SUSPECTED blood-sucking rapist and killer Alois Tapiwa Nduna (26), alias Jackson Moyo, appeared at the Gweru Magistrates’ Court yesterday facing five counts of murder.

He also faces two counts of attempted murder.

Nduna, of Matanga Village under Chief Jiri in Gokwe, was not asked to plead when he appeared before magistrate Ms Judith Taruvinga for initial remand.

He was remanded in custody to May 26.

Prosecutor Mr Pride Gomera alleges that on October 9, 2013 Nduna was hired by four siblings – Precious, Sheila, Portia and Vheneka Chimonga – to kill their aunt, Ruramai Zifungo, whom they accused of being a witch.

It is alleged Nduna went to Zifungo’s homestead two days later and forcibly gained entry into her bedroom.

He attacked the woman with an unknown object, cracking her skull and inflicting deep lacerations to her face. She died in the process.

After getting his payment, Nduna reportedly fled to Zambia.

On March 23 Nduna allegedly raped and murdered a milk vendor, Privilege Mutara.

He dumped her body in a nearby bush after sucking the victim’s blood.

The following day Nduna attempted to kill Gladys Gwasunda, who works for Chicken Slice in Mvuma.

He ran out of luck when a passer-by heard noise and rescued the girl.

On April 14 this year at around 4pm, the accused met the now deceased Rita Phiri along a footpath between Zvishavane Hospital and Prince Street.

The court heard that Nduna proposed to her and offered to pay $3 for sex to which she agreed.

Mr Gomera said the two went to a secluded place and had sex after which Nduna strangled her and dumped her body in a nearby bush.

The body was later discovered by a passer-by when it was in an aanced state of decomposition.

Nduna used the same method on an unidentified woman he met near Comoil in Zvisha- vane.

Mr Gomera further alleges that on April 29 Nduna approached one Soneni Moyo who was at Mberengwa turn-off along Zvishavane-Bulawayo highway and proposed to her.

Nduna offered to walk her home and after about 4km he strangled her and dumped her body in a nearby bush.

He stole money and two cellphones from her which he later sold in Masvingo.

Nduna attacked another woman, Marceline Shoko, and left her for dead.

Shoko was discovered by a passers-by who rushed her to hospital.

Meanwhile, Nduna allegedly caused a stir in police holding cells when he vomited blood and licked it up.

His shirt had fresh bloodstains when he appeared in court yesterday.

He is said to have committed similar crimes in Hwange, Bulawayo, Chipinge and Masvingo and was last week taken by Bulawayo CID homicide for indica- tions.

He claims to be an agent of a satanic cult which thrives on human blood.
