The son of Lord Delamere, Tom Cholmondeley has denied Wednesday in a Nairobi hospital aged 48 years.

Cholmondeley who was a prominent farmer in Naivasha passed on moments after undergoing a hip replacement surgery at MP Shah Hospital in Nairobi.

He is the son of the 5th Lord Delamere, one of the first and most influential British settlers in Kenya.

In April 2005, Cholmondeley was convicted for shooting and killing a KWS game ranger at his expansive Soysambo ranch near lake Naivasha.

In his defence Tom, claimed he acted out of self-defence, and the murder case was dropped before going to trial.

In May 2006, Tom was involved in another scandal where he shot and killed a poacher at his farm.

He was acquitted of murder, but found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to eight months in prison.

His confinement at Kamiti maximum prison was a blessing in disguise for the inmates detained there.

It is while at Kamiti that he transformed the facility and even offered computer lessons among other courses to fellow inmates who equally grew fond of him.

He was released on October, 2009 after spending six months in jail.
