Masten Milimu Wanjala was arrested for kidnapping a 12-year-old and a 13-year-old and demanding a ransom from their parents. These had notified the police who were shadowing the suspect.

The parents of the two victims spoke to various African media outlets. The killer’s scam: He kidnapped the children and sent cell phone messages to the relatives with demands for ransom. The child murderer wanted 30,000 Kenya shillings (equivalent to around 235 euros).

“I then transferred 2000 Kenyan shillings to him because he said he had no dinner for the evening. He also assured me that he would not kill my son – unless I call in the police, ”said Tony Opindo, the father of one of the victims.

It is not known whether the children were still alive when the ransom was requested. One thing is clear: the 12- and 13-year-olds were murdered extremely brutally, the corpses were covered in blood.

At least three children are currently reported missing every day in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi. In many cases, strangers demand money to return the abductee. Therefore, the police are now investigating whether Masten Milimu Wanjala is a member of a gang.

“We expect to pin down his accomplices soon. He testifies and we come to more details, ”said a police spokesman.
