Kiruhura: Muslims asked to unite, stop fighting
Sheikh Abdallah Ibrahim Ssemambo, the Deputy Mufti of Uganda from Uganda Muslim supreme council, has called upon Muslims in Kiruhura and Kazo districts to have unity, one voice as well as stopping fighting against each other.
Speaking at the meeting of these Muslims at Rushere mosque, Kiruhura Muslim district headquarters on Friday, Sheikh Ssemambo told them that violence will not benefit them and encouraged them to champion peaceful living amongst themselves.
The coming of Sheikh Ssemambo comes after the frequent fights among Muslim leaders in these two districts which later led to the vote of no confidence to their District Kadhi Sheik Ausi Muyingo accusing him of irregular work for the Muslim community.
Sheikh Ssemambo chose the interim District Kadhi who will be working for a mean time until they elect their own leaders.
However, Abdul Hakim Turyakira, the former chairman of Muslims in Kiruhura district noted that sheik Ausi Muyingo, former district Kadhi should return to the office.
Bakunda George, the Kiruhura Resident district commissioner (RDC) said that security will not allow the Muslims to fight each other.
