Nairobi - Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang'ula has said he will not record a statement over the death of businessman Jacob Juma, a day after police boss Joseph Boinnett asked him to do so.
The senate Minority leader Thursday during Juma’s requiem mass at All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi vowed that he will not record a statement with the police, as the killers of the controversial businessman are known.
“I will not record a statement. The recent tweets by Juma before he met his death is evidence enough. The people he metioned to be after his life should be pursued,” said Wetang’ula.
The Senator who is a lawyer explained that in law, the tweets by the deceased form part of critical evidence that can be used to nab his murderers.
“Lawyers Nancy Barasa, Kalonzo Musyoka and Martha Karua who are here know that the recent tweets by Jacob Juma can be taken as dying declaration and can be used as evidence,” he said.
Inspector General of Police, Joseph Boinnet on Wednesday appealed to the Senate minority leader to volunteer any information he has to security agents. This was after the senator promised to name the killers of Juma during his burial at the weekend
