A suspected paedophile who shocked Kenyan netizens after bragging about his sexual encounters with several minors has been arrested.
William Hanga Mwazombo, 23, a Wells Fargo employee, was arrested in Mpeketoni, Lamu County on Wednesday evening. He was picked up from his workstation by detectives acting on a tip-off about his whereabouts.
Detectives had been hunting for the suspect since last week when he bragged about his pedophilia tendencies and shared pictures of his victims.
One of his victims in the photos appears to be a girl aged between five to six years, while another is in her mid-teen years. The photos were captioned with sickening details of how he lured his victims into his trap and what he did to them.
The suspect further boasted that he is untouchable by the police.
Hanga is currently in lawful custody awaiting profiling and prosecution. He is facing child sex tourism charges which attract an imprisonment term of not less than ten years upon conviction.
