A church bishop has reportedly lost his life after a young boy hacked him to death as he was preaching on the road with his congregation members.

A Kenyan bishop was hacked to death in Juba, South Sudan on June 24 for preaching ‘too loudly’ during his morning prayers, according to a report by the Sudan Tribune.
It was gathered that Bishop Joel Mwendwa was leading a congregation of Kenyans when his assailant described by police as “a boy” and a neighbour of his church along Bilpam Road in Munuki estate, Juba, killed him using a panga during the 6.30am prayers.
South Sudan police spokesman, Brigadier General Daniel Justin, confirmed the incident.
 
“As the congregation was going on with morning prayers, a man in the neighbourhood of the church walked to the front of the church with a machete and attacked the bishop. He slashed him several times before he fell down.
The suspect then ran to a nearby house from where police smoked him out. He confessed to committing the offence, claiming the bishop has been a nuisance to them with his morning prayers,” said Brigadier Daniel, adding that the boy will be arraigned in court to answer to murder charges.
Bishop Mwendwa, whose church had a congregation of over 3,000 faithful, hails from Wote in Makueni County and has been preaching in South Sudan for over 10 years. He leaves behind a widow and two children.
According to the Sudan Tribune, witnesses said the boy often smoked illicit substances and that the two started having differences when the bishop travelled back from Kenya only to find that he (boy) had stolen the church’s bamboo fence.
Tabitha Mutero, the director and organising secretary of Kenyans in South Sudan told The Nairobian that, “It is unfortunate the man of God was killed doing what he knows best. We condemn the act and appeal to the government through the ministry of Foreign Affairs to follow up on this matter with the South Sudan government”.
Mutero asked the government in Juba to take care of foreigners as it takes care of its people and complained that since January, 90 Kenyan drivers and conductors in addition to businessmen have lost their lives in South Sudan.
 
“In Kenya, we live with them as brothers and sisters, yet many Kenyans face untold challenges in the hands of the South Sudanese in their country,” she said.

The Sultan, who stated this at the fourth quarterly meeting of the Nigeria Inter-Religious Council in Abuja, said bandits were fast overrunning the North as residents slept with their eyes open.

While describing the North as the worst place to live, he said that bandits had become daring.

He said they moved from house to house, village to village, market to market, with AK-47 rifles openly, purchasing foodstuffs and other items and even collecting change without any challenge from the security agencies.

The foremost traditional ruler stated that the security system in the North had completely collapsed.

He said, “Security situation in Northern Nigeria has assumed a worrisome situation. Few weeks ago, over 76 persons were killed in a community in Sokoto in a day. I was there with the governor to commiserate with the affected community.

“Unfortunately, you don’t hear these stories in the media because it’s in the North. We have accepted the fact that the North does not have strong media to report the atrocities of these bandits.

“People think North is safe but that assumption is not true. In fact, it’s the worst place to be in this country because bandits go around in the villages, households and markets with their AK 47 and nobody is challenging them.

“They stop at the market, buy things, pay and collect change, with their weapons openly displayed. These are facts, I know because I am at the centre of it.

“I am not only a traditional ruler, I am also a religious leader. So, I am in a better place to tell the story. I can speak for the North in this regard because I am fully aware of the security challenges there. We have to sincerely and seriously find solutions to the problem, otherwise, we will find ourselves soon, in a situation where we would lose sleep because of insecurity.
