That headline must astound anyone reading it. But some stories that we cover belong in thriller novels and not as true stories. But the truth is sometimes stranger than fiction.
The next story takes the cake for being so dramatic in its content, it should be turned into a movie starring Edi Gathegi as the hero, anti-hero? Which is it? It will be titled the Muli the Vampire: Days of future past. Hehehe!
The next story is true according to one, Samuel Mwema Muli, 47, who says that he killed more than 7,000 people from various parts of Kenya in less than ten years? His induction into satanism began when he killed his 18 month-old son.
“After graduation, I was employed by a news agency in Nairobi where I overheard fellow scribes talk about devil worshipping. I did not believe the talk. But what attracted me to it was the money.”
Muli says that one Thursday evening, he was walking outside the KPCU Building to his Majengo house when he stumbled upon a letter addressed to him. Is this even possible?
“It was an invitation to cover a fundraising event for street children. I met a shamba boy (name withheld) dressed in black. He welcomed me saying the chief guest expected at the event was a powerful cabinet minister.”
Muli says at the entrance, the shamba boy stripped naked and took him to a woman who introduced herself as Francisca from Kiambu. The madness has only began!
“She pulled a drawer, counted crispy Sh75,000 notes and handed them to me. When I arrived at about 5 pm, I lied to my colleagues that I had hit a jackpot and invited them for drinks.”
As the saying goes, easy come easy go. Muli spent all the money in three days.
He added that when he went back he was told to go and kill his son. He was then given 85,000 shs. He continued:
“I met Francesca once more and she led me to another office where I saw three screens written ‘Kenya,’ ‘Uganda,’ and ‘South Africa. Then a naked woman came, gave me a sharp razor, commanded me to cut the face of my son on the screen and gave me Sh85,000. Three days later, my son died mysteriously. His private parts and tongue were missing when we buried him.”
Three months later he joined the cult and started earning 9,000 shs every Friday. With the money he was making, he claims that he invested in a fleet of vehicles along the Nakuru-Eldoret highway. An enquiry by The Nairobian, however, revealed that the bus company he names is registered at the Kenya Revenue Authority under a different name.
Muli also adds that in 1997 he was involved in the death of his own passengers. He claims:
“I was behind the grisly road accidents between Naivasha and Nakuru. I could board a bus or matatu and alight before the crash.That period, I fed on women breasts and two glasses of human blood daily. By the time I quit, the cult had more than 500 followers in Nairobi. But all my wealth was taken by the cult when I quit.”
Then in 1997, an angel miraculously appeared to him. Haleluuuujia!
“I woke up the following day at a church in Nairobi after falling nude from the ceiling and sending the faithful scampering for safety. The three women who remained covered my nudity. The police were called, but since there was no damage to the ceiling, they left.”
Can you believe this story/ I don’t know?
