His step father - Anthony Ndonye Musau has come out to lift the lid on a son he took in as his own before he abandoned him after the two could no longer get along well.
Mr Anthony reveals he married Wanjala's mother Edna in 2004, and willingly took her in together with her son, but Masten Wanjala began to disrespect them just 2 years into their relationship.
“He had started behaving badly,” Anthony says. “Picking money from our clothes, not answering respectfully… he had just started being generally rude,” he revealed.
Anthony reveals that even with Wanjala's bad behavior, he always emerged top in school, leaving his parents puzzled.
“The thing that puzzled us most was that even with him attending less than a month of school every term, he was always the best or the second-best student in the class. Nothing past these two positions. He was one of the most intelligent people I ever knew.” he revealed.
However, despite his good grades, Wanjala never had appetite for school, and in 2014, he vanished from home without saying a word , leaving his parents wondering whether he was alive or dead.
Anthony says he tried raising him well, but there is nothing he could do when Wanjala's behavior turned worse.
In spite of the struggles he endured in his early years, hard work has paid off for Anthony - Wanjala's step father who is now building a house in the outskirts of Machakos town.
