KTN’s investigative journalist, Mohamed Ali, may have to start carrying out an investigation into his own life to find out who is clamouring to have him killed after he reportedly survived an assassination attempt on the morning of Friday, August 26 along Bunyala road .
Mohamed Ali, was headed to Standard Group Offices on Mombasa road, when the attack commenced. Reports show that Ali was followed by a car from the Central Business District (CBD) to around the Nyayo national stadium.
On getting to Bunyala road, a man on a motorbike aimed a gun at his car but couldn’t fire shots since, at that very moment, the traffic jam toned down.
The unconfirmed information on social media also reveals that the would-be assassin then sped off in the bike.
On his twitter handle, Mohamed Ali alleged that he had received death threats after his investigative piece Kaburi La Wazi II –which revealed that police had murdered four-man gang to mask the controversial murder of Jacob Juma.
After he shared the message on his wall, social media became awash with messages experiencing their disappointments, accusing the entire system of tolerating crimes.
John Allan Namu wrote. “RE: Jacob Juma. Targeting the journalists who are on that trail just shows how much those behind his murder DON’T believe in the law.”
Ali said: “God is great. Let them come”.
Moments later, Jicho Pevu reporter’s timeline went abuzz with his followers re-tweeting the post.
“Moha Jicho Pevu receives death threat after exposing those who killed Jacob Juma. The system is not happy,” one of his followers noted.
A fearless Ali, however, highlighted that: “I REFUSE TO DIE. WE MUST STOP THIS BEFORE THEY WIPE OUT THE ENTIRE GENERATION”.
This adds to the number of times the KTN journalist has received death threats after an exposé about bigwigs.
In his recent expose on TV, Ali revealed that six people including a gang of four have since been murdered to aid in the cover-up of the murder of the businessman, Jacob Juma.
It was later said that the gangsters who were shot dead on May 23 along Uhuru Highway were part of a scheme to protect Juma’s assassins.
Jacob Juma was murdered on the night of Thursday, May 5, 2016, and his body was found dumped in his car along Ngong Road, near the Lenana School.
