The family of the former Cabinet Minister, the Late William Ole Ntimama, wants politicians who will be attending the burial of Dorcas Ntimama, wife of the late Minister, to shun politics.
Led by Lydia Ntimama, the family said they expect politicians from different political alignments to be among the mourners who will attend the burial, hence the need to keep-off from political utterances that day.
“My mother was a prayerful person, hence there is no need of spoiling her burial with too much politics. We need to give her a decent send-off that she deserves,” said Ms Ntimama.
Lydia, the daughter of the late Ntimama also called on the mourners to follow strict Covid-19 regulations during the burial ceremony, that will be conducted on 10th July 2021 at Motony village in Narok North Sub- County.
Dorcas passed on last Friday 25 June 2021, at the age of 85, while undergoing treatment at a Nairobi hospital.
She reiterated that her mother was a great pillar to her late father who was famous for his passion in fighting for the rights of the Maa people.
“Behind every successful man, there is a woman. My mother was a great pillar to my father during his active days in politics. She was indeed the backbone of my father’s success,” she said.
My mother, she said, was a prayerful person who dedicated most of her time to praying for the nation, her husband, family and the Maa community.
“Since my father passed on in the year 2016, my mother remained a great pillar of our family and encouraged us to keep peace with everyone. We will surely miss her,” said her daughter.
Since her death, various leaders have been flocking the homestead to give their condolences among them Narok Governor, Samuel Tunai and Senator Ledama Ole Kina.
