Much-loved Ugandan pastor among dead in Kampala World Cup terror blast

By Dan Wooding
Founder of ASSIST Ministries

KAMPALA, UGANDA (ANS) — A much-loved Ugandan pastor was amongst those killed in last Sunday’s terror blasts that ripped through two locations while people were watching the World Cup final game on television

Peter Mutabazi and his wife Alice

He was Peter Mutabazi who pastored a local Pentecostal church at Bwaise, in the suburbs of Kampala.

The pastor was amongst the 76 people who were killed, while hundreds were injured.

“On that fatal night, Peter and some visiting American missionaries were seated in the Ethiopian Restaurant where they had gone for dinner and also to watch the World Cup Final,” said Alex Mitala, General Overseer, National Fellowship of Born Again Pentecostal Churches in Uganda.

“Al Shabaab, a terrorist group of extreme Islamic Somalis, claimed responsibility for the bomb blast in which Peter died and also five of the missionaries were seriously injured. The same group are believed to be connected to Al Qaeda.

“Peter left behind Alice, his widow and five children. His burial took place on July 13th, in Mpigi District Central Uganda, where I originally planted that local church and later handed it over to P.A.G mission. We shall all miss Peter.”

On his Facebook page, Peter Mutabazi wrote, “We live in one of the biggest slums of Kampala the capital city of Uganda.”

Now his many friends in that slum area will be mourning the untimely death of their friend.

“Former Raleigh man dies in Uganda bombings”

SNIPPET: “KAMPALA, Uganda — An American who recently lived in Raleigh for a year was the lone American killed when explosions tore through crowds watching the World Cup final Sunday at a rugby club and an Ethiopian restaurant in Kampala, Uganda, killing at least 74 people.

Nathan Henn, 25, who worked with Invisible Children, a San Diego-based aid group that helps child soldiers in Africa, was killed on the rugby field. Henn was a native of Wilmington, Del., but his family moved to Raleigh in 2007, and he lived here for about a year, his sister, Brynne Henn, said this morning in a telephone interview.”
