Muslim to Christian convert slain in Uganda for converting Muslims: witness
According to a witness, three guys murdered a Christian convert who had persecuted him for converting Muslims to Christianity in eastern Uganda on Sunday, July 3.
At around 7:15 p.m., a sword was used to kill Simolya Latifu of Molu village, Kasasira Sub-County, Kibuku District, according to a witness. Latifu, 47, was.
Latifu had left the Christ Discipleship Worship Center in Molu for the evening service about 6:30 p.m. Three witnesses spotted a motorcycle and, at 7:15 p.m., heard wailing and screams for help at a nearby marsh, according to one of them.
According to the witness, “the killers were criticizing him for converting Muslims to Christianity.” We camouflaged ourselves in a dense bush.
He said that the accusers, Ali Buyinza, Muhammad Kamunyani, and Jamada Walyomba, were recognized by the witnesses.
The witness, who will not be named for security reasons, claimed that they saw Buyinza slash him in the skull with a sword before they fled. We stayed there for around 30 minutes before gathering the confidence to approach the dead man cautiously and learning that he attended Christ Discipleship Worship Center with us.
At around midnight, they alerted the church’s pastor, Emmanuel Muzei, and reported the incident to the police. Authorities and locals went to the scene early on Monday (July 4) and determined that the body was Latifu’s.
Pastor Muzei reported that furious Christian people of Molu village flocked to the Molu village swamp to grieve the passing of their beloved convert from Islam who had been visiting churches and giving testimony to his conversion to Christianity. “His testimony inspired many Christians in my church and brought many others to Christ. A dynamic evangelist has left us.
According to Pastor Muzei, Buyinza was sought after by locals, so police apprehended him and took him to the Kibuku police station under heavy protection. According to a source, Buyinza reportedly told police, “We warned him to come back to our religion and gave him multiple opportunities, but he turned a deaf ear – we’re glad of killing him.”
The other two suspects were still being sought after by police. According to local sources, the homes of the accused Buyinza, Kamunyani, and Walyomba were burned on Tuesday (July 5).

The Anglican Church of Uganda’s Molu Area Chairperson John Emuga admitted that after witnessing Latifu’s body, he wept.
Residents are urged to help the family of the late Latifu, and Emuga called for the arrest of all the attackers.
The assault was just the most recent of numerous cases of Christian persecution in Uganda that Morning Star News has recorded.
Religious freedom in Uganda is protected by the constitution and other legislation, including the ability to practice one’s religion openly and to convert to another. Only 12% of Uganda’s population identify as Muslims, with concentrations in the east of the country.
