Detectives have arrested a man who bragged on Facebook last week that he had defiled several children.

The suspected paedophile was named as Mr William Hanga Mwazombo, an employee of Wells Fargo security firm. He was arrested on Wednesday and is currently in police custody.

Detectives had been hunting for the man since last week when he bragged online of his alleged sex encounters with minors.

In the pictures that went viral on social media, the man boasts that he is untouchable by the police.

One of his victims in the photos appears to a girl 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.

He also threw jibes at members of a popular Facebook group, Kilimani Mums.

When he was outed on the group last week, Administration Police arm, which often works with security firms for cash-in-transit, on Twitter said it had given leads to DCI.
