Angry Mob Kills Kenyan Serial Child Killer Who Escaped From Police Custody

A self-confessed serial child killer, Masten Wanjala, who escaped from police custody three days ago has been killed by an angry mob in western Kenya.

The police said Wanjala was traced by villagers to a house in Bungoma town and beaten to death.

WonderTV Media had earlier reported that Wanjala escaped from the Jogoo Road Police Station in Nairobi on Tuesday, October 12th after being responsible for the deaths of 13 minors.

Wanjala made news headlines in July 2021 when he was arrested and confessed to more than ten killings and sucking the blood from at least one of his victims.

According to local media, Wanjala’s five-year killing spree started when he was just 16.

After months in police custody, Wanjala escaped from prison on Tuesday, October 12.

His escape from prison led to the arrest of three police officers who were on duty at the time.

Authorities immediately launched a massive manhunt for the fugitive but locals got to him first and killed him.

Wanjala reportedly returned to the home of his parents – who have disowned him – and was subsequently strangled by neighbours who found out he was there, an eyewitness told Kenya’s Standard newspaper.

It is thought his family identified the body.

“We are not sure how he managed to travel all the way from Nairobi to his rural home,” Musyoki Mutungi said. “It is the curious villagers who first identified him and went ahead to kill him even before the police could be informed.”

Wanjala posed as a football coach to lure his victims to secluded areas, after which he attacked them.

In some cases, he took them as hostages for ransom.

Upon his arrest in July, he took the police to burial sites of his victims where bodies have since been recovered.

There are growing calls for the resignation of Kenya’s police chief over Wanjala’s escape from prison, which shocked the nation.
