Mungai had also taken an oil and gas course at the Energy Law Institute of the Center for America and International Law in Johannesburg.
In April 2019, Mungai represented Supreme Court Justice Jackton Ojwang’ before a committee that had been set up to investigate his conduct.
Mungai successfully helped Ojwang escape removal from the Supreme Court by a tribunal appointed by President Uhuru Kenyatta.
In January 2020, he represented Kiambu County MCAs in the Senate in their successful impeachment against former Governor Ferdinand Waititu.
The renowned lawyer was mourned by many including President Uhuru Kenyatta who described him as an accomplished lawyer whose service to the nation will be sorely missed.
The Head of State prayed to God to grant his family, friends and loved ones divine strength in this difficult time of mourning.
Senator Murang’a Irungu Kang’ata said Mungai was a silent legal legend who had mastered the art of monetizing the law.
Consumers Federation of Kenya (COFEK) Secretary General Stephen Mutoro has revealed that he has never met such a versatile, down-to-earth man with a heart of gold.
Mungai is survived by her daughter Wanjiku Njoroge and three brothers; Willy Mungai, Robert Mirangi and Joseph Kimani.
