The Muslim community in Uganda has been asked to unite and support Muslims who remain incarcerated.
This call was made on Friday during special thanksgiving prayers organized by
the suspects implicated in the murder of the late AIGP Andrew Felix Kaweesi
held at Madiina Mosque in Kasubi, Kampala. During the prayers led by Imam Shafik Kasujja, one of the suspects, asked the
Muslim community to have a heart of forgiveness adding that those who forgive
will always have their sins forgiven by God. Cue in// Naabi....

Noordin Aramathan, Bruhan Balyejusa, Abdul Rashid Mbaziira. Jibril Kalyango,
Yusuf Mugerwa and Yusuf Nyanzi. Kasujja observed that no human being should pass judgement to a fellow human
being for doing bad, but rather forgive and pray
that God passes his judgment. Kasujja, who was released from Luzira prison with six others on bail in
October after spending two and a half years on remand, says that Muslims need to
unite. Kyambadde equally narrated that when they were in Luzira they saw a number of
people especially Muslims who are suffering. He also said that they are leaving in fear of being re-arrested. Anthony Wameli, the suspects’ lawyer pledged his commitment to follow up the
cases of the two suspects Noordin and Mbazira who are still in jail.
