The burial of the late Matungu MP Justus Murunga which had been stopped by the courts may proceed as previously planned on November 28th 2020.

Details emerged on Saturday that the parties had agreed to settle the matter out of court.

The petition to stop the burial was filed by one Agnes Wangui Wambiri who claimed that she had sired two children with the late MP.

Wambiri had sought to have her children included in the burial arrangements as well as have the court order a paternity test to ascertain they are the late MP's children.
