Namumbeiza Swabura, a Muslim convert to Christianity, succumbed to food poisoning after enduring months of constant threats from local Muslims after she and her husband accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior in August 2014, sources informed Morning Star News.
Swabura is survived by her husband, Mugoya Muhammad, and her 11 children, the youngest being a 5-month-old infant.
Sources allege that Swabura’s sister-in-law, Jafaran Wowa, visited Swabura at her home around 4 p.m. last Wednesday. Wowa cooked for her but did not consume the meal herself.
When Muhammed arrived back at the house shortly after his sister left, Swabura was complaining about an extreme stomach pain. The report states that Swabura told her husband that the pain started almost immediately after she ate the meal that Wowa cooked for her.
Since he was financially unable to pursue legal action for the loss of his wife, Muhammad buried Swabura the very next day.
“We are fearing for our lives as the Muslims are threatening to kill us if we continue in Christianity,” Muhammad told Morning Star News in an interview in May.
