Deceased MP’s lover moves to court to stop his burial
Deceased Matungu MP Justus Murunga’s alleged girlfriend has moved to court to stop the burial of the MP.
Agnes Wangu has filed a law suit at the Milimani Law Courts claiming that she has sired two children with the lawmaker.
According to Wangui, she has been in a relationship with the MP for seven years during which she bore him a boy and a girl.
“I first met the deceased in 2012, when he was a supervisor at the Embakasi Ranching,” she said in her affidavit.
“He told me he was living in Utawala, Nairobi with his wife, Christabel. In 2016, he rented me a house in Ruai, where I lived with my son.
Wangui says that she met the MP in Embakasi where she was selling beverages and snacks.
“The deceased used to pay our monthly [house] rent and child maintenance. Mostly, he would send me money via M-Pesa,” she said.
She however claims that Murunga started avoiding her after he won the Matungu parliamentary seat in the August 8, 2017 general election.
Wangu is being represented by Musyoki Mogaka & Co. Advocates, a law firm associated with top lawyer Danstan Omari.
