Narok Stadium has been officially renamed William Ole Ntimama Stadium.

This is in honour of the late veteran politician and former powerful Cabinet minister from Maasailand.

Ntimama served as chairman of Narok County Council for 15 years and as and MP and minister for 25 years.

The stadium renamed after him was the venue of a Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rally led by Odinga.

The late Ntimama was a staunch supporter of the then ruling party Kanu, prior to the adoption of the multiparty politics in Kenya in 1990.

He was initially vocal against multiparty politics like many other diehard Kanu supporters of that time.
