In the recent year, since the advent of the Corona Virus, the Directorate of Criminal Investigations has arrested a few serial killers who have caused mayhem.

The serial killers, who are predominantly men, prey on young girls as well as women and little boys as their targets for their blood lust.

These serial killers have been able to be stopped by the meticulous work of the DCI detectives who don't tire untile they are brought to book.

Here are a few serial killers that have plagued Kenya:

Philip Onyancha

Onyancha is probably one of the most famous Kenyan serial killers after his widely publicized arrest in 2010 and subsequent confession of 17 murders of women.

Onyancha was recently acquitted of the murders as no evidence was ever found at the scene he took cops to linking him to the killings.
