Abuga Makori remarked, “Sgt Kenei was ELIMINATED also in similar version and circumstances like Jacob Juma and Yebei. It’s time Jirongo tells us more about the drama. He was guarding DP Ruto offices which are now linked to a Titanic scandal! DCI should tell us WHO killed him No more assassinations!
Another netizen identified as Zaq Top noted, “The list is growing, people are dying no answers are given. How long will we cover up impunity, how long will we hide the truth? The blood of MESHAK YEBEI, JACOB JUMA, CHRIS MSANDO and JOHN KIPYEGON Still Wailing in the Ground For Justice. WHO’S NEXT? #RutoRebelMovement“
Henry Mwangi articulated, “Do you remember Jacob Juma.”

The gun runner will never be president. That man always leaves a trail of death. May Msando, Jacob Juma and Yebei rest in peace. "he shall not know peace" said Msandos wife.
