This week Beth and Wendy dive into Part 2 of our telling and discussion of Sister Credonia Mwerinde, the high priestess and co-founder of the Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God, a cult that murdered at least 900 people.
We get into our listener letters and thank all of our supports (5:15) finish out the timeline (9:41). Then, we get into the investigation (22:22) followed by “Where are they now?”(25:55). We get into our Take Aways and what we think made Mwerinde snap (31:07).
As usual we close out the show with some shout outs (45:44), crime news (42:24) and of course, some tips on how not to get murdered).
Thanks for listening! This is a weekly podcast and new episodes drop every Thursday, so until next time… look alive guys, it’s crazy out there!
