KADAMA, Uganda — A 20-year-old Ugandan man who had just put his faith in Christ was intercepted by Muslim relatives on his way home and beaten.
On Feb. 6, Sadi Bwanga, the grandson of a former Muslim sheikh, accepted Jesus during a church service in Kadama in Kibuku District. An evangelist was taking Bwanga home after the church service. Muslim relatives intercepted the two, took Bwanga to the roadside and told the evangelist to leave, according to Morning Star News.
Later, with assistance from a pastor and others, the evangelist found Bwanga, who had received serious injuries to his head and legs. The group took Bwanga to Kadama Hospital, where Bwanga remained until Feb. 14. After his discharge from the hospital, Bwanga was staying in an undisclosed location and a nurse was monitoring his treatment.
Uganda’s laws and constitution allow freedom of religion, including the right to convert from one faith to another. Christianity is the professed faith of more than 84% of the population, with an estimated 12%–14% of Ugandans professing Islam.
