THE case of a Gokwe man dubbed “vampire killer” after drinking the blood of his murder victims collapsed on Friday after two psychiatrists testified that he was mentally ill.

Alois Nduna, alias Jackson Moyo aged 26, of Matanga village under Chief Jiri in Gokwe, allegedly raped, killed and drained the blood of 12 women in central and southern Zimbabwe.

Last month, magistrate Judith Taruvinga, said Nduna should be examined by two separate psychiatrists before his trial could start.

On Friday Taruvinga said Nduna should be sent to Mlondolozi mental institution after the doctors said he was not fit to stand trial.

While in remand at Whahwa prison where he was examined, Nduna was said to have threatened to suck the blood of other inmates, saying he particularly wanted the blood of females.

When he first appeared before Masvingo magistrate earlier this month, Nduna told the court he was a Satanist and that he drank the blood of his victims to make him ger.

Nicknamed “vampire killer”, Nduna stunned the court when he revealed that he had actually killed 13 women after getting instructions from the Universal Church.

He also revealed that he had been instructed to collect blood from his victims by the same church.

Nduna, who faced 12 counts of murder and robbery, allegedly raped his victims before killing them.

He confessed to sucking blood from women in Masvingo, Midlands and Bulawayo and also made stunning revelations that he killed a Mashava woman, Beauty Hove, by sucking her blood until she died.
