Muslim extremists this month reportedly killed a Christian who was effective in leading Muslims to Christ in eastern Uganda, Morning Star News reported.
Engineer Herbert of Sironko District was stabbed to death in the Namakwekwe area of northern Mbale town the night of April 8 while on his way home from work in the town, where he had established a business that supported his evangelization of Muslims, area Christians said. He was 42.
“Herbert was very effective in evangelistic activities,” an area pastor told Morning Star News. “He worked and helped many evangelists in reaching Muslim communities.”
The pastor and an area Christian, also unnamed for security reasons, found Herbert’s body on April 9.
The assault was the latest of many instances of persecution of Christians in Uganda that Morning Star News has documented.
