Kiambaa MP John Kawanjiku celebrated the lawmaker's undivided commitment to the country's unity and progress in a condolence message.

“I interacted with Githunguri as a young man, he was a dedicated leader who was committed to the welfare of his people”, Kawanjiku eulogised.

The late businessman enjoyed a cordial relationship with Kenya’s founding father Jomo Kenyatta, before becoming his banker.

In his debut as a politician, Githunguri secured the Kiambaa MP seat in 2007 that was previously held by the late Njenga Karume.

He ran for the Kiambu senatorial seat in 2013 but was defeated by former Senator Kimani Wamatangi, who is now the current governor.
