The debate of who killed the business man, Jacob, whose requiem mass was held today at cathedral Catholic Church has heated up after the police has been put on spot over the investigations by the opposition leaders.
CORD leader Raila Odinga earlier claimed that Juma was killed by a hit squad.“We must unite and say no to political assassinations,” he said.Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula came in and said that he knew who killed Jacob, an incident that made Inspector general of Police, Boinnet to summen him to write a statement which Bungoma senator declined.
“I will not record a statement. Those who are lawyers know that the recent tweets by Jacob Juma can be taken as dying declaration and can be used as evidence,” he said.
During the requiem mass for Juma today, Raila Odinga again claimed that Inspector General of Police Jospeh Boinnet knows who Juma’s killers are.
“When we are being told that the matter is now being handled by the Director General of CID, the Inspector General has the impudence to demand that Moses Wetangula and Raila Odinga should go before him and write a statement, he can take that to the parrots and dogs. He knows very well who are the killers of Jacob Juma. This is a hit squad that is known.”
The wiper leader who was also attendant to the event called for Kenyans to get out of the comfort zone and define the nation destiny.“Kenyans, we must get out of our comfort zone and define the destiny of our nation. The fight against corruption will not end with the burial of my brother JJ,” Kalonzo Musyoka said.
Moses Wetangula also accused the police of delaying the investigations as they plan on how to cover up the matter.“We want Juma’s killers brought to book here and now. We know there is a systematic plan to cover up the murder. We owe this country,” said Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula.
Juma’s burial will take place at his home in Mungore Village, Bungoma County with Senator Moses Wetang’ula already promising to make public the names of alleged killers of the businessman.
According to Luhya custom,he will be buried with lit torch and a knife beside, tools that “he will use to avenge his death”.
