A group of radical Muslims beat and drowned a 25-year-old pastor and a 22-year-old parishioner in retaliation for preaching the gospel to local people in Uganda.
Pastor Peter Kyakulaga of the Church of Christ and parishioner Tuule Mumbya killed them on a lake in Lugonyola village.
According to The Christian Post, the killings occurred in late June; however, reports came in this week.
It is believed that a day before the killings took place, Muslims had issued warnings to the pastor and members of the congregation to stop evangelizing.
«We have discovered that their mission is not to fish, but to hold Christian meetings and then convert Muslims to Christianity,» one of the Muslims told Christian evangelists; this according to a relative of the pastor.
«We are not going to take this mission of yours lightly. This is our last warning to you.»
God is the one who will do justice
David Nabyoma, chairman of the local council of Namuseru village, where the church is located, was informed about the attack.

«They were calling for help, saying that Muslims from Lugonyola had invaded the area around the lake, and several Christians were reportedly injured, including my son»; said Nabyoma, a member of the Church of Uganda.
«We immediately rushed to the scene of the incident with several Christians. We rented four boats and drove to the lake and discovered that two of the Christians had been beaten; and drowned in the lake and died instantly».
According to the situation, the country’s church leaders asked the Christians not to take any action and to keep praying.
It is true that Uganda is a predominantly Christian country, with Muslims representing only 12% of the population. However, Christians have faced attacks for their faith in Muslim-majority areas.
