The Mufti of Uganda, Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubaje, has suspended the Bunyoro -Tooro regional Kadhi, Sheikh Muhammad Irumba from office citing a number of issues including causing divisions among Muslims in the region.
“You are hereby suspended from the office of the regional Kadhi Bunyoro- Tooro Muslim region with immediate effect,” reads the May 27, 2021 letter from Mubaje.
Mubaje requested him to handover all the office equipment including the vehicle with immediate effect.
In the letter, Mubaje noted that the Muslim regional administration was established to bridge the gap between the headquarters and lower administrative structure, more especially to unite Muslims.
“You have failed to unite the Muslims of Bunyoro- Tooro Muslim region, which has disrupted the smooth running of council work,” reads the letter.
Zziwa Ashiraf, Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) spokesperson told The Nile Post that the Khadi has caused a lot of confusion among Muslims instead of initiating developmental programmes.
“In fact Muslims in the entire region got fed up with him,”he said.
