Man confessed to abducting women, raping and sucking their blood

20 November 2015, 11:07 Nyamota Obare

Nairobi - The trial of self-confessed serial killer Geoffrey Matheri alias Fongo  linked to a series of murders in Naivasha town six years ago, failed to start in a Nakuru  court as expected yesterday.

Justice Anthony Ndung’u adjourned the case when it became apparent that the hearing could not proceed as the trial magistrate Lady Justice Maureen Odero was engaged elsewhere on official duties.

Justice Ndungu’u directed that the murder case in which three witnesses were set to testify, be heard on November 26.

The defence lawyer who was  present in court did not object to the adjournment.

In the case Mr Geoffrey Matheri alias Fongo is facing trial of the murder of Naomi Wairimu,a crime allegedly committed on August 2008 at his Kihoto house in the outskirts of Naivasha town.

Before he was arrested and charged with the murder,Matheri  shocked the country when he confessed before detectives of abducting women,raping and sucking their blood.

He earned the nickname ‘ Naivasha vampire’ after some  of his victims who were rescued revealed  that he had been sucking blood from those he kidnapped.

In November last 2014,Matheri was found guilty of kidnap by a Naivasha Magistrate and was jailed for four years which he is currently serving at the Naivasha Maximum prisons.

The murder case he is facing kicked off on July this year after dragging on since he pleaded not guilty to the charges  more than five years ago.

In the previous hearing  Justice Anyara Emukule who was handling the case expressed his dissatisfaction in the way the prosecution was handling the case, noting that meaningful progress was yet to be made.
