Deadliest Kenyan Serial Killers

Philip Onyancha

Philip Ondari Onyancha is the serial killer who shocked many Kenyans.

In 2010, eight sex workers were reported murdered in the town of Thika. Jacqueline Wambui (25) was one of the victims of confessed serial killer Philip Onyancha.

Onyancha allegedly confessed to killing 19 women and children in 2009. He has been charged with three murder counts together with Tobias Nyabuhanga Aradi and Douglas Obiero Makori.

They denied that on April 14, 2014 in Dagoretti, Nairobi they killed nine-year-old Anthony Njirwa Muiruri.

Twelve years on, Onyancha is now a preacher at the Kamiti Maximum Prison.

He was accused of smothering more than a dozen women living in North Texas retirement homes before robbing them of their jewelry. He faced three more capital murder charges.

Chemirmir is a former healthcare worker. Authorities charged him in connection with the deaths of 14 elderly people in Dallas and Collin Counties between 2016 and 2018.

A Kenyan immigrant with permanent resident status in the US, Chemirmir is being held in the Dallas County Jail on a bond of $11.6 million (about Sh1.3 billion), pending a 2021 trial date.
