Masten Milimo Wanjala who has confessed to detectives on how he has been kidnapping and killing children has further opened up about his operations.

In a shocking detailed information to detectives, he has finally opened up saying that he killed at least ten children in Nairobi and Bungoma counties.

Detectives on Thursday revealed that he confessed to having been murdering his victims who he stupefied using a white substance in powder and liquid forms.

“He said that he is not unapologetic over his actions maintaining that he derived a lot of pleasure from killing his victims,” Directorate of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti said.

It has emerged that he was massacring his victims in the most callous manner and even sucked blood through their veins before finally killing them.

Asked how he managed to lure the children to his trap, Wanjala said that he befriended the minors for long before he could strike.

“He used to join the kids even play football with them before finally striking and killing them in cold blood,” a detective privy to the ongoing investigations said.

The 20-year-old beast has also been operating as a killer for the last five years and his confession has left parents whose kids went missing in the recent past more shaken and distraught.

His first victim was Purity Maweu, a 12-year-old girl who was kidnapped from Kiima Kimwe in Machakos County and her blood sacked by the killer before he left her to die.

After Maweu’s death, a 13-year-old boy only identified as Aron, was brutally murdered by the killer, who gave detectives gory details of how he killed the innocent boy.

The killing of Aron led to protests in Kamukuywa, with residents torching a house that belongs to a person whom they suspected to have ended the life of the boy.

“The vicious cold-blooded killer lured two boys from Kitengela and Mlolongo to their deathtrap, before being strangled and their bodies dumped in a sewer line,” Kinoti said.

On Wednesday, he led detectives to Gitaruru in Kabete where he dumped the bodies of two boys who were recently kidnapped from Majengo.

He has since been arraigned in court.
