Munyonyo Martyrs' Shrine is the starting point of the last journey of young Christians for their execution in Namugongo on 3 June 1886. Having been sentenced to death in Munyonyo on 26th May (Wednesday), the condemned then began upon their own walk to Calvary – a two day journey to Namugongo, which they reached on 27th May (Thursday). Some had already been killed in Munyonyo, others were killed along the way, but the majority were burned alive in Namugongo on 3rd June.
