“This is late Pastor Uhembe Jacob, the man wrongly accused of stealing people’s manhood in Daudu.
“After burning all his houses, church and all his other properties, they kidnapped, murdered him in cold blood for a sin he knew nothing about and buried his body in a shallow grave.
“His only sin was that he was making rapid progress!
“His spirit will continue to torment those murderers who perpetrated this dastardly act and Daudu will remain a cursed land until the killers are brought to justice.
“A people whose hands are stained with the blood of innocent souls will never make progress.”
