“It is with deep sorrow and humble acceptance of God’s will that I wish to announce that this Tuesday at 3:00 am my dear wife Lucy went to be with the Lord while receiving care at Nairobi Hospital,” Kimunya stated.
According to Kimunya, his wife was a key pillar in both his personal and political life.

Kimunya resigned from Cabinet in July 2008 but was reappointed by Mwai Kibaki to the Trade Ministry five months later.
The former Kipipiri MP served as National Assembly Majority Leader following the ouster of Aden Duale during President Uhuru Kenyatta’s regime.
