Iftar Dinner @State House - Entebbe

By Agency

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni on Wednesday hosted the Muslim community for an Iftar dinner at State House-Entebbe.

During the dinner, President Museveni congratulated the Muslim faithful for successfully moving this far in the Ramathan season.

“When I hear people quoting the Quran and explaining it like how my niece was doing, I find a lot of similarities with the Bible. I wonder where the difference between the two comes from because I find the substance to be quite close,” he said.

The President was also happy to note that the religious groups are now encouraging their followers to work in order to enhance their livelihoods.

The President also tasked leaders to help the people they lead to embrace the four sectors of the economy to fight poverty.

“These include commercial agriculture with proper enterprise selection, manufacturing and artisanship, services and ICT,” he said.

President Museveni also cautioned the believers against the physical division of land/property when it comes to inheritance. He said the act is very dangerous.

On behalf of the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) and the entire Muslim community, the Mufti of Uganda, Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubajje thanked President Museveni for hosting them annually for the Iftar dinner.

He also congratulated the President for the achievements he has registered throughout the years he has been at the helm of the country.

He also commended President Museveni for being non-sectarian, saying that such quality of a leader has enabled the country to develop without leaving no one behind.

The Mufti also requested President Museveni to economically empower the 10 Muslim regions in the country into model centres of skilling and wealth creation.
