A Christian mother in Uganda was recently beaten to death by a mob of Muslims because she and her family refused to stop preaching the Gospel despite ongoing threats.
According to a report from Morning Star News,Mamwikomba Mwanika, a mother of eight children, was taken from her home in Kalampete village in Kibuku District and killed last week. A short time earlier, her brother-in-law, Samson Nfunyeku, was killed in the same village after debating with Islamic scholars.
The report notes that Mwanika opened the door of her home to a mob of Muslims who demanded to see her husband, also a Christian. However, her husband was not at home, further angering the mob.
“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 Muslims told her.
Mwanika’s 13-year-old daughter told Morning Star News that the mob then “dragged our mother outside the house as she screamed and cried for help.”
A short time later, she was found by her husband and neighbors in a pool of blood near her home. While she was still alive when they found her, Mwanika died en route to the hospital.
“I know that the attackers are looking for me,” her husband, George Mwanika, said following the incident. “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.”
