The ghosts of the slain controversial Businessman Jacob Juma continue to haunt the Deputy President William Ruto. The controversial businessman, a known critic of the Jubilee government, was gunned down by unknown assailants near Lenana School on 5th May 2016
Juma appeared to have a premonition of his own death going by the posts on his social media accounts which he linked the Deputy President William Ruto. He made his first claim on attempt on his life when he alleged that a senior government official was obsessed with killing him.
Seven days later, he proclaimed that he had reached the pinnacle of his life and was therefore not afraid of death.
Mr.@UKenyatta am not a coward. I have reached the pinnacle of my life and am not scared of death. I will not run away from Kenya, my country

Then on March 1, 2016, he offered himself as the sacrificial lamb in order to end corruption.
I am ready and willing to die for the sake of this nation if that will save us from corruption. I have lived long enough to worry abt death.
More than three years later and Juma’s murder has never been resolved. But his name has re-emerged on social media after Ruto called the Directorate of Criminal Investigation claiming that his life is in danger. On Monday, four Ministers were summoned to the DCI to provide more information about Ruto’s claims.
It is on the basis of these claims, that Kenyans have recalled Juma’s brutal murder.
Dear Jacob Juma,our darling Dp Ruto has requested the Uhuru to probe assassination claims against him.He has also named his assassins just like you did.He has also requested for modification of his car to bomb proof status just like you had one. In case he visits you give him tea

Here are some of the other reactions
Dp Ruto is afraid of heaven.He fears what he will tell Jacob Juma,Msando and kiambaa victims who lost lives just because of personal interests.Time comes when you have to audit your steps.For a whole Dp Ruto to come to the media to report Cs to DCI.

Is that the Ruto who Jacob Juma complained about every day and eventually killed

Ruto is a murderer who killed Jacob Juma. Together with Uhuru they killed Musando. Who doesn't know? Jirongo stated clearly how Ruto had killed a man in early 2000 when they went for a rally in Trans Nzoia and chaos begun. Today, Ruto is trembling saying his life is in danger.
