CID Director recommends public inquest into Jacob Juma's murder

The Director for the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Ndegwa Muhoro has recommended a public inquest into the murder of controversial businessman Jacob Juma in May.

The Director of Public Prosecution Keriako Tobiko has received the investigation file from CID for review before deciding on whether a public inquest would be formed to unravel the mysterious murder of Juma.

Juma was shot by unknown gunmen as he drove to his Karen home on the 6th of May along Ngong Road.

So far no one has been arrested in connection with the murder.

Mid May, police issued a statement chronicling Juma’s last few hours before he met his death.

Using CCTV records, detectives were able to trace Juma’s movements between 7.30pm and 8.15pm on the night of Thursday May 5th.

Juma would later be reported dead less than an hour later.

During his requiem service, Lugari MP Cyrus Jirongo demanded that Deputy President William Ruto be interrogated by the CID over Juma’s death, after the late entrepreneur claimed the DP was part of a plot to assassinate him in a series of controversial tweets on his handle early this year.

However, Ruto said Jirongo’s remarks were motivated by the bitterness he harbours toward him, following his political success – compared to Jirongo’s, who was his ally during the Youth for KANU 92 heydays.
