The son to former powerful Kieni Constituency member of parliament and assistant minister Chris Murungaru passed on Dec 14 according to a newspaper advertisement that appeared in local dailies.
Antony Gicheru Murungaru passed on at Apollo Hospital In India, revealing how the rich avoid Kenyan hospitals. The cause of his death has been kept a secret as efforts by the editor of this site to get details failed.
On January 22, 2006, John Githongo named Murungaru as one of three top politicians (along with Kiraitu Murungi, former Justice Minister and Energy Minister, and former Minister David Mwiraria) as being involved in a financial scam involving up to $ 600M.On February 1, 2006, the then Finance Minister David Mwiraria announced that he was stepping down as a minister and a member of the cabinet to pave way for investigation. The news was received with joy by many Kenyans, though some saw him as a scapegoat who has been sacrificed to protect others.
On January 16, 2006, President Kibaki allowed anti-corruption chief Aaron Ringera to request Murungaru to declare and account for his wealth. Murungaru moved to court to prevent the Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission from investigating, saying fulfilling the commission’s request would amount to self-incrimination.
Vice President Moody Awori announced on February 2, 2006, that he would not step down despite being adversely mentioned in the Anglo Leasing Scandal. He has insisted that he is innocent and that nothing short of due process will make him resign his post. He has criticized by many people for defending those involved in the scandal before Parliament.
The body of Chris Murungaru’s son is at Lee Funeral home.
He will be buried tomorrow Friday, 21st 2018 at the family home in Munyu, Kieni East in Nyeri County.
