The leader of the Muslim fraternity in Uganda his Eminence Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubajje has implored the faithful to observe peace and justice, saying that will lead to development.
The Mufti, who arrived at the Old Kampala national mosque at about 8.30am, led the morning prayers to commemorate Eid-el-Adha, the Muslim Festival of Sacrifice.
“We need to work together with the community and stakeholders to rescue our country from all injustices,” Sheikh Mubajje told the thousands attending the prayers.
On a sad note, Sheikh Mubajje extended condolences to the family and relatives of the late sheikh Ahmed Siraj Kwikiriza, who perished in an accident this morning in Mbarara. Sheikh Kwikiriza’s son also later died after being rushed to Mbarara hospital.
The deceased Sheikh had been expected to lead prayers at Abu-Bakr mosque in Kakoba.
