Circumcision campaign on
KAMPALA-The Uganda Muslim Suuni Association has launched a circumcision campaign. Chairman Yusuf Shubdin said the free service would also be offered to non-Muslims. Presenting the association’s annual report at the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council on Monday, Shubdin said the campaign was in response to the Government’s call on people to get circumcised. He said the exercise would be carried out every Thursday at Aldina Mosque in Old Kampala. Shubdin also said the mosque would take care of the circumcised people until they heal.

Firm to check on city hygiene
KAMPALA-A private firm will monitor and enforce health and safety standards in the city.
The district council recently approved Innovative Masters Holding Group’s proposal which will be carried out with Kampala City Council for three years. The firm will inspect schools, filling stations, hospitals, clinics and factories to ensure that they are safe and clean.
