Police in Naivasha have arrested a Church Minister implicated in alleged incidents of rape, torture and drinking human blood.

New Hope for All Nations Church Bishop Jeremiah Paragyo (25yrs) was arrested Thursday morning after a suspect believed to be a serial killer and rapist claimed he had requested him to secure some human blood for him.
