A section of top clergy and political class in Narok have joined in mourning the late Dorcas Ntimama, wife to the Former Heritage Cabinet Minister and Maa spokesperson late William Ole Ntimama.
Speaking in Narok town, the Anglican Church of Kenya (ACK) Arch-Bishop Dr. Jackson Ole Sapit conveyed his heart-felt condolences to the family describing the deceased as a reconciliator.
Sapit pointed out that the humility of late Mrs Ntimama always steered the late Ntimama to embrace humility whenever emotions were high, hence calling on Narok residents to embrace the character of the fallen heroine.
The Anglican Church leader recalled how the late was famous for carrying her yellow hymn book and loved singing praises to God until her last breath.
“We will miss her humility and service to God. She loved singing the hymn songs and had a strong faith in God until her last breath,” said the Church leader.
Narok Pastor’s Fellowship Chairperson Dr. Peter Nakola revealed that the late Mrs Ntimama had assigned him and Dr. Ole Sapit through a written will to oversee the peace in her family.
The sentiments were shared by Narok West Member of Parliament Gabriel Tongoyo who condoled with the family describing the late as a hero of peace especially on occasions where unrest would be witnessed in the County.
The late Mrs Ntimama passed on while undergoing treatment at a Nairobi hospital on Friday night at the age of 84 years.
President Uhuru Kenyatta and Former Prime Minister Raila Odinga have equally sent their messages of condolence describing the late as a contrite leader and a bedrock of the late Ntimama’s politics who fought for the rights of girls in Narok respectively.
On the 22nd of February 2020, the late led her family in hosting the former President during the official renaming of Narok stadium to William Ole Ntimama by the County Government, an event that was inaugurated by Cabinet Secretary in charge of Sports, Culture and Heritage Ambassador Amina Mohamed.
Top dignitaries and many mourners are expected to attend the send-off with burial plans underway at her Motony home in Narok North Constituency.
Ntimama who died five years ago has left a void in leadership as the Maa community still seeks to find a favored spokesperson with the family’s second born son Timothy Tempes having been crowned to take over leadership mantle from where his father left.
