A 60 year old man’s hopes to be identified as a son of fallen Hero former Minister William Ole Ntimama have been dashed by the court.

He wanted the High Court to stop the burial of former minister saying that the deceased is his beloved father.

George Kariuki Njoroge who wants to be referred as George Kariuki Ntimama said that his father had a relationship with his mother Rebecca Ngibia Wanjiku now deceased which relation bore the seed which is him in 1956.

Kariuki said that Ntimama left his mother after she got pregnant.

He wants the court to allow him extract a tissue specimen from the deceased’s body to enable him conduct a DNA test to affirm his claims.

He further wants the court to issue temporary injunctions stopping Kilimani local chief from issuing a burial permit and Lee funeral home from releasing the body for the forthcoming burial.

Kariuki Ntimama told the court that he learnt that he is a son to the former minister in 1998 from his late mother.

“I was very curious to know who my father was, because people kept on telling me that i resembled Ntimama who i only used to see on television,” he said.

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

He said he never talked about the matter for he feared hostility from Ntimama’s immediate family members.

He said he is not decided on whether to attend “his father’s burial” for he is not certain how his extended family will receive him.

He is afraid that if the court hesitates to issue the orders he is seeking, his late father will be buried and he will lose out on his “father’s” property and continue being sidelined.

In a landmark decision delivered by the high court, men who sire children out of wedlock should be allowed to have the surnames of the biological fathers.
