Kenyan journalist John Allan-Namu claims he was never introduced to his murdered Pakistani journalist Arshad Sharif.
The murder of Sharif on Sunday night in Nairobi has drawn considerable attention from around the world for questionable reasons.
However, renowned investigative journalist Namu has acknowledged via a tweet that he has collaborated with the deceased.
Arshad Sharif was working on an explosive investigative documentary on the corruption, titled as "Behind Closed Doors". The documentary featured Kenyan investigative reporter @johnallannamu, which may explain why #ArshadSharif may have travelled to #Kenya.#alexnawilbrodamilele pic.twitter.com/MZO7gJWpxC

The former Kenyan vice-president George Saitoti’s murder and the terrorist attack at the Westgate Mall in Nairobi were two among the many thought-provoking investigative stories produced by Namu.
Sharif, a fellow investigative journalist, allegedly refused to halt at a roadblock that had been “erected by stones” outside Kitengela, about 30 kilometers from Nairobi, and was slain by police as a result, according to the police.
