Was Jacob Juma assassinated?

06 May 2016, 12:37

Nairobi - Speculation is rife that popular businessman, Jacob Juma was assassinated.

The late Juma had hinted that some people in government wanted to eliminate him.

In one of the posts, he said: “High voltage intelligence reports reaching me is that Jubilee leaders have hatched a plot to assassinate me over my stand on corruption in gov't.”

In the post dated January 26, 2016, he accused an influential journalist at one of the largest media Houses in Kenya of working with the government to assassinate his character before executing their plan.

“The scheme is well choreographed like that of the late Hon. Muchai who was murdered in cold blood and they used land issues to cover it up,” he noted.

Another one wrote: “The assassination was political. Everybody knows that…”

Juma was shot dead along Lenana road Thursday night while driving home.

The gunmen, who were riding on a motorcycle, sprayed his car with 10 bullets leaving a trail of blood on his car seats.”
