“The land documents are currently in Juma’s name and that doesn’t sit well with the elder sister,” Auma told Mozzart Sport.

A son of the elder sister has been arrested as a key suspect.

“Her son has openly threatened to kill Juma in the past and they have had several altercations over the land (around six acres) in the past.

“We identified the nephew as one of the attackers and he is currently in custody. We are currently finalising on reporting the matter here at the police station then we will know what next. We are very sad as a family” she added.

In a past Kenyan Premier League match at Bukhungu Stadium, Kakamega, Juma carried a placard reading: “Be aware, my land is not for sale. Fight Corona, not me,” signaling a dispute over land.
