Police in Bungoma have confirmed that a man lynched by a mob at Mukhweya village this morning is self-confessed serial child killer Masten Milimu Wanjala.

“He was strangled by neighbours who learnt of his presence at his parents’ home,” an eyewitness. According to Bungoma County Police Commander Musyoki Mutungi, the suspect managed to sneak into his parents’ home but suspicious villagers noticed him.

“He arrived at his parents’ home last night but he was spotted by neighbours. After sensing danger, Wanjala opted to move into a nearby house,” said Mutungi.
Mutungi said the suspect was flushed out of the home where he had gone to take cover and lynched at around 7.00am today.

“We are not sure how he managed to travel all the way from Nairobi to his rural home. It is the curious villagers who first identified him and went ahead to kill him even before the police could be informed,” said the police boss.
In his confessions to police, the suspect allegedly admitted to killing the children after disguising himself as a football coach.

Wanjala was arrested in Kajiado in mid-July, 2021 by Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) detectives.
