Lord Delamare's son Tom Cholmondley dies in Nairobi

17 August 2016, 17:44 Dennis Masinde

Nairobi - British aristocrat Tom Cholmondley is dead.

The son of the fifth Lord Delamere, Cholmondley died on Wednesday afternoon at the MP Shah Hospital in Nairobi while receiving treatment.

He had been admitted Tuesday and underwent surgery for a hip replacement.

He died of Cardiac Arrest at 2.15 PM.

" He was admitted on Tuesday as a private patient — that is admitted by visiting doctors — in our facility and he underwent the surgery. He was recovering at the Intensive Care Unit when he developed cardiac arrest and died," a statement from MP Shah Chief Executive Anup Das said Wednesday.

Cholmondley rose to national prominence for the wrong reasons in 2005 after he shot and killed a Kenya Wildlife Service game ranger at his expansive Soysambu ranch near Lake Naivasha.

A year later, he shot dead a herdsman who he accused of trespassing at his farm.

He was jailed in 2009 for 8 months for what was then described as manslaughter.

There was no immediate comment from his family over the death.
