JB Nyamwaya said..” The late Wilson Ndolo Ayah was a consummate, polished and well read politician and an efficient public manager. I will remember a man who was the MP Kisumu Rural and did not favour Kisumo against Seme and served them both. A man whose projects are seen both in Kadipir and Kagumba. But I will also remember a man who knew that 'telo ikao, telo ok mi ngato'. As we mourn his passing, what legacy does he leave behind for you?”

Okoa Seme said.. "The sorrow of the faithful is not that of permanent loss, but the tender sense of sadness that comes in saying good-bye for now
