ICC Note:
On April 6th, two Islamic sisters attended a church service in Kawaga after sharing a prophetic dream they say called them to Christ. Local Muslims who witnessed the girls entering the church reported their whereabouts to their father who proceeded to beat the girls after arriving home, fatally striking one of the two sisters. Overtaken by the act, the father ordered his surviving daughter, Hasifa, to fetch water for him to perform Islamic ablution; instead, she fled to the home of a church elder who has since arranged safe housing for her in an undisclosed Christian community.
04/21/2014 Uganda (Morning Star News) – The 17-year-old daughter of a Muslim man in Uganda was able to attend one church service this month before he killed her for leaving Islam, sources said.
Abdul Hakim Ibanda of Kamuli town in eastern Uganda beat Nanvunani Shamimu and her 19-year-old sister, Nawudo Hasifa, with a blunt instrument after learning that they had attended the church service on April 6, Hasifa told Morning Star News.
The two sisters turned to the Christian faith after they had the same dream the night of April 4, she said.
“We both saw a man dressed in white clothes, telling us to go and be prayed for in the church, but he did not tell us which church to go to,” Hasifa said.
On April 6 they attended United Believers Church in Kawaga, Kamuli District. “On Sunday morning we arrived at the United Believers Church and straight away went to see the pastor and explained to him about the dream and that we were ready to be Christians,” she said. “The pastor prayed for us to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior of our lives. After prayers we then went to church, where the pastor introduced us to the church and that we were new members of the church. The church faithful were cheerful to receive us.”
