The son of the late businessman Jacob Juma on Thursday eulogised his father in a touching speech at the All Saint Cathedral where a requiem mass was held.
John Juma, while holding back tears, described his father as ‘the best dad he could ever have’.
The 9-year-old remembered his dad as a very truthful man who always tried to show them peace.
“When he said this he meant it and I am not just saying because he died. He tried to show us peace but he got killed,” John stated.
John added that it was sad that his father was dead but added that he should be left to rest in peace.

The little boy concluded his speech stating: “A man is still a man even if he has passed[sic]”.
During the mass, Juma’s widow said that she learnt about her husband’s death in the media. She further revealed that though police indicated that they were investigating the murder, she has never been questioned in regard to the incident.
Juma was last week shot dead by unknown people while supposedly driving past Lenana School on his way home.
