Wakiso Resident District Commissioner Rose Kirabira has asked Ugandans to maintain the prevailing peace and preserve the fight for their freedom to another time. She did not specify when that time should be.

The sitting government and its opponents particularly the youth have been engaged in disagreements which led to arrests, riots, shooting, teargas and in the end dozens of people died as emotions rose during the presidential and parliamentary campaigns in what the latter call fighting for their freedom, or populary, "the struggle"..

Kirabira says that whereas some Ugandans are furiously agitating to gain their freedom, they are at the same time injuring the prevailing peace in the country yet Uganda currently needs peace much more than anything else.

// “cue in: waliwo ekigambo ..

Cue out: .. discuss tubitereeze,” //

While receiving the Mufti of Uganda Sheik Shaban Ramadhan Mubajje during his tour of Wakiso district at her office on Friday, Kirabira said that nobody has the right to spill the blood of another and called upon religious leaders to intervene and save the situation.

// “cue in: ekigambo kyokuyiwa omusaayi ..

Cue out: .. emirembe muggwanga lino,” //

The RDC said that in case of failure to perform in some areas, government should be advised on how to put right whatever may have gone wrong, rather than opposing it.

// “cue in: twategeka mu constitution ..

Cue out: .. tuwabulagana buwabulaganyi,” //

Mufti Mubajje said that although elections are meant for one to express themselves on who they want to vote, it should not be done with shading blood or breaking the law. He explains that the inter-religious council which he chairs is striving to ensure that peace is preserved by having a presidential candidates’ debate for all the candidates to agree on bottom line issues.

Mubajje called upon all stakeholders in the entire election process to respect the rules and guidelines with respect to the covid-19 pandemic.

// “cue in: okulonda kitegeeza muntu ..

Cue out: .. that is wrong,” //

He has urged Ugandans and the Muslims in particular to respect the sitting government and abide by its directives as laid in the holy Quran that disobeying the government is similar to diverting from Islamic teachings.

// “cue in: ffe tubeera tugamba ..

Cue out: .. tugyogera nti yamirembe,” //
