Nairobi - Jacob Juma’s car had bulletproof windows, it has been established.
This has raised speculation that the controversial businessman who was shot dead last week could have therefore been killed elsewhere and his body dumped on Ngong road.
A postmortem examination has also revealed that Juma was shot in the chest on close range by bullets that went through the front and exited through the back.
According to Standard, Juma’s car window and windscreen had been broken with a blunt object, contrary to previous reports that they had bullet holes.
There were also signs that Juma struggled physically with his killers before his death.
Blogger Robert Alai on Monday had questioned why nobody saw the people who killed Juma, yet the highway is expected to be busy at the time he was reportedly murdered.
Alai said: “Jacob Juma was executed elsewhere then his body dumped where he was found. The scene was desperately arranged.”

He added: “While the Nairobi police boss insists that car was forced off the road and it crushed on a tree, there are not marks or scrapes on the car to support the theory of the car crashing on anything.”
Another blogger, Boniface Mwangi had also claimed that police who towed Jacob Juma’s car left him to bleed to death.
In a twitter update, he said: “Kenya Police towed Jacob Juma's car with his body still inside. Most likely reason, if he wasn't dead to ensure he bleeds to death.”
Juma was shot dead on Thursday night along Ngong Road as he drove home.
It is alleged that he was murdered on the verge of releasing critical information on Eurobond.
Prior to his death, the businessman had expressed fear for his life saying that key people in Jubilee government wanted him dead over his stand on corruption.
Investigations into his murder have already commenced, but police are yet to arrest any suspects.
