Narok - More than 50,000 people are expected to attend the burial of former heritage minister, William ole Ntimama at his Motonyi home on September 14.

Narok burial arrangements committee chairman Hassan ole Kamwaro said the guests are expected from across the country as well as Tanzania, America and Europe.

“Ntimama was respected not only in Kenya but across the borders that is why we are expecting visitors from all over,” said Kamwaro who spoke the journalists at the former MP’s home.

Ntimama died last Thursday in his sleep at his Melili home in Narok County.

He also revealed that a special bull is set to be slaughtered in honour of the fallen Maasai kingpin according to the community culture.

“A respected leader like Ntimama with large herds of cattle and who lived a honourable life is supposed to be celebrated in a special way,” he said.

The chairman noted that the bull will be slaughtered specially for age mates of Ilnyangusi (which Ntimama was part of) and elders will later bless the body before burial.

Kamwaro said they have targeted 100 bulls and 700 sheep and goats to be slaughtered for the visitors.

The former Transport and Licensing Board chairman also noted that the locals have donated 15 bulls and several goats and sheep to the family towards the funeral.

He also said that a requiem mass for the former Narok North MP is expected to be held at the All Saints Cathedral, Nairobi, on September 13.

President Uhuru Kenyatta, Deputy President William Ruto, CORD leader Raila Odinga, Amani coalition leader Musalia Mudavadi, Tanzania opposition leader Edward Lowassa are some of the guests expected at the funeral.
