NAIROBI, Kenya, Jun 24 – The Director of Criminal Investigations Ndegwa Muhoro has recommended that there should be a public inquest into the death of prominent businessman Jacob Juma.

Muhoro made the recommendation when he submitted file of inquiry into the businessman’s murder to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions Keriako Tobiko.

In a statement, Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Nicholas Mutuku said the file would be reviewed and a decision made on whether to adopt the recommendation on the need for a public inquiry.

The detectives used footage recovered from the CCTV camera’s up on the routes the controversial businessman used to track Juma’s movements on the night he was shot by unknown assailants while driving to his Karen home on May 6.
