Scripture Testimony Index stories in this book
The fierce persecution of believers in Uganda started when Mwanga became King; brutally, some were murdered, while others were forced to flee. But like wheat falling to the ground and sprouting again, "the blood of these martyrs became the seed of the Church".
Mwanga thoroughly abused his powers as king of Uganda; he committed heinous atrocities against God's people - many were cruelly executed, some had to flee and not a few were imprisoned.
