Masten Milimo Wanjala; the bloodthirsty serial killer was arrested Wednesday morning is responsible for at least ten cold-blooded murders of innocent children.
This is according to sleuths who arrested Wanjala.
According to police, Wanjala single-handedly massacred his victims in the most callous manner, sometimes through sucking blood from their veins before executing them.
“The 20-year-old has for the past five years left families distraught and in anguish, clinging on the hope of finally reuniting with their children.
Unknown to some of the families, their children were devoured and their remains dumped in thickets in Lower Kabete. Others were submerged in sewer lines in Nairobi and left to rot away,” reads part of the DCI report.
In a nerve-racking blow-by-blow account, the murderer recounted harrowing details of how he lured victims to his killer jaws before squeezing dear life out of the innocent children.
The predator was barely 16 years old when he executed his first victim five years ago. Purity Maweu, a 12-year-old girl was the first to fall prey to the killer.
The young girl was kidnapped from Kiima Kimwe in Machakos and her blood sucked by the killer, before being left for dead. Maweu’s killing marked the beginning of a spate of child disappearances and executions, all of which the killer documented by date, as detectives have discovered.
Three years later in Kamukuywa, Kimilili, a 13-year-old boy only identified as Aron, was allegedly brutally murdered by the suspect. Aron’s killing led to protests in Kamukuywa, with residents torching a house belonging to a person whom they suspected to have killed the boy.
Police now say the suspect has been on a killing spree targeting children between the ages of 12 and 13 years.
He is alleged to have been behind some of the kidnappings that have rocked Nairobi in the recent past. He is accused to have lured two boys from Kitengela and Mlolongo to their deathtrap, before being strangled and their bodies dumped in a sewer line. Their bodies are yet to be discovered.
The forensic trail painstakingly pursued by police has placed the killer at the scene of every macabre killing that he masterminded.
Wednesday afternoon, he led detectives to Gitaruru in Kabete where he had dumped the bodies of two boys recently kidnapped from Majengo.
“Detectives have further established that all the murder victims were stupefied using a white substance in powder and liquid form, which the victims were either forced to drink or sprayed with before being executed,” states the report.
The suspect is said to have told police that he was unapologetic over his actions and that he derived a lot of pleasure from killing his victims.
Police say: “We believe that the criminal justice system will serve justice to the innocent souls and relieve the heavy hearts of the mourning parents, siblings and Kenyans in general.”
