Masten Wanjala killed by villagers

BY PETER KARANJA
Self-confessed child killer Masten Wanjala is dead.
Wanjala was beaten by angry villagers in Mukhweya, Kabuchai in Bungoma County – and his body lynched.  The area Chief Boniface Ndiera has confirmed.
The chief said: “Kuna watoto walikuwa wanaenda shule walimuona na wakamtambua na wakakimbia kwa polisi,” Mr Ndiera told Citizen Digital.
Adding: ““Wananchi waliokuwa na hamaki walivunja mlango na wakamtoa nje and within two seconds.. walikuwa wamemuua tayari.”

Wanjala is said to have hid himself inside a neighbour’s house after being pursued – but was cornered forcing him to attempt to run to save his life – but he was blocked by the angry mob – and beaten to death.

Wanjala escaped from custody at the Jogoo Road Police Station on October 13 where he was being held.

It remains unclear how the 20-year-old suspect, who was set to take plea on Wednesday, October 13, slipped from custody.

Three police officers; Police Inspector Philip Mbithi and Police Constables Boniface Mutuma and Precious Mwende all of Jogoo Police Station are in custody – and will be presented in court.
