Kibuli Muslim factions have called upon Muslims across the country to snub the upcoming elections.
The elections are being organized by the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC).
Dr Muhammad Kiggundu Musoke, the Director of Communication at the Kibuli Muslim faction said that their members who subscribe to the Supreme Mufti never participate in the said polls.
“This is therefore to inform and guide all Muslim leaders in the structural hierarchy of the office of the Supreme Mufti’ from the Mosque Imams, County Sheikhs and Supreme District Administrations to refrain from participating in the same,” he said.
This came after the UMSC electoral commission issued a roadmap for the election of new office bearers after the term of office for the current officials expired this year.
On Friday last week, Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubaje, the Mufti of Uganda asked Muslim leaders across the country to rally the faithful under their respective jurisdictions to turn up in big numbers and participate in the elections of their leaders.
The elections are scheduled to start Friday, November 18 2022.
Kiggundu explained that their programmes are clear and guided by their own constitution and work plan.
“All Supreme District Kadhis are hence with advised to convene meetings with county sheikhs and Mosque imams for guidance and advice. All Mosques and imams under the office of the Supreme Mufti are informed to take note,” he stated.
