(Morning Star News) A mosque leader sent men to rape three female relatives of a church pastor in western Uganda because the imam’s wife put her faith in Christ, sources said.
The imam also sent a Muslim to the church’s worship services in the Kasese area to gather information for a future attack and yesterday (March 10) sent a threatening message to the pastor, sources said.
The Feb. 16 rapes in Musasa village, Kasese District, of the pastor’s relatives, ages 19, 17 and 16, came two days after imam Caled Bwambale Hussein of Kasese municipality learned of the conversion of his wife, Mariam Mbambu, according to church members who said they learned of the imam’s orders from a Muslim sent to their worship services to help plan an attack on the church.
Mbambu put her faith in Christ on Jan. 30 and was baptized on Feb. 6. Her husband learned of her faith on Feb. 14, she said.
