Christian persecution in Uganda is generally not government and law enforcement action, such as what we see in many other countries. Instead, converts to Christianity and Christians who proselytize are often targeted and harassed.
All this happens despite the fact that Christians make up around 85% of Uganda’s population (there is a tiny minority of around 35,000 Orthodox Christians in that nation). The Order continues to pray for peace and safety for the Orthodox Christians and all Christians of Uganda.

“Family of Assaulted Pastor Attacked Again by Area Muslims,” Morning Star News, January 28, 2021:
NAIROBI, Kenya (Morning Star News) – Muslim villagers on Sunday (Jan. 24) attacked the wife and children of a pastor in eastern Uganda who is still receiving hospital treatment for a previous assault, sources said.
Nearly four weeks after the assault on pastor Moses Nabwana and his wife, Lovisa Naura, in Nankodo Sub-County, Kibuku District on Dec. 27, three area Muslims broke into their home at about 4:20 a.m. on Sunday, injuring two of their children and the mother of eight who is still recovering from the prior beating, she said.
“I heard loud noises and plates being broken. The children and I woke up,” Naura told Morning Star News. “The attackers had broken the door and entered in. One started strangling me, while another threw one of my daughters outside through the window and broke the skin on her leg.”
Her brother-in-law and his family rushed over, and the Muslims fled, she said.
“The assailants left behind a Somali sword, which I think they possibly had planned to use to rape and then kill me,” she said.
Naura said her 10 year-old daughter sustained a deep cut on her knee, and her 12-year-old daughter suffered an eye injury. Naura has neck pain and was still suffering from the prior assault, an area source said.
Previously a group of area Muslims beat Pastor Nabwana with sticks and a blunt object on his head, back, stomach and chest, and he returned to a hospital in Kumi on Jan. 15, Naura said….
