Ugandan pastor Richard Malinga was attacked and killed on the evening of 17 June while travelling home from his church.

The 36-year-old had been conducting prayer sessions with his congregants in Pallisa District when he was attacked as he rode home by motorbike.

The pastor suffered multiple head injuries and his body was found on the road the next morning. His motorbike had been stolen.

The attack is being investigated by police. Authorities say that this is not the first incident of its kind: a few months earlier, a teacher was killed in a similar ambush.

Pray for the family and congregation of Richard Malinga, that God will comfort them in their loss. Ask that violence in Uganda will cease and people will be safe to travel the roads at night.
