A mob of muslims, in rural eastern Uganda, cornered and beat a woman to death after she had converted to Christianity, according to reports.
Mamwikomba Mwanika, a mother of eight, was dragged out her house by the mob. Her husband was at work during this time.
The mob cornered her, throwing stones, and hitting her until she died.
The woman’s brother-in-law was reportedly killed a 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 he wasn’t home.
The husband came home to find his wife in a pool of blood. He understood right away what had happened, as he has seen it happen to family and friends before.
He also says that he knows that he is next, and that the same attackers are looking for him.
