Mob attacks Naivasha ‘vampire’ after release from jail
Naivasha’s self-confessed ‘vampire’ Geoffrey Matheri alias Fungo was on Monday rushed to hospital in critical condition after villagers in Kinangop attacked, him days after he was set free by a court for lack of evidence.
Irate Rwanyambo residents cornered the 31-year-old where he had gone to visit members of his family.
He was rushed to Engineer Hospital with severe injuries and then later referred to Naivasha District hospital.
According to his relatives, Matheri visited them soon after his release fearing for his life.
“He spent three days in the house saying he was afraid of being seen by people,” said on relative.
His relative told Citizen Digital that Matheri was attacked by a mob on the first day he ventured out, adding that some of the attackers may have been police officers.
“When he got out of the house in the evening he was attacked by a mob and gravely hurt. He says he was hit on the head by a police officer but we cannot confirm that,” said the relative.
Matheri was arrested in 2008 after two women were rescued from a house in Naivasha’s Kihoto Slums in deplorable health condition and told police they had been kidnapped, raped and drugged by the suspect who drained and drunk their blood as they watched.
