The treasurer of CAPA — the Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa — was murdered last week at her home outside of Nairobi.
The CAPA website reports that on 8 June 2013, Grace Wambua (51) was hacked to death by a farmhand at her Kinaanie farm in Machakos. Local press reports state Ms. Wambua was slashed across her neck and her hands nearly severed as she sought to ward off the blows.
Her neighbor, Elizabeth Miller, found Ms. Wambua near-death and drove her to a Nairobi hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The CAPA statement said Ms. Wambua “was the Manager of ACK Guest House Nairobi and a dedicated CAPA Treasurer since February 2012.”
Her funeral was held on 18 June at All Saints Cathedral in Nairobi. Her killer remains at large.
