Kenya: child killer escapes custody

Three police officers on duty at the time of Masten Wanjala’s escape were arrested

A man who confessed to killing more than 10 children in Kenya escaped police cells in Nairobi.

Masten Wanjala was scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday for the murders of at least 14 boys in the capital and parts of eastern and western Kenya.

Police say they noticed he was missing during the morning call.

He was being held during police investigations into the nation-shocking spate of child murders.

Three policemen who were on duty at the time of his escape from Jogoo Road police station in the Eastlands neighborhood of Nairobi were arrested.

The authorities launched a manhunt which they described as extremely dangerous.

Mr. Wanjala was arrested in July and confessed to drugging and killing the young boys, as well as drinking their blood in some cases.
