In Summary:
“I don’t think the attack had anything to do with banditry since they didn’t bother with valuables in the church. We are frightened by this kind of attack and would like the government to take quick action,”

One person has been killed and two others severely wounded when unidentified people raided the Gilgal Christian Church early yesterday morning.

The attackers carried traditional weapons including pangas. The incident occurred at Pasiansi suburb in Ilemela District, Mwanza.

Mwanza regional police commander Ernest Mangu confirmed the incident. He named the deceased as Elias Meshack, a resident of Ilemela, and injured persons as Mr Elias Maskauzi and Mr Tumsifu Pungu.
