The ANC Party leader Musalia Mudavadi has mourned the AFC Leopards number one fan Mr Juma.
Popular football fan Isaac Juma,56, was allegedly hacked to death last night by unknown people at his family home in Rukaya village, Mumias, Kakamega County.
The ANC leader who has formed an alliance with the DP Ruto’s hustler movement is staunch Leopards fan.
“I am saddened by the death of our @AFCLeopards & @Harambee__Stars ardent fan, Isaac Juma. The late was an ever-present face on the terraces working up fans and his energy was a motivation to the boys in the pitch. May his family, friends and relatives find peace, as his soul RIP,” Musalia Mudavadi shared.

According to her Juma was involved in a land feud.
Mumias West OCPD Stephen Muoni confirmed Juma’s death, adding that one of the two key suspects has since been arrested in relation to the incident as a manhunt for the other continues.
“We may as well arraign him today depending on how fast our investigations materialise. He was in his house when he heard a commotion in his sheep pen. Going out together with his son and brother the two men hacked Juma to death as his son and brother narrowly escaped,” added the OCPD.
Juma’s body has since been moved to Butere Sub County Hospital. Juma,56, retired to his ancestral land in Mumias from Nakuru where he used to work as a newspaper vendor.
