Kalembe Ndile, a former Kibwezi Member of Parliament, will be laid to rest on June 11, 2021.
After attending a funeral planning meeting at Ndile's second house, Greepark Estate in Machakos, the politician confirmed the burial date.
He also challenged lawmakers to make a positive contribution to the community.
After a long illness, Ndile, 57, died on Sunday morning at Nairobi Hospital.
He was said to be suffering from liver cirrhosis.
Local officials have praised the late congressman as a dynamic leader who had the best interests of his people and the country at heart, including President Uhuru Kenyatta, his deputy William Ruto, and former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
After a failed attempt in 2017, Ndile showed interest in running for the Mavoko parliamentary seat in the 2022 General Election.
