A magistrate court on Friday lifted an order stopping the burial of the late Matungu member of parliament Justus Murunga following a paternity suit filed by his alleged ex-lover Agnes Wangui Wambiri.
Milimani Senior Resident Magistrate Peter Muholi ordered Murunga’s body be released to his two widows – Christabel and Grace – for burial preparations.
Murunga’s widows had set Saturday, November 28 as the internment date for the late MP. However, the court ruled that the plans can change depending on the grieving family’s preferences.

The MP’s estranged ex-lover, Agnes Wangui Wambiri, the woman who successfully stopped the burial of Murunga after filing a paternity suit has been allowed by the court to attend the burial. Also given a green light to attend the burial are Wangui’s two children.
The court further ruled that Murunga’s DNA samples be collected at 1:30 pm Friday (November 27) for analysis.
Christabel and Grace had earlier declined to the demands of Wangui to have a DNA test, stating the plaintiff “was not sure about who her children’s father(s) was/were, and, therefore, wanted an easy way to establish who her children’s biological father(s) is/are”.

The court’s magistrate directed both parties – Wangui and the MP’s widows to each present their own pathologists.
Murunga’s widow, Christabel had gone to court to lift the burial suspension saying the family was incurring a lot of expenses in body storage and hosting mourners at their homes both in the rural and Nairobi.
