Vampire related activity might have been more common during the Middle Ages, however if you were under the impression that the “mobs with forks and torches” nights were over I`m sorry to say that we were all wrong.
Bloodsuckers are currently being hunted in a mountainous region of Malawi.
Just as some regions become more and more advanced, others are determined to follow the age-old traditions!
In a saga that has been unfolding over the last weeks, last night added 2 victims in the region of Mulanje – Malawi. This raises the total numbers of “bloodsucker” victims to 6 – over 3 separate incidents!
They were apparently burned alive by a violent group of people who blamed them for unconfirmed attacks.
Police spokesman in Mulanje, Gresham Ngwira, confirmed the killings, saying “Two people were killed by a mob for allegedly being bloodsuckers,” he said.
Stories of vampires sucking people’s blood in the dead of the night have been circulating in Mulanje for days!
The UNAMAPOPA [as vampires are reffered to in the region] had been terrorizing the locals with their bizarre methodology – said to involve somehow disabling their target using an electrical charge or chemical substance, removing their blood via an unidentified instrument, and then vanishing in the form of a cat or dog.
Currently 20 suspects are in police custody at Mulanje Police Station following the killing of three strangers, arson and vandalism.
Furthermore, the UK volunteers that are serving in Malawi have been advised by the Embassy to avoid the area due to ongoing acts of vigilante justice aimed at the foreigners due to the vampire rituals rumors.
