Departed Matungu MP Justus Murunga’s wives have asked a woman who claimed to have children with the MP to make a deposit of KSh10 million to cater for mortuary and other expenses.
In an affidavit, the widows asked Agnes Wangui Wambiri to make the deposit if the court fails to lift the injunction that has prohibited the family from burying Murunga.
They argue that parliament would take care of the deceased’s mortuary bills up until November 26, 2020.
The family would however be expected to pay the costs if the burial is held later.
“The injunction is disruptive as the burial of the deceased has been set for November 28, in Matungu constituency, Kakamega County.
“That grave injustice will be caused if the injunction is maintained and the burial arrangement scuttled and (then) the DNA returns a negative result,” reads the affidavit.
The widows also stated that the public health department had directed them to bury the legislator before the said date.
“Many of Murunga’s friends have made travel arrangements for the November 27 and 28. It would be a great inconvenience if the burial was to be delayed,” they added.
