The self proclaimed billionaire had investments in the agriculture and mining sectors. He has been sued more than a few times for alleged shoddy business dealings.
Together with President Moi’s son Jonathan, Jacob Juma is said to have illegally acquire government land off Mombasa road, an issue that put him at loggerheads with the National Lands Commission.
He recently found his voice on Twitter, which he has been using to ‘expose’ corruption and ruffle powerful feathers. Tourism CS Najib Balala, Deputy President William Ruto, Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero, former CS Anne Waiguru and Treasury CS Henry Rotich were on his constant hit list.
