Jacob Juma’s three secret wives made a surprise show up at his burial on Saturday.
The women surfaced as mourners, including CORD dignitaries, rounded for the funeral of the city billionaire.
The three secret wives were granted equal chance to talk like his other survivors, and they told of how and where they met the businessman.
One of the women was identified as Pamela Lukulu from Tanzania. The other is allegedly from Ugandan while the third wife is a native of western Kenya.
The three claimed to have met Juma in the early 90s. All three women reportedly has two children each for Jacob Juma, but only four of those children came with their mothers, bringing the number of Juma’s children to eight, including the one he had with his official wife, Miriam Wairimu.
The official wife and her children, nine-year-old John and Irene, 12, are the only ones who have been known to the public since the controversial businessman was gunned dead last Thursday night. Of the eight recently discovered children of Jacob Juma, the four present were paraded alongside the publicly known two children – Irene Juma and John Juma
All of his children, while addressing mourners, spoke of the love for their father.
After his murder on Thursday, May 5, it emerged that Juma had a secret habit of picking random women from social media platforms. He would personally send them messages and ask them out for dinner dates. In one, he offered to date a lady who shared a screenshot of their conversation on social media earlier on the morning of his death.
At the burial, Cord’s Raila Odinga, former Lugari MP Cyrus Jirongo, Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale were among the leaders led the program. Others were Amani leader Musalia Mudavadi, Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula, Governor Kenneth Lusaka and 12 MPs.
Raila urged the government to contract the US Federal Bureau of Investigation and Scotland Yard. According to him, Kenya is not competent to carry out the investigation fairly and thoroughly.
The Cord leader disclosed that from all indications, Juma was ripped apart with bullets in a different location before his body was dumped where it was found. Raila further expressed his disappointment over the way police is handling the case, emphasising that Juma’s widow has not been interviewed by police since her husband died.
Jirongo on the other hand roped in Ruto into the crime, suggesting that police should commence their investigation form DP Ruto as Juma slapped him once in the recent past.
The DP has threatened to head to court for defamation but former MP Jirongo has equally made clear his preparedness to bring forward evidence to back his claims. He referenced Juma’s tweets which he posted while alive, opining that it didn’t hide anything about the murder.
Jirongo, who said he helped Juma pay his education fees in 1994 at the then Kenya Polytechnic in Nairobi, also revealed that police are not acting with utmost sincerity.
Mudavadi urged the government to take Juma’s controversial posts on Twitter seriously. Wetang’ula made a direct aim at Jubilee administration, saying it has resorted to killing those who point out wrongs including corruption and the theft of public funds.
Lusaka said it is unfortunate that Kenya has lost a very ambitious man whose future was bright. He urged western leaders to use Juma’s death as a unifying factor ahead of the August 2017 general election.
Juma, 42, was killed by two shots to his chest in an attack at the Southern by-pass while on his way back home to Karen.
