MURDERS            
 
KAMPALA – The titular head of Muslims, Prince Kassim Nakibinge Kakugulu has condemned the rampant killings in the country, stressing that something needs to be done to stop the trend.
 
The murders he termed as ‘senseless’, said were causing insecurity, panic and instilling fear among Ugandans.
 
“I have spoken about this again and again; but some people didn’t heed, saying they were Muslim affairs. It continued to women murders and others. I do not know how many people should die for our friends in security to walk the talk?” he added.
 
He was addressing hundreds of Muslims who had gathered at his home in Kibuli during Eid- al-Fitir celebrations. He also served them a meal to break the fast.
 
Nakibinge’s concern follows the recent murder of Arua Municipality MP, Ibrahim Abiriga and his brother Saidi Buga who were assassinated in cold blood by unknown people, meters away from his residence in Kawanda, Wakiso district.
 
Since 2012, several high profile people have been murdered in a similar manner including; over 12 Muslim clerics, Joan Kagezi (state prosecutor), Maj. Sulaiman Kiggundu and former police spokesperson AIGP Felix Kaweesi but killers have never been apprehended.  
 
Nakibinge stressed that security needs to step up its operations to bring those behind the killings to book, instead of arresting innocent people.
 
“We want security to be just in their investigations. On many occasions they have been arresting many people over several killings and later released after realizing they are innocent,” he added.
 
He said with the trend of “these senseless” killings going on in the country, many Ugandans live in fear and feel insecure.
 
“There is peace in Uganda; but when you walk around town you find people driving their cars in tinted cars and do not want their faces to be seen. When you go to Kololo one of the most safest places, people live in high raised walls. Why?,” he noted.
 
Nakibinge asked all Ugandans to work in unity to seek for God’s intervention through prayer to save the situation.
 
“As we wait for our friends in security to walk the talk, let us all raise our hands and ask for God’s intervention to help us end these killings and other crimes. I also ask those behind the killings to have a human heart and stop what they are doing. Those who do not stop should be exposed,” he added.
 
Nakibinge sent his condolence message to the family of the late Abiriga, saying it was so unfortunate that he died in such manner.
 
At the same event, he called on the Ministry of the Education to always engage schools’ founding boards and owners of the schools before effecting any transfer of head teachers and teachers.
 
Nakibinge asked all Muslims to keep doing good like they have been doing in the month of Ramadhan.
 
“The same Allah we have been worshipping during Ramadhan is the same God we worship every day. Keep doing good in all your walks of life even after ending the holy month of Ramadhan,” he added.  
 
The event was attended by various dignitaries including the Hajjat Madina Amin (late president Idi Amin’s wife), Sheikh Siliman Ndirwangwa (Supreme Mufti), Twaha Kawase (Buganda Kingdom second deputy premier) and Elias Lukwago (Lord Mayor) among others.
