The police also says that nothing was stolen from him. Items such as his ID card, Sh6,500, 5 Euros and 2 mobile phones were still in the car, untouched. In other words this is a clear case of assassination.
“We don’t know the motive but this seems to be a pure murder.”– Japheth Koome, Nairobi Police Chief
The police also said that the assassins escaped on motorbikes. Investigations are ongoing.
As long as the ruling party is concerned, Jacob Juma is no sweetheart. More often than not, the outspoken money bag condemned the government which he considers corrupt.
He has been in court against the government severally. This was commonly on grounds of failed businesses. Very openly he has accused the Kenyatta administration as corrupt and being backed by President Obama. He was pro- Raila Odinga and was also a Donald Trump fan.
Jacob Juma who was not afraid of making his political views open on Twitter lately said he might walk in the footsteps of Trump by venturing into politics.
45-year old Jacob Juma is the owner of a Cortec Mining Kenya Ltd; with affiliations in SA, Stirling, UK, Pacific Wildcat Resources Corp., Canada, USA, Rio Tinto, Australia amongst others. After his graduation from the University of Nairobi he sailed off into the business world.
