NAIROBI, Kenya, Sept 9 — A 60-year-old man has moved to the High Court to stop the burial of the late Cabinet Minister William Ole Ntimama saying that he is his son.
George Njoroge Kariuki aka George Njoroge Ntimama has submitted to the court that the former Minister fathered him in 1956 and later dumped his mother who raised him as a single mum.
He now wants the burial stopped until the matter has been resolved.
Ntimama is set to be buried next week on Wednesday at his Motonyi home, three kilometres from Narok town.
As a former Narok North Member of Parliament, Ntimama was an influential Maasai leader who was widely respected—having been in government and politics for long.
Among his last public appearances was at State House, Nairobi on August 9 when he led a group of Maasai leaders in supporting the Jubilee Party.
