Muslim leaders advised to reconcile internally instead of looking to government.

The Leader of the Opposition in Parliament Mathias Mpuuga Nsamba has advised the Muslim leaders to explore internal mechanisms of reconciliation instead of looking to the government as an arbiter to their disputes.
Mpuuga’s comments follow renewed demands by a section of Muslim leaders in Masaka to the government to release the findings of the Professor Tarsis Kabwegyere problem into the causes of the perennial Muslim leadership wrangles in the country.
During Eid prayers at Masaka main mosque, Sheikh Sulait Ssentongo, the Deputy Supreme District Khadi in charge of greater Masaka implored parliament to halt the government’s direct funding of the activities undertaken by the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council-UMSC.
But Mpuuga observes that demanding the release of the probe report is asking too much from the government, arguing that it is better for the warring factions to take the path of reconciliation amongst themselves as a way of defusing the protracted disputes
