Foreign investigators to probe Jacob Juma murder
06 May 2016, 19:31
Nairobi - Because of lack of trust in local mechanisms, foreign investigators will be hired to get to the bottom of the assassination of businessman Jacob Juma.
Juma was murdered in Nairobi outside Lenana School Thursday night by unknown gunmen on a motorbike.
Having ruffled many feathers in government over a number of unscrupulous deals , the businessman's death has called for investigation from family, friends and political allies.
Kenyan Police though are not much trusted with the job.
" The family as well as CORD leader Raila Odinga want answers to his murder and will look for international investigators to probe the death," a source close to the murder investigations told News24.
Police have also started investigations into the murder.
" The investigations into the murder have begun ad we are focussing on why he would be wanted dead," Nairobi Police chief Japheth Koome told News24.
Juma's body is currently lying at the Lee Funeral home in Nairobi.
