Man “with information on Jacob Juma’s murder” detained


A court sitting in Nairobi on Thursday detained a man claiming that he worked at the Office of the Deputy President and delivered a letter to activist Boniface Mwangi that allegedly confessed how businessman Jacob Juma’s murder was planned and executed.

The suspect, identified as Douglas Ntakundi, was detained for four days to allow police conclude investigations.

Senior Principal Magistrate, Teresia Nyangena, ordered that Nyakundi be held at the Kilimani Police Station to allow Police complete investigations.

Nyakundi allegedly claimed to be a messenger in the DP William Ruto’s office and that he had been sent to Mwangi by his boss, only referred to as Mr Rono.

The letter, titled Self Confession, the court heard contained details of how Juma’s murder was planned and executed as well as the people who shot the businessman.

The suspect, who was arrested on Wednesday, November 30, demanded the activist deposit unspecified amount of money in his bank account so that his boss, Rono, could give him more details to use in the defamation case that the Deputy President has filed against him and to also introduce him to the man who killed Juma.

Nyakundi allegedly informed Mwangi that he has information that he (Mwangi) was to be killed through a stage-managed traffic road accident.

According to Philip Mwangi, an investigator attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation at Milimani Police Station, police need more time to ascertain if the two men indeed work at the Office of the Deputy President.
