The last born daughter of the late Maasai kingpin the late William Ole Ntimama is dead. Vivian Ntimama died on Friday following a heart attack.

According to family members, she complained of chest pains on the left side when she collapsed early morning while preparing to go to work.

According to her sister, Lydia Ntimama, it was a shocking incident as she was preparing to go to work in the morning as usual when she collapsed while taking bath.

She said the 40-year-old had complained of chest pains earlier. According to medical reports, she died of heart attack.

“She was the last born in our family, she was hardworking and jovial, we have lost a great person,” she added.

A cousin of the late, Allan Ntimama, on his Facebook account termed the deceased as a loving and caring person who worked closely with members of the public.

“It is saddening to lose a sibling. However, I would urge online users who find out about someone’s death to always hold that information until the family is informed,” advised Lydia.

She was one of Ntimama’s seven children, Lydia, Timothy, Debra, Amos, Caroline, Martha and Drake Ntimama.
