CORD leader Raila Odinga has sensationally claimed that businessman Jacob Juma was executed.
Speaking at Lee Funeral home in Nairobi where he had gone to view Juma’s body, Raila said he last spoke to the deceased on Thursday.
“Juma called me on Thursday at around noon and said he wanted to speak to me urgently. He was a worried man. But I couldn’t meet him because I had a lunch date and later went to Parliament. I told him we will talk in the evening but unfortunately, that is the last time we spoke,” he said.
He added, “He had predicted his death. His death seems to have been planned in advance. This is an extra-judicial killing. I am in a state of shock. They have killed my friend by spraying bullets in his right hand, neck and stomach.”
The former Prime Minister condemned extra-judicial killings saying: “Mungiki members have been killed, Imams have been killed, Meshack Yebei was kidnapped in Eldoret and his body dumped in Tsavo and many more continue to be killed this way.”
He said it is useless to call for investigations into the murder because they don’t yield results. “People who are supposed to investigate are the killers. I call upon Kenyans to resist this state of anarchy. We can’t live in a country where security agents meant to protect people are the ones eliminating them,” Raila said.
