Mubaje used the unity prayers to speak tough against a section of Masaka Muslim faction leaders led by Sheikh Swaibu Ndugga, the rival Masaka district kadhi for alleged fraud. Sheikh Mubaje said that Sheikh Ndugga group had illegally sold several acres of Muslim land located at Bukiragi village in Ntusi Sub County
The Mufti of Uganda Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubajje says Masaka Muslim leaders on are involving in fraudulent sale of properties belonging to Uganda Muslim Supreme Council.
Sheikh Mubaje made the allegation while leading Unity prayers at Kitenga Mosque in Nyendo â€“Masaka Municipality. The Unity prayers are one Mubajje\'s latest attempts to reconcile warring factions among Muslims.
However, Mubaje used the unity prayers to speak tough against a section of Masaka Muslim faction leaders led by Sheikh Swaibu Ndugga, the rival Masaka district kadhi for alleged fraud. Sheikh Mubajje said that Sheikh Ndugga\'s group had illegally sold several acres of Muslim land located at Bukiragi village in Ntusi Sub County.
Mubaje also said Masaka Muslim leaders were illegally collecting money from properties belonging to Uganda Muslim Supreme Council around Masaka main mosque.
Mubaje says although Masaka High Court Registrar JB Ssegilinya issued an order allowing Uganda Muslim Supreme Council back to Masaka central mosque, Swaibu Ndugga and his group used violence to frustrate the court order.

Sheikh Bruhan Kakooza Bagunduuse, the Masaka district Kadhi says his rival Swaibu Ndugga group cannot account for over 200milling shillings collected from Muslim rental houses at Masaka central Mosque.
But Sheikh Swaibu Ndugga has denied involvement in fraudulent sale of Muslim properties. He instead claims that by the time he took over, most of the plots had been illegally sold by Uganda Muslim Supreme Council.
Sheikh Yasin Kakomo, the Amir of Masaka says although Uganda Muslim Supreme Council has land titles of Kyazanga Mosque and Masaka central Mosque, they will never surrender the land. He says they fear it would be sold off.
Sheikh Abdullah Mutazindwa and Sheikh Mustapher Kasule, previously opposed to Mubajje\'s administration surprisingly joined Mubajje and pledged to work with him for unity.
