Former Kiambaa Member of Parliament and billionaire Stanley Githunguri is dead.

Reports reaching the Standard say the former politician died at an undisclosed city hospital, however, the family is yet to communicate.

He died at the age of 77.

In a condolence message, the incumbent Kiambaa MP John Kawanjiku mourned the lawmaker 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”, said Kawanjiku.

Githunguri ventured into politics in 2007 capturing the Kiambaa constituency seat then held by a former cabinet minister and businessman the late Njenga Karume.

He served as a member of parliament from 2007 to 2013.

In 2013, he vied for the Kiambu senatorial seat but lost to former Senator Mr Kimani Wamatangi.

In a multi-billion property row, her daughters Lilian Ngagaki and Lilian Wanjiru had disclosed to the court that he(Githunguri) suffered from dementia, blood pressure, and diabetes and he had also undergone a kidney transplant.

After losing to Wamatangi, Githunguri settled for a quiet life in business away from the public domain.

He owns Lilian towers that host the Nairobi Safari Club, Ridgeways Mall, and other properties in Ruiru and Kiambu Sub counties.

Githunguri was also once the CEO of the National Bank. - Fidelis Kabunyi, The Standard
