UGANDA – Christian Mother in Uganda Abused for Conversion

International Christian Concern | Dec. 18, 2018

Although Uganda is a relatively safe country to be a Christian in, many who convert from Islam face persecution. These people, often referred to as MBBs (Muslim Background Believers), often face horrific consequences from local Muslim communities and family members when they decide to follow Christ. This is the case of one such lady named Shakira Wanyenze, as reported by Morningstar News.

Shakira is a mother of four who recently converted to following Christ. When her husband found out, he attacked her and has since threatened to kill her. She then looked for shelter with a local pastor and church, who has also been receiving threats from the husband.
