Ms. Muthoni has been in remand for the last four years following the murder of her husband of which she is the prime suspect. She has been charged alongside Mr Isaac Ng’anga alias Gikuyu, with the murder of Mr Mbuthia on diverse dates between November 4 and 11, 2016 in Kiambu County.

The court heard that the principals, who influenced transfers and promotion of teachers in the region, were aggrieved after Mr. Mbuthi was posted to the school while she was promoted to head Icaciri Secondary School without going through them. Muthoni claimed that the cartel had demanded Sh. 1 million from them to facilitate their transfers to schools of their choice.

 “After struggling for 13 years to secure transfers to work in the same region, my husband was introduced to a group of school heads who he was told had a say in the transfers and promotions. The group, however, demanded Sh. 1 million and we felt that the amount was too exorbitant so we decided to just follow the right channel,” said Ms. Muthoni.

She further said her husband started receiving threatening messages and calls from unknown people who claimed they were sent to eliminate him.
