In Summary


Police also said that the deceased was a licensed firearm holder, but only his firearm certificate was found in his pocket.

Detectives did not say whether the firearm was stolen by the attackers or if he had left it at home.

Police were also studying the blood stain pattern, especially the quantity and the pattern of the blood on the co-driver’s seat.

Detectives investigating the death of controversial businessman Jacob Juma on Sunday visited the scene of the murder and Karen Police Station for the second time as probe enters the third day without any major developments.

Already, the detectives have taken all the exhibits that were found in the car and at the scene, including the deceased’s clothes.

Some of the documents found in the car were copies of documents on Eurobond that the businessman had given the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) earlier this year.

It has not yet been established why Mr Juma had the Eurobond documents that he had submitted to the EACC several weeks ago in his car that fateful day.

Police also said that the deceased was a licensed firearm holder, but only his firearm certificate was found in his pocket.

However, detectives did not say whether the firearm was stolen by the attackers or if he had left it at home.

Police were also studying the blood stain pattern, especially the quantity and the pattern of the blood on the co-driver’s seat.

It was not immediately established if the officers who went to the scene first tampered with the car or the deceased’s body. Mr Juma was found belted on the driver’s seat.

The statements of the officers who first visited the scene shortly before 10pm is to be recorded to reconstruct the scene that had already been tampered with when the team from the Director of Criminal Investigations took over.

Among those who attended the scene were Karen OCPD Eshiphan Gichohi and his DCI counterpart Mr Kenneth Njoroge, who were still within the station when the shooting took place.

However, the National Police Service spokesman George Kinoti on Sunday said that the investigations were proceeding well but will only comment on the matter on Monday.

Mr Juma’s call data has also been retrieved and is expected to help in establishing his last movements and the persons he communicated with at least five hours before his mysterious death.

In December last year, the former Karen Police station was upgraded to a full division, and the two senior officers posted there as part of efforts to tame rising incidents of crime.
