Court or­ders another men­tal exam for blood­thirsty killer

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News - Than­deka Moyo

THE mur­der trial of a man claim­ing to be a Satanist, who has been dubbed the vam­pire killer, failed to kick off af­ter a High Court judge in Bu­l­awayo or­dered that he be ex­am­ined by another psy­chi­a­trist.

Alois Nduna (26) from Matanga Vil­lage in Gokwe made head­lines when he sent po­lice of­fi­cers flee­ing from Mvuma Po­lice Sta­tion af­ter vom­it­ing blood and lick­ing it up.

He is ac­cused of killing at least 13 peo­ple and suck­ing their blood vam­pire style.

Nduna ter­rorised in­mates at Khami Prison where he has been re­manded as he would in­ex­pli­ca­bly wake up in a dif­fer­ent cell or have the num­ber 666Bi­b­li­cal mark of the beast/anti Christ that Chris­tians be­lieve sig­nals the end of the world- mys­te­ri­ously in­scribed on his back with blood.

He was at the High Court on Thurs­day last week fac­ing a charge of killing a Bu­l­awayo woman last year and steal­ing her Nokia X2 phone. Bu­l­awayo High Court Judge Jus­tice Martin Makonese said he needed a sec­ond opin­ion from a dif­fer­ent psy­chi­a­trist be­fore Nduna’s trial could com­mence. The con­tents of the ini­tial psy­chi­atric re­port were not re­vealed in court. Jus­tice Makonese said the court could not rely on one re­port and he de­ferred the mat­ter in­def­i­nitely. The Zim­babwe Pris­ons and Cor­rec­tional Ser­vices (ZPCS) re­gional pub­lic re­la­tions of­fi­cer for Mata­bele­land, Prin­ci­pal Prison Of­fi­cer Garainashe Moyo re­cently told The Chronicle that Nduna, alias Jack­son Moyo, was be­ing held alone in a cell be­cause of a bizarre se­ries of events. “I can con­firm that my of­fice has re­ceived a re­port from the prison (Khami) that there was an in­mate who was vom­it­ing and lick­ing blood. Last week, it was re­ported that the in­mate, whose name I don’t have off­hand, was found in his cell with his hands tied from be­hind and a num­ber in­scribed on his back.

“His cell walls were splashed with blood and his Bi­ble was tat­tered. Upon be­ing asked by prison of­fi­cers what had hap­pened, the in­mate said he had been ini­ti­ated into a Sa­tanism cult,” said Moyo at the time.

Nduna is on re­mand at Mlon­dolozi prison at the Khami Prison com­plex that houses pris­on­ers un­der­go­ing psy­chi­atric eval­u­a­tion and fe­male pris­on­ers.

He al­legedly raped and mur­dered a milk ven­dor, Priv­i­lege Mu­tara and dumped her body near Mvuma town in May.

Nduna is al­leged to have raped and killed 12 other women af­ter drain­ing their blood vam­pire style in the Mid­lands, Bu­l­awayo and Masvingo.

“One morn­ing, he woke up with his hands tied from be­hind and had the num­ber 666 writ­ten on his back. He stays alone in the cell, it there­fore de­fies ex­pla­na­tion how he came to have the num­ber on his back be­cause he ob­vi­ously couldn’t have done it him­self,” said a source from the prison.

The source said Nduna bragged that the pre­vi­ous night he had used su­per­nat­u­ral pow­ers to travel across con­ti­nents, out­side the Khami com­plex.

“At times he says he would have gone to the In­dian cap­i­tal New Delhi and the In­dian Ocean to meet with his su­pe­ri­ors,” said the source.

So eerie is the man’s be­hav­iour, said the source, that other in­mates are now liv­ing in fear.

Nduna claimed in court that he was ini­ti­ated into Sa­tanism by some Nige­rian busi­ness­men in Zam­bia last year.

Ac­cord­ing to sources, Nduna last year vom­ited and ate the blood af­ter it had formed a lump in full view of some prison of­fi­cers sta­tioned at Mlon­dolozi Prison.

“The in­mate vom­its blood which in­stantly crys­tallises to form a lump, which he then eats,” said a source. ‘‘His mon­strous act hap­pened in full view of some prison of­fi­cers and some in­mates when he was be­ing ques­tioned by some pris­on­ers about his satanic or­deal. When he started vom­it­ing the blood, some of the prison of­fi­cers who were present took to their heels,” said another source.

Fol­low­ing his ar­rest in May, Nduna ad­mit­ted rap­ing and mur­der­ing Mu­tara be­fore suck­ing her blood vam­pire style.

Nduna once made head­lines af­ter he al­legedly dis­ap­peared from a cleans­ing prayer ses­sion at Prophetic Heal­ing and De­liv­er­ance (PHD) Min­istries in Wa­ter­falls, Harare. - @thamamoe
