Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko is offering a cash reward of Sh200,000 for information leading to the arrest of confessed child serial killer Masten Milimu Wanjala.
Wanjala, who is accused of killing 13 children in different parts of the country, reportedly escaped from police custody on Tuesday under mysterious circumstances. The 20-year-old suspect was being held at Jogoo Road Police Station and was set to appear in court on Wednesday.
“I'm offering a reward of Kshs. 200,000/= to anyone who will give information that will lead to the arrest of this animal by the police,” Sonko wrote through his Facebook page.
Following his arrest in July, the suspect led detectives to two murder scenes in Machakos county, five in Nairobi and two in Kajiado. Last month, detectives confirmed that Wanjala had killed four more minors in Bungoma, bringing the number of his victims to 13.
Investigations revealed that Wanjala single-handedly massacred his victims in the most callous manner, sometimes through sucking blood from their veins before executing them.
Police said the suspect was barely 16 years old when he executed his first victim, a 12-year-old girl who was kidnapped in Machakos in 2016.
Detectives established that all the murder victims were stupefied using a white substance in powder and liquid form, before being executed.
