The four are accused of hiring hit men to kill a Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) employee, Mr Joseph Muraya, a resident of Buruburu phase 5.

They will remain in custody until Friday when Chief Magistrate Heston Nyaga will rule on their bond application.

Mr Muraya married Ms Njoki in 2007 and they have two children. However, they separated early last year and he has been staying with the children.
