A mob of unidentified Muslims in eastern Uganda beat a Christian woman to death, saying her family hadn’t heeded their warning against converting to Christianity from Islam and preaching the Gospel. Her brother-in-law was killed a month ago for the same reason.
The victim, identified as Mamwikomba Mwanika, the mother of eight, was dragged from her home in Kalampete village in Kibuku District and hacked to death last week, according to Morning Star News.
The mob arrived in the night and asked for her husband, also a convert, and told her, “Your husband has followed the religion of his brother, and we had warned you people to stop these activities, but our message has landed on deaf ears.”
Mwanika’s husband, George Mwanika, was not home at the time. His brother, Samson Nfunyeku, was killed in the same village last month for debating with Islamic scholars.
The mother’s failure to produce her husband angered the mob, and they “dragged our mother outside the house as she screamed and cried for help,” her 13-year-old child was quoted as saying.
When her husband arrived soon thereafter, the family and neighbors looked out for her, and found her in a pool of blood about 100 meters away. She was apparently still alive at the time, according to George Mwanika.
However, she died before reaching the hospital.
