Jacob Juma body touches down at Masinde Muliro grounds

13 May 2016, 18:50

Nairobi - Slain businessman Jacob Juma’s body has arrived at the Masinde Muliro Grounds ready for burial on Saturday.

The body arrived aboard a chopper and was accompanied by family members.

Jacob Juma will be buried at his rural home in a traditional burial ceremony where elders have already hinted that he will be buried holding a knife and a torch, a cultural action believed to haunt those behind murder of the deceased.

Juma, was a successful businessman who made millions and his life has been eulogized as one of opulence.

He was killed on Thursday last week in a hail of bullets at Lenana area as he headed to his Karen home.

The vocal businessman left behind a widow and two children, a boy and a girl.

On Thursday, a requiem mass was held at the All Saint Cathedral in Nairobi where he religiously attended Sunday service during his life in Nairobi.

Politicians who spoke at the requiem mass pointed an accusing finger to figures in government as people behind his brutal death.
