NAIROBI, Kenya— Police in Kenya have arrested a man described as a “bloodthirsty vampire” who has been accused of slaying at least 10 children.

Masten Milimu Wanjala,20, was arrested on Wednesday over the disappearance of two children in Shauri Moyo in Nairobi, where he admitted kidnaping the children and executing them in cold blood.

The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) in Nairobi confirmed Wanjala’s arrest, who then confessed his beastly act.

“Masten Milimo Wanjala, the bloodthirsty vampire arrested earlier today is responsible for at least ten cold-blooded murders of innocent children, as our detectives have finally established.” The DCI wrote on Twitter.

In a recent occurrence, the ‘bloodthirsty murderer’ revealed to detectives that he executed the harmless children, Charles Opindo Bala, 13 and Junior Mutuku Musyoki, 12, who disappeared on June 30 and July 7, 2021, respectively.”

He confessed to disposing of the bodies of the victims in thickets in lower Kabete, others were submerged in sewer lines in the city and left to rot away.

Wanjala also confessed to contacting some parents demanding ransom in exchange for their children.

According to the DCI, 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 beast has for the past five years left families distraught and in anguish, clinging to the hope of finally reuniting with their children.

In an atrocious account, the murderer recounted brutish details of how he lured victims to his killer jaws before squeezing dear life out of the innocent children.

“The predator was barely 16 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.” DCI stated.

“Maweu’s killing marked the beginning of a spate of child disappearances and executions, all of which the killer documented by date as detectives who experienced dreary times in the field discovered.”

“Three years later in Kamukuywa, Kimilili, a 13-year-old boy only identified as Aron, was brutally murdered by the killer, who recounted to detectives the gory details of how he killed the innocent boy. 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.”

“The vampire has been on a killing spree targeting children between the ages of 12 and 13 years. He is behind some of the kidnappings that have rocked the city in the recent past.

“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. Their bodies are yet to be discovered.”

The forensic trail painstakingly pursued by DCI’s sleuths has placed the killer at the scene of every macabre killing that he masterminded.

During the investigations, the detectives 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.

The murderer who is unapologetic over his actions told detectives that he derived a lot of pleasure from killing his victims.

DCI has said that Justice shall prevail, at the same time vowed it will spare no effort to ensure this trend of crime comes to an end, once for all, and that the remnants of Wanjala will find it extremely difficult to operate in the coming days.

“As detectives pursue crucial leads to the recovery of the rest of the bodies, it is our belief 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.” The DCI Said.
