Agnes Wangui Wambiri, the mistress to the late Mutunga Member of Parliament Justus Murunga has claimed that the lawmaker had wished to marry her in accordance with the Agikuyu customs before death came calling.
Agnes told the court that the deceased wanted them to formalize their union before he revealed the information to his family and to the public.
She went on to claim that Justus Murunga had looked forward to marrying her but death did not let him actualize his intentions.
“The late MP had wished we formalize our union before revealing the information to his family or members of the public. The lawmaker had in fact wished that the same be conducted in accordance with Agikuyu marriage customs. Unfortunately, death robbed him from us before he could actualize his intentions,” she said in papers filed in court.
After Justus Murunga died on Saturday 14 November, Agnes came out to stop the burial plans stating that she was his lover and had sired children with him.
She stressed out that she also wanted to be part of the funeral plans. She also wanted her children’s DNA taken to determine if they were truly the kids of the late MP.
Milimani Law Courts Principal Magistrate Agnes Makau directed the funeral plans to be stopped until Wangui’s case was heard and determined.
However, Justus Mutunga’s two wives Christabel and Grace were reluctant to obey the directive stating that plans were already underway and any postponement would cause inconveniences.
The widows told Agnes that if she should pay them Ksh. 10 million if the burial was to be postponed and she could not raise the money then she should let them lay their husband to rest.
After the drama surrounding the burial of the late Amani National Congress (ANC) lawmaker, Nairobi County Governor Mike Sonko vowed to expose all political leaders who were not being loyal to their wives.
He argued that the unfaithful politicians leave their wives with a huge burden of dealing with their mistresses once they show up during their burials.
