Kimberley Kitching was an Australia Senator.[1] The circumstances behind her death are disputed.[2]

Political positions

In June 2020 she was announced as a founding member of the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China.[3]


In March 2022, Kitching died of a sudden heart attack.[4] She had allegedly been threatened with deselection for the upcoming federal election. Following her death, Kimberley's friends revealed that she had alleged being subject to bullying by members of Labor's Senate leadership team—Penny Wong, Kristina Keneally and Katy Gallagher—who denied the allegations. Labor leader Anthony Albanese said Kitching had made no official complaint about the matter, and said he would not hold an enquiry into the claims.[5]
