Late Murunga’s Lover Wins Case Against His Widows

A Milimani Court has granted the late Matungu Member of Parliament Justus Murunga’s alleged lover Agnes Wangui’s request to conduct a DNA test to ascertain her children’s’ paternity.

Wangui, who had claimed to have sired two children with the late MP, move to court seeking permission to take DNA samples from the body of Murunga and that of her children so as to ascertain their biological father.

In his ruling, Senior Resident Magistrate Peter Muholi also ordered that Wangui and her two children have been allowed to attend the burial and participate in the arrangements.

Muholi also ordered Lee Funeral Home to release Murunga’s body for burial on Saturday, or any other day the family will decide.

Wangui had also claimed on Monday, November 16, that Murunga had plans to solemnise their union before his death.

She further told the court that the late MP also had plans to build her a house and had already bought a parcel of land in Karen and construction plans were underway.

“Murunga had also wished we formalise our union before making it known to his family or the public. As a matter of fact, he had wished that the same be conducted in accordance with Agikuyu marriage customs. Unfortunately, death robbed him from us before he could actualize his intentions,” says Wangui.
