In a suspected Satanism case, a Mutasa man was recently left for dead after his neighbors reportedly sliced him with a machete, bit him, and sucked his blood as he lay unconscious.
Prior to the attack, Vongai Sarupinda had a misunderstanding with Tafadzwa Makonde. It is said the latter promised to ruthlessly deal with him.
On the fateful day, Sarupinda (26) was left for dead at the roadside by Tafadzwa and his grandmother, Chipo Makonde.
He was only assisted by passersby hours later and taken to Old Mutare Mission Hospital before being referred to Victoria Chitepo Provincial Hospital.
Sarupinda sustained cuts from the machete and bite marks on his face.
When¬†The Weekender¬†visited him at Victoria Chitepo Provincial Hospital,¬† he was having trouble opening his eyes and mouth due to pain.
He said the two sucked his blood. The old woman grabbed him as Tafadzwa struck him with the machete five times on his head.
‚ÄúI lost consciousness and I could feel them biting me and sucking blood from my face. I thought I would die,‚ÄĚ he recounted.
Tafadzwa‚Äôs uncle, Never Makonde, said this was not the first time his nephew has bitten and sucked people‚Äôs blood.
He said each time Tafadzwa fights with someone, he bites them on their face and a¬† lot of people now suspect that he is a Satanist. It is not normal to suck someone‚Äôs blood.
The publication reports that efforts to contact Tafadzwa and his grandmother for a comment proved fruitless as their phones were off.
A police report was made but the pair is yet to be arrested as they are on the run.
