrow I will sit at the family chairs if they want to kill me let them kill me. I will then head to Narok for the burial,” Njoroge had said on Tuesday.
But on Wednesday the man was denied access to Ole Ntimama’s burial venue in Narok County. George Njoroge Ntimama lamented of being excluded from sitting in the family tent during the funeral held at the late Ntimama’s residency in Motonyi.
Asked why he had to wait for such long time, he claimed he was reluctant to come out openly earlier because he feared people would criticise him.
