Jane Murugi, the sister of Githunguri Member of Parliament Gabriel Kago, was on Friday morning found dead in Membley, Ruiru, Kiambu County.
Speaking to a local media, the jubilee lawmaker said the family suspects murder.
Murugi, who worked as a nurse at Machakos County, was found dead in her matrimonial home’s toilet.
Her death was confirmed by Ruiru police boss, Mutwiri Ringera, who noted that the deceased might have been murdered.
Initial reports indicated that she had committed suicide.
“A scarf tied to a necktie was found hanging from the toilet window,” Ringera was quoted by K24.
Murugi is said to have been on maternity leave at the time of the incident. She leaves behind a two-months-old baby.
The late medic’s body was moved to Kenyatta University Funeral Home, where a postmortem examination is scheduled for Friday afternoon.
Other leaders who visited the mortuary to mourn Murugi are Kiambu Woman Representative Gathoni Wamuchomba, who is Ndoro’s neighbour, and area MP Simon King’ara.
