1886 - The killing of the Uganda Martyrs at Namugongo – 1886

Between 1885 and 1887 many more Christian converts were randomly killed. The execution of over 45 (forty-five) Christians at Namugongo on June 3, 1886; was the climax of the campaign against the Christian converts. Some Martyrs were killed using brutal torture, others by beheading, some were speared to death, others were butchered and cut into many small pieces and others were bundled in sticks and slowly burnt to death. All the Christian Martyrs (Catholic and Anglican) were killed in the same place in Namugongo at the spot where St. Charles Lwanga was killed. The last person killed in this crusade, was Jean-Marie Muzeeyi, who was beheaded at Mengo on Jan 27, 1887.
