MOMBASA, Kenya — Suspected Islamic extremists are suspected of killing a church leader in Mombasa, Kenya, for sharing his faith near a mosque and alerting authorities to security threats.
In the Majengo area of the coastal city where leaders at the Masjid Musa Mosque were suspected of training violent jihadists, 59-year-old Lawrence Kazungu Kadenge, an assistant pastor for Glory of God Ministries Church, was killed Feb. 2. Saying they were looking for militant equipment, authorities had raided the mosque that day, reportedly leaving a Muslim man and a police officer dead.
Area Christians believe hard-line Muslims were upset at Kadenge for evangelizing near the mosque and for informing authorities about security threats, a Christian leader said.
