A bitter disagreement ensured at Gadhafi National Mosque at Old Kampala between supporters of Bobi Wine pressure group known as People Power Movement and another group that was opposed to the presence of group at the mosque.

The chaos erupted after special prayers (Dua) that were organised by Mufti of Uganda Sheikh Ramadhan Mubajje to pray for peace and stability in Uganda and all Muslims who were killed by assassins since 2012.

The disagreement emerged after the people power group were accused of politicizing the prayer session.

The Uganda Muslim Supreme Council spokesperson, Haji Nsereko Mutumba said he didn’t see the people power movement group because he was inside the mosque praying.

“Were they (supporters of People Power, Our Power Movement) at the mosque?, “I didn’t see them. We were busy praying inside the mosque.” He said.

The people power movement is pressure group which was founded by Kyadondo East member of parliament Robert Kyagulanyi Ssemtamu popularly known as Bobi Wine.

Mubajje who led the prayers said he visited Abdullah Kittatta and several Muslims who are in jail for various crimes.

“I found mostly young people between the age of 15 and 25. They asked me to tell those in authority to do something about poverty and unemployment in the country,” the Mufti said.

He warned the government to stop harassing and linking Muslims to all crimes in Uganda.
