How Jane Muthoni hired us to kill Solomon Mwangi,her husband— killer

In June last year, Ms Jane Muthoni, mother of three and headmistress of Icaciri Secondary School in Kiambu hatched a “brutal, chilling and cold-blooded” plan, in the words of High Court judge Joel Ngugi, to kill her husband, Mr Solomon Mwangi, the headmaster of Kiru Boys in Kiria-ini, Murang’a.
Joseph Njuguna, alias Karis, a criminal-turned-State-witness, said in a confession that he was contacted by a woman acquaintance he only identified as Damaris for a “well-paying job”.
For the next six months, Njuguna was part of a murder squad put together by a man named Njiru.
Their first mission briefing was at Tree Shade Hotel near Ruiru on the Thika Highway.
Their assignment: to kill a girl who was an attendant at an M-Pesa shop in Kiria-ini.
The girl was having an affair with a married man, a teacher in the area, they were told.
