Family Of Self-confessed Serial killer Wanjala Not Ready To Bury Him For Fear Of Attracting A Curse

The family of self-confessed serial killer Masten Wanjala, who was beaten to death by irate mob few days ago, is not ready to bury him for fear of attracting a curse.

The family of Mzee Robert Wanjala Watila declined to show up at last Wednesday’s autopsy conducted by sleuths drawn from the homicide group, headed by Mr Martin Nyuguto, at Bungoma County Referral Hospital mortuary.

A close family member, whose identity was not revealed for security purposes, said their Masten Wanjala’s dissapearance from Jogoo Road Police Station in Nairobi left many with questions.

Doubting the police, the family member said: “We believe the murder was extra-judicial because prior to his death, he came here under tight police guard, raising questions on how he fled while in cell.

The source stated the family was considering suing the government over Wanjala’s death.

Mukhweya Assistant Chief Abiud Musungu said police have urged the family alongside his Bakitwika Kitanga to conduct a DNA test and lay their son to rest.

They have, however, declined asking for more time to deliberate on the matter.

“The family changed their mind and declined that the self confessed serial killer he was beaten to death. His dad showed remorse to the families of the children killed by Wanjala and urged the country to issue the body for burial,” Mr Musungu said.

He added the government will just laid Wanjala to rest if his family refused.
