The late Amani National Congress (ANC) lawmaker died on November 14 at the St. Mary’s Mission Hospital in Mumias.

Two weeks prior to his death, Murunga had been admitted at Agha Khan Hospital in Kisumu, battling diabetes.

He suddenly fell sick again with breathing problems and died while he was being rushed to the hospital.

Burial postponed

Murunga’s burial was initially scheduled for November 28 but the plans had to be shelved. This is after a woman claiming to have two children with the MP obtained a court order temporarily stopping the burial.
