Nairobi, Kenya, November 26, 2020 (Morning Star News) – the Muslim relatives of a former sheikh in eastern Uganda who refused to renounce Christ killed his 6-year-old son on Monday (Nov. 23), two days after Islamists in the western part of the country killed a pastor and his 12-year-old son, sources said. Following a two-hour meeting with Muslim relatives in Buseta Sub-County’s Kameme village, Kibuku District, former sheikh (Islamic teacher) Emmanuel Hamuzah refused their demand to renounce Christ, the 38-year-old convert told Morning Star News. Shortly afterward his brothers, sisters and paternal uncle attacked him outside his house, he said.
His 6-year-old son, Ibrahim Mohammad, was outside with him when the five relatives approached at about 6:30 p.m., with one saying, “You should renounce this Christian faith, which is a disgrace to our family,” Hamuzah said.
“I refused to yield to their demand, and they started fighting me with kicks and blows,” Hamuzah told Morning Star News. “I tried to defend myself while the other attackers were stepping on my child’s neck, suffocating him.”
The assailants fled when neighbors rushed toward the commotion, and his son died before he could obtain medical help, he said. The family has not reported the assault to police out of fear of further violence by the assailants.
Hamuzah, who with his wife has three other children ages 10, 8 and 4, put his faith in Christ two years ago.
PASTOR AND SON SLAIN
Near Uganda’s western-most point, pastor Wilson Niwamanya was on his way home to Kabale with his 12-year-old son after delivering Christian literature along the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo when radical Muslims stopped them near Kisoro on Saturday evening (Nov. 21), sources said.
The four Muslim extremists stopped Pastor Niwamanya and his son, Simon Peter Bizimaana (local middle children take the names of grandparents rather than their parents’ names), as they rode on motorcyels. The pastor’s son was on a motorcyle driven by a 15-year old Christian worker whose name is withheld for security reasons.
The worker said the assailants had blunt objects and a horn-hilted dagger known as a Somali sword. Read more …
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
