Deceased Makau had life insurance policies worth 1M on Jubilee Insurance and another from AIG Insurance company worth 8M.The most striking issue that made the death of Musyoka suspicious was the AIG insurance policy which showed it was filed three days to his death raising eyebrows on whether Musyoka could have predicted his death.
