Former Kipipiri MP Amos Kimunya is currently grieving the loss of his wife, Lucy, who passed away while receiving treatment at Nairobi Hospital.

Expressing his sense of loss, Kimunya bid farewell to Lucy, stating, "Go well our dear Lucy, we will miss you dearly. Further communication to follow."

Amos Kimunya, who served under two Presidents, the late Mwai Kibaki and Former President Uhuru Kenyatta, held various positions in both Cabinet and Parliament. He was Minister of Lands in 2002, later moving to the Finance docket in 2006. After a brief resignation from the Cabinet in July 2008, he was reappointed to the Trade docket by Mwai Kibaki.
