Kiambu billionaire Stanley Munga Githunguri has died at the age of 77.
Githunguri, a former Member of Parliament for Kiambaa Constituency, died while undergoing medical attention at a Nairobi hospital, The Standard reported.
Kiambaa MP John Njuguna condoled with the family of Githunguri, whom he described as a dependable leader whose undivided focus was the unity and progress of the country.
“I interacted with Githunguri as a young man, he was a dedicated leader who was committed to the welfare of his people,” Njuguna said.
The deceased ventured into politics in 2007 when he clinched the Kiambaa parliamentary seat which was previously held by former Cabinet minister and businessman the late Njenga Karume. He served as a member of parliament from 2007 to 2013 when he run for the Kiambu senatorial seat but lost to Kimani Wamatangi.
Last year, the tycoon was embroiled in a property row with his son Joseph Munga, who was demanding a share of his father’s multi-billion-shilling estate.
Munga secured an order to question his dad in the property row. This was after the Court of Appeal dismissed an objection raised by Githunguri’s daughters seeking to block him from appearing before High Court judge for questioning as requested by their brother.
The daughters Lilian Joy Ngagaki and Lilian Wanjiru claimed that their father suffers from dementia and requires to be placed under urgent care.
Githunguri, who once worked as a coffee picker, owns Lilian Towers, where Nairobi Safari Club sits and Ridgeways Mall and huge tracts of land in Kiambaa and Ruiru in Kiambu.
Charles Njonjo and his Well-gotten Wealth beat Githunguri and his Ill-gotten Wealth by 103-77 (about 25 yrs). Meaning much Ill-gotten Money ain't Necessarilly much life.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If he were in Hollywood a dentist would have advised him to close that gap. In Africa they consider a gap in the front teeth as beauty in Hollywood they close it.
Now his children will be at each other's throat over wealth they did not create. I just had a drink with a struggling city lawyer and he is looking for connections to one of the daughters; Lilian Joy Ngagaki.
@ Mlandizi, that's the new trend. Wills that were made while the deceased was alive are ignored. All scramble to re-cut the pie that some never helped bake,just because they have bigger appetite and mouth.
I agree @ Sidai. He can't be 77. I remember Moi trying to take Lilian Towers. That was years ago
Githunguri should be older than 77 surely. he was fighting with Moi when Moi wanted to take over his Nairobi Lillian Towers many years . this is more than 50 years ago . he must be in his 90s
