Story behind the haunted house in Ruiru

Erected in 1990, this house sits stoically, less than 20 meters from the bustling Ruiru-Kiambu road, yet remains untouched by human occupancy for over 30 years.

Adjacent to it stands “Moon Hunters,” a lively abode constructed in the early 2000s, its rooms are reportedly filled with the laughter and stories of its inhabitants.

In stark contrast, the three-story edifice exudes an aura of opulence and wealth, yet lies desolate, succumbing to the relentless grasp of neglect and decay. Local whispers attribute its abandonment to the chilling accounts of unseen, malevolent forces haunting its rooms.
