Bible translator killed in Cameroon

A Cameroonian man who supervised Bible translation work in the Mfumte cluster of languages in Northwest Cameroon has been killed, after being kidnapped earlier this month.

Wuwih William Gemuh had been facilitating a workshop to collect words for dictionaries in a number of languages. As he returned home following the workshop on March 17, he was kidnapped by armed men and later killed.

Wuwih leaves behind a wife and six children.

“We are working to bring comfort to the family and colleagues at this very difficult moment,” said Keyeh Emmanuel, general director of the Cameroon Association for Bible Translation and Literacy (CABTAL), a Wycliffe partner organization.

“We invite you to be in prayers for us and for Wuwih’s family.”
