Museveni hosts Muslim clerics enjoy Iftar together  

Miseveni with Mufti

President Museveni yesterday Broke the fast (Iftar) with the Muslim community at State House Entebbe.

Museveni who thanked the guests for honouring his invitation congratulated the Muslim community for coming this far in the month of Ramadan and prayed that you conclude the fasting period in good health.

“I thank the Muslim community for greatly contributing to Uganda’s economy especially in the field of trade. However, I encourage you to venture into farming too. For those in urban areas, consider getting into industries. Some of you like Hajji Bulayimu Kibirige aka BMK of Hotel Africana, are already in the hospitality industry.” He said.

Museveni noted that It is also good to note that there are fewer divisions among Muslims today.

“We must continue to work for a united Muslim community. In the new financial year, we shall begin work on the national mosque.” He added.
