A Nairobi Court has temporarily halted the burial of the late Matungu MP 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 told the court that the MP’s family excluded her from the burial plans.

She expressed concern that her children will be left out of their father’s estate.

She wants the family to recognize her and the children so that they can be allowed to attend the burial.

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 on November 26, 2020.

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 projects at his village home.

The MP died as he was being rushed to St. Mary’s hospital in Mumias.

The MP has been survived by his widow Christabel Murunga and 8 children.
