Late Matungu MP Justus Murunga was keeping a low-key ‘Mpango Wa Kando’ since 2013 with a lady he met in Embakasi.
Agnes Wangui says she’d been in a relationship with the Murunga for seven years. They have two children, a boy, seven, and a three-year-old girl.
She says in court papers they first met in 2013 when he was a supervisor at Embakasi ranching. Wangui ran a business selling beverages and snacks within Sewerage area in Ruai at the time.
“Shortly after, we began a romantic relationship and out of the said union we were blessed with our first child who was born in November 2013 while our second child was born in 2017. Murunga later rented a house for me in Ruai,” she says.
She says Murunga paid her rent and maintenance costs for their children. He sent money via M-Pesa through his two registered phone numbers.
According to the court documents, the relationship soured in 2017 when Murunga won the Matungu parliamentary seat.
“Murunga never wanted the public nor his family to learn of the existence of our two children and even denied me his identification card for purposes of procuring birth certificates for the children,” she says.
Through lawyer Dunstan Omari, Wangui says after talks, Murunga resumed supporting the children but in a staggered manner up until his death.
According to the court documents, the MP always acknowledged and maintained the children.
Before his death, Wangui reveals that Murunga sent them Sh1,300 for gas refill and Sh4,000 for upkeep.
Agnes Wangui wants the courts to stop Murunga’s wives Christabel and Grace from burying him and her children allowed to take part in the funeral.
She also sought an order for collection of DNA samples from the MP to ascertain the paternity of her children.
Murunga died on November 14 while being rushed to hospital after collapsing at home. His body is lying at Lee Funeral Home.
