Police have arrested a middle-aged man who bragged on social media about defiling female children.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations Office has identified the suspect as William Hanga Mwazombo, an employee of a security company in Kenya.
“William Hanga Mwazombo, an employee of Well’s Fargo security firm was arrested yesterday and is currently in lawful custody for posting defamatory photographs of children on media. We thank you, members of the public, for alerting us,” the DCI tweeted on Monday.
The Directorate of Criminal Investigations Office says it has launched action into claims of child defilement by a man, who took to Facebook to brag about his sexual encounters with female children.
Late last week, Mwazombo allegedly posted several pictures of young girls aged between 5 and 16 to Kilimani Mums Facebook page, and bragged about sexually defiling them.
In other online posts, he said he was in the process of luring more minors into sex.
In one of his posts, the man posted a picture posing with a teenager, who he claimed was a Form Two student, and said he had already defiled her. He went ahead to say: “the police can’t flush me out”.
In yet another sickening post, the man said he had lured a girl, whose age estimate was between 4 and 5, with a bottle of soda. He bragged that he would accost and take her to his house, where he would defile her. Again, he boldly stated: “The police can’t reach me”.
The National Police Service brought to the DCI’s attention complaints lodged by online users against the alleged pedophile.
The office of the DCI said it had taken up the issue, and vowed to hunt for the pedophile.
“@NPSOfficial_KE. That [complaint against the alleged pedophile] is received and necessary action will be taken. Thanks,” said the DCI on Twitter.
Investigations are ongoing, with the DCI saying Mwazombo will be arraigned once the process is concluded.
