A mob of Muslims reportedly beat a woman to death after converting to Christianity.
Mamwikomba Mwanika, a mother of eight, was dragged out of her home and beaten to death after she converted from Islam to Christianity. The woman’s brother-in-law was reportedly killed just one month earlier for doing the same thing.
“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,” the mob told the woman before killing her. Mnwanika’s husband, who was not home at the time, was also a convert. The mob visited the house to confront the husband about his own conversion to Christianity, and they became angry with the woman after learning hat he wasn’t home.
The husband arrived home soon after the murder, and found his wife in a pool of blood. She was still alive when she was found, Christian Post reported, but died before arriving at the hospital.
“I know that the attackers are looking for me,” she allegedly said before dying. “We are seeking God’s protection and His peace. May God give me the courage to continue sharing the love of Christ to those who are lost, as Jesus said we should love our enemies.”
The disturbing incident, which took place in Uganda, sparked outrage among readers on social media.
“Our country is expected to tolerate the actions of these cowards who kill women and children, but we can’t practice our own beliefs?? HOW MAMY MORE WILL DIE, before their stopped?? Rid our country of plague now, it has spread far enough!” one Mad World News reader commented on the site’s Facebook page.
