Detectives have arrested a suspect behind the kidnapping and murder of two children in Shauri Moyo, Nairobi.
Masten Milimu Wanjala, 20, admitted to having kidnapped the children and executed them in cold blood.
“The bloodthirsty murderer revealed to detectives that he executed the harmless children, Charles Opindo Bala, 13 and Junior Mutuku Musyoki, 12,” says the Directorate of Criminal Investigations. The two children disappeared on June 30 and July 7, 2021.
Wanjala, who is believed to have murdered over 10 minors, led detectives to the spot where he committed the act and disposed off the bodies in Kabete.
He had earlier contacted Musyoki’s mother Felista Wayua, demanding for a ransom of KSh50,000 in exchange of her son’s freedom. Opindo’s father Tony Opindo, whose son never returned home from Sagaret Primary School in Majengo, was asked to send KSh30,000.
“Detectives are currently interrogating the criminal, to establish the whereabouts of the other children he is believed to have kidnapped and executed,” adds DCI.
The sleuths say more details shall be provided as investigations ensue.
