Nairobi Kenya: Courtesy of Daily Nation. A woman has pleaded guilty to plotting to kill her husband by hiring gangsters who turned out to be police officers from the Flying Squad Unit.
Faith Wairimu Maina admitted before senior principal magistrate Peter Ndwiga that she wanted to get rid of John Muthee Guama, her husband of 16 years and father of their two children, as a result of “long-running domestic problems”.
“It is true I conspired to kill him because he has been beating me and not paying school fees for the children. I am everything in the house; his only work is to drink and move around with other women,” said Wairimu.
According to the facts of the case read by Chief Inspector Daniel Thuku, the couple had been experiencing domestic wrangles over allegations that Mr Guama was having an affair with a woman identified as Njeri Waamba.
Fearing that he could leave her for another woman, she hatched a plan to eliminate him through a hit squad so that she could be left with the family property.

She approached an acquaintance known as Mama Kevo with a view of hiring the hit squad, who in turn approached a Mr Wilson Mwangi.

“Mr Mwangi immediately informed the officer in-charge of Flying Squad who then assigned officers Moses Gitwahi, Joseph Langat and Peter Nderitu to carry out the investigations,” said Mr Thuku.
The three officers agreed to pose as gangsters for hire after which Mwangi introduced them to her on June 17. They arranged to meet at Wairimu’s food kiosk at Zimmerman estate where she told the officers that she had earlier paid Sh40,000 to another group of killers who failed to accomplish the mission and disappeared with the money.
She then demanded to know if the “killers” were armed for the assignment and was shown an official gun.
“The officers agreed to accomplish the job that evening upon receiving a downpayment of Sh40,000 with a promise that the remaining Sh160,000 will be paid after the killing,” said Mr Thuku.
They then hung around the food kiosk and at around 4.15 pm, Mr Gitwahi received Sh40,000 through M-Pesa sent by Faith Wairimu. She followed the transaction with a message asking if he had received the money.
She then gave the three her husband’s two passport photos to identify him and his phone number to call him in the pretext that they were customers or suppliers seeking to negotiate a business deal. That evening, the three called the husband but he did not show up.
Sniper shot
On June 18, Wairimu called the “killers” in the morning informing them that they were together with her husband at Githurai outside Equity Bank.
“The officers drove there and when she saw them, she stepped a few metres away to enable them have a better shot. Instead, the officers picked him and took him to Kasarani police station and disclosed what was happening,” said Mr Thuku.
At the station, they called Wairimu who told them to order her husband to disclose where he had put title deeds for their land and then kill him. A few minutes later, they called her with information that they had accomplished the killing and were going to collect the balance of Sh160,000.
The magistrate deferred the sentencing to June 28.
