Just last month, in Uganda, the Muslim father of a 20-year-old convert to Christianity, killed him for refusing to recant his faith in Jesus Christ, sources said. Tabiruka Tefiiro, his son, had put his faith in Christ in 2019. At that time his father drove him from their home, and he went to Kampala, where he worked in a hotel. . His mother later spent several months trying to convince him to return home to reconcile with his father, which Tefiiro resisted until he eventually consented to return on Sunday, August 1.
His father was away from home until Saturday, August 14, when he called a family meeting to question his son, Tefiiro, about whether he had come back to Islam. The son replied, “I am mature enough to join any religion that I feel like because I am above 18 years old. I want to confirm that I am saved by the grace of God. I can’t renounce my Christian faith now or in the future.” The father became angry but remained silent as he left the house, the sister said. The following day the father returned with a knife and hoe and started hitting Tefiiro, his son, who managed to escape to a neighbor’s house.
Reports state that the father then pursued his son and forcefully entered the house where he sought refuge. He then removed him back to the homestead, where he tied him up and started beating him with the hoe until his son fell to the ground unconscious. He then hanged him up and proceeded to hang his son with a rope by the neck, sources said. The father, Kasimu Kawona, was subsequently charged, not with murder, but rather with a lesser charge of manslaughter, because he killed his son in anger for leaving Islam to become a Christian.
This assault was the latest of many instances of persecution of Christians in Uganda that Morning Star News has documented. And in light of the current trend, it surely won’t be the last. What happened to Tefiiro totally reflects what Jesus said, “For I have come to turn ‘a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. A man’s enemies will be the members of his own household.” Let us pray that the stand Tefiiro took will challenged others there in Uganda to take their stand for the Lord regardless of the cost. Amen!
