Late Matungu MP Justus Murunga mistress has hired a private property investigator to evaluate his estate.

Documents presented in court indicated that Agnes Wangui through her lawyer Dunstan Omari sought the services of a PI and are waiting for the report by February 15, 2021.

Lawyer Omari stated that upon receiving the register, they will seek to have the court distribute all the properties equally.

"There is no will that we know as of now, but we cannot remove the possibility of a will being brought up in court. But the law of the will is also settled," the lawyer said.

Succession row

"If the will is discriminatory if the will has left out any of the dependants from getting what is required if the will is for other people and not his blood relatives, then that will be challenged,” he further explained, as quoted by a local publication.

Wangui had sought the court's intervention to ensure DNA samples were collected from Murunga before he was buried after the other widows claimed they did not know of her and her children.

The two children Wangui had claimed to have sired with the MP underwent DNA tests and one of the tests yielded a negative result.

But lawyer Omari said the child's fate is salvaged by Section 3 (2) of the Succession Act, given that the deceased had assumed voluntary permanent responsibility for him prior to his death.
