Further reports indicate that Juma is a habitual offender with several warrants of arrests issued against him.
For instance, on diverse dates in 2018, he reportedly defiled two minors in Kibwezi and upon being arraigned in court was released on bond.
He thus went into hiding prompting a warrant of arrest issued by the Makindu Law Courts.
Juma is currently in police custody and will be arraigned in court on Monday.
