Bunyoro-Tooro Regional Kadhi Sacked over incompetence


A while ago, allegations of incompetence, abuse of office, causing financial loss as well as tarnishing the image of the Islamic faith were raised against Bunyoro regional Kadhi Sheik Muhammad Irumba.

This brought to the attention of the Supreme Mufti His Eminence Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubaje who with immediate effect ordered investigations into the matter.

The investigation results have since resulted in the announcement of the sacking of Sheikh Irumba.

The Supreme Mufti revealed the decision during a regional council meeting held at Bwikya hill in Hoima Oil City on Friday.

The Mufti appointed in acting capacity Sheikh Abdul Hakim Kirarira, the Kadhi Kasese Muslim District to meanwhile take over Bunyoro-Tooro Region.

The meeting also cautioned the Regional Treasurer Yahaya Byarufu and directed him to answer charges of insubordination.

The Mufti, however, reminded Muslims that Hajji Majidu Bagonza is the official chairman of Bunyoro -Toro Region known by the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council-UMSC.

The meeting also resolved that Bunyoro Regional Secretary Rashid Kagwa be investigated by the regional secretary for holding two jobs contrary to the Supreme council laws.

In attendance were; His Eminence Sheikh Muhammad Ali Waiswa the 2nd Deputy Mufti also in charge of Bunyoro- Toro affairs, UMSC Hon. Secretary General Ramathan Mugalu, UMSC Hon. Secretary for Administration Haj Wahab Rugasa, Hon. Secretary for Religious Affairs Sheikh Muhammad Murshid Luwemba, Sheikh Munir Ssebintu Secretary for Halal/ Member Majlis Al Ulama Western, Hon.
