A Christian evangelist who led several Muslims to faith in Christ has been brutally martyred in an eastern district of Uganda.

Sources say Ronald Twinomugisha had received text message threats before he was hacked to death on March 30. He was just 32.

Ronald had moved to Iganga district in February 2022, and by the following year had led four Muslims to Christ. These converts have all fled elsewhere, after receiving threats from their own families.

‘In March 2023, Twinomugisha came to my office and reported threatening messages from Muslims,’ area chairperson Gozan Waiswa told Morning Star News. ‘Their complaint was him changing Muslims to Christianity.’

On the night he was killed neighbours saw men in Islamic attire enter Ronald’s home, at about 7:00 pm. The following morning neighbours found his body in a pool of blood outside his compound. According to one source, the attackers had left a note saying, ‘We learned what you have been teaching, and misleading Muslims and leading them to a wrong religion from the course and path of Allah.’ Local Ugandan police have launched a hunt for the four suspects.
