BY JOAN WANJIKU,NAIROBI,19TH NOV 2020-A high Court in Nairobi has temporarily halted the burial of the late Matungu Member of Parliament Justus Murunga pending the hearing of an application by Agnes Wangui who claims to have been his mistress.
In court papers seen by Citizen Digital, Ms Wangui claims that she had two children with the first-time MP.
Through her lawyer Danstan Omari, Ms Wangui claims that the MPs family has excluded her from the burial plans and is worried that her kids will be left out of their father’s estate.
She wants the family to recognize her and the two kids so that they can be allowed to attend his final send off.
The court has now barred the family of the late MP from conducting any funeral rites until a DNA test is conducted to ascertain the paternity of Ms Wangui’s two children.
The matter will be heard before the court on November 26.
The legislator collapsed at his home on Saturday while in the company of his bodyguard and a domestic worker.
He had complained of breathing difficulties while inspecting construction works at his village home.
He would later succumb while he was being rushed to the St. Mary’s hospital in Mumias as the nearest hospital did not have oxygen.
The MP has been survived by his widow Christabel Murunga and their 8 children.
