U.S missionary killed by remote Indian tribe visited Cape Town recently
The 27-year-old Christian missionary John Chau who was killed while allegedly attempting to convert one of the world's last remaining isolated tribes to Christianity has a South African connection.
Chau is believed to have been killed by members of the isolationist Sentinelese tribe on a tiny, remote island in the Bay of Bengal. The tribesman shot at him with a bow and arrow, piercing a Bible he was carrying.
Chau found fishermen to take him to the island, and after a few trips he told them that he wouldn't return. The fisherman saw a bunch of tribesmen dragging Chau's body across and burying it.
Chau is not the first person to fall victim to the Sentinelese after intruding on their island, which it is illegal for outsiders to land on.
Recently, Chau visited South Africa, Boosmansbos Wilderness, spent the night in a wild stone hut and waded through fields of flowers. Also he took pictures when he was in Cape Town. He posted photos of Cape Town on his Instagram account.
A Capetonian friend posted the following Instagram post about him:
