Pastor Stabbed His Wife In Church Before Killing Himself Over Church Leadership

According to the police, Elijah who is an assistant pastor with the Ground for God’s Gospel Church in Mombasa, left his front row seat and approached his wife, senior pastor Ann Mughoi, on the pulpit and stabbed her with one of the knives he’d hidden in an envelope.

According to Mombasa sub-county police commander Julius Kiragu;

He walked up to his wife while the church was praying as if he wanted to whisper something to her.

Then he took one of the knives and stabbed her (wife) two times. He believed she was dead. He then stabbed himself three times in the stomach and slit his throat.

According to the police, Misiko died instantly from his stab wounds and Mughoi died at a local hospital a few hours later.

It was learnt that, the couple had been engaged in a long-running feud over the ownership and leadership of the church.

Kiragu said;

In 2017, Misiko was detained by the police in Mombasa after his wife alleged he planned to kill her,

Misiko was released the following day after police said they found the accusations untrue. The couple, which had four children, had lived apart since the dispute began two years ago.

She had been trying to stay away from the husband since the dispute over the ownership of the church began.

They had even reported the matter to church leaders but they were unable to resolve the dispute.

Misiko left a 17-page suicide note in which he accused Mughoi of changing ownership of the church, which he said the couple founded, to her name alone.
