A Christian Ugandan woman has been beaten to death by Muslim extremists for her Christian faith.
The Christian Post reports that Mamwikomba Mwanika, who was the mother of eight children, was dragged from her home and violently hacked to death by her attackers.
The angry mob came to Mwanika’s house looking for her husband, but finding he was not home, they seized Mwanika and “dragged our mother outside the house as she screamed and cried for help,” her 13-year-old daughter said.
Last month, Muslims had also killed the brother of George Mwanika, Mamwikomba’s husband, for his Christian faith.
“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 attackers told Mamwikomba before they seized her.
Mamwikomba’s husband arrived soon after and found her lying in a pool of blood near the house. She was still alive, but died before reaching the hospital.
“I know that the attackers are looking for me," George Mwanika said. "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 Christian Post reports that although the majority of people in Uganda are Christian, there is a growing threat of Islamic extremism in the country.
