A court in Nairobi has halted the burial of Matungu MP after his estranged mistress moved to court to stop it.
Application to Stop Burial
An application filed by Anne Wangui stated 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.
Wangui wants the family of the deceased to recognize her children and for them to be allowed to attend his final send-off.
Court and Ruling: Family Barred
The court has now barred the family of the late MP from conducting any funeral rites until a DNA test is done to ascertain the paternity of Ms. Wangui’s two children. The matter will be heard before the court on November 26.
Justus Murunga collapsed at his home on Saturday while in the company of his bodyguard and a domestic worker.
Murunga 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 eight children.
