Robert Wanjala has confirmed that indeed Masten Milimo Wanjala, 20, who was arrested by police for the murder and abduction of 12 minors is his biological son.
In a interview with a local TV station, Wanjala who said he first interacted with Milimo when he was in his teenage years revealed that news of his son’s arrest and hand in the chilling murders comes as a shock to him.
However, Wanjala was quick to point fingers at his son’s mother accusing her of not raising Milimo well after their separation.
“When his mother and I went separate ways, Masten was not yet born. His mother was pregnant with him and she went to Ukambani where she later got married. She lived in Ukambani for many years and brought the child home after he was circumcised,” Wanjala said.
Wanjala further claimed that when his son was brought home in Kabuchai, he was in his teenage years and his mother had no prove to show that the boy had previously been enrolled in school.
“I asked for a report card but I got none. I even asked for a transfer letter from the school he was studying but still his mother had nothing to show that she took the boy to school,” Wanjala claimed.
He says that he later enrolled Masten at St Augustine Namakhele Primary School in class six only for the 20-year old to skip class and drop out of school.
“I did my best to give him a good life by enrolling him to school but he refused to study and run away. I have no problem with Masten all I can say is that he carries his own cross,” Wanjala said.
Masten, a former remandee at the Kabete Approved School, yesterday confessed to the killings and gave chilling details of how he abducted two of his latest victims before executing them in cold blood, and even led detectives to the scene where the decomposing bodies were found.
The bodies of Charles Opindo Bala, 13, and Junior Mutuku Musyoki, 12, who disappeared on June 30 and July 7, 2021, respectively, were on Tuesday found dumped in a thicket near Kabete Approved School.
