Persecution is both escalating and spreading throughout Uganda. Islamic radicalisation and guaranteed impunity have combined to make Uganda (which is 84% Christian and 14% Muslim according to the 2014 census) an increasingly dangerous place for Christian evangelists, apologists and converts from Islam. Despite Muslims comprising a small minority, Uganda is a member of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation and the Islamic Development Bank. Thus, Uganda is committed to promoting and defending Islam, which is growing in numbers, increasingly radical and overtly confident. Meanwhile, President Museveni (a professing Christian) appears to have lost his way, trusting less in God and more in corruption – particularly patronage (rewarding supporters) and repression (punishing opponents) as he retains power by any means. Prayers for Uganda, its president and its Church are urgently needed. Please pray.
