The late Matungu Mp Justus Murunga’s lover who went to court to stop his burial has revealed intricate details of their affair.
Agnes Wangui Wambiri while speaking to the Nation newspaper said that her relationship with the late lawmaker goes way back to 2017.
She revealed that before the two began dating, she was just a hawker selling tea in Nairobi.
Wangui bore him two children and the late Mp was the one providing for their household needs as well as paying rent for their three bedroom apartment.
“I used to sell him uji or tea every day before he fell in love with me,” Wangui told the Nation.
The mother of two said that until his untimely death in November 14, Murunga had never failed to pay their house rent.
“He loved me and his children. He is the one who named the last born when she was born in 2017. He had even told me that he would formalise our relationship with a customary wedding under the Agikuyu rites,” Wangui further said.
Immediately after the Mp died, Wangui went to court through lawyer Danstan Omari, and wanted the two widows of Murunga to involve her and the two kids in the burial arrangements and be allowed to attend his final send off.

The woman also wanted the court to issue an order for the collection of DNA samples from the deceased and her children to ascertain their paternity.
Wangui, in an affidavit, said her two children are biological children of the deceased.
And on Friday, Senior Resident Magistrate Peter Muholi on Friday directed that Wangui and her children be allowed to participate in the MP’s sendoff.
Magistrate Peter Muholi also allowed Wangui to collect DNA samples from the former MP’s remains to prove the paternity of her children.
Burial arrangements are now underway as the the court has since allowed the burial to take place.
