Museveni Pledge to Publish Deceased Nsereko Mutumba’s Pending Works


President Yoweri Museveni has pledged to facilitate the publication of deceased Kayunga RDC Hajji Nsereko Mutumba’s unpublished works.

Museveni, who is represented by the Public Service Minister. Hon. Mululi Mukasa at the event to mark 40 days since Mutumba died, said that he will provide support for his unpublished works.

“The government established an open office that publishes all the achievements attained during the reigns of NRM and the late Mutumba did a lot of social services, which he documented while operating the Foundation for Islamic Development- FIDO, a local NGO and as a Spokesperson of UMSC, so these need to be published,” he said.

Muruli also promised to present to President Museveni the request of the deceased’s family that another family member is picked to replace him as a reward for his support to the NRM government.

In attendance were RDCs, Sheikh Hussein Rajab Kakooza, the former Chief Kadhi/ Director of Sharia, Sheikh Imran Ssali, the UMSC Dawah- Islamic Propagation Secretary, Hon. Medard Ssegona, the Busiro East MP, Sheikh Muhammad Wasswa Ssemakadde, the Kadhi of Bukomasimbi Muslim District, Cultural heads, prominent members of the Business fraternity, and Imams among others.

Speaking at the function, Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubaje, the Mufti of Uganda urged Muslims to preserve their heritage by writing historical records as a source of knowledge and reference for future generations.

In a Speech equally carried by Sheikh Muhammad Ali Waiswa, the 2nd Deputy Mufti, Mubajje said it’s good for the preservation of the heritage since it keeps the culture alive.

“Today we hear those individuals within Muslim community who masquerade that they are knowledgeable and yet they only preach divisive messages and hatred.” Sheikh Waiswa remarked.

He added that “Mutumba’s death was a great loss to the Muslim community. We are yet to see another person of his calibre,” he said

“And this call for solid unity, capacity building in collections of our past knowledge, art facts, records, and items for preservation because a community without knowing its past can hardly move forward.”

Lastly, Sheikh Waiswa requested the late Mutumba’s close family members to liaise with UMSC so that all the works he authored like Unsung Muslim heroes are published.
