Masaka Municipality MP Mathias Mpuga ended his speech prematurely
Muslims in Masaka expressed discontent during the Eid prayers at the Masaka Main Mosque and booed politicians over their endless speeches.
The Masaka Municipality MP Mathias Mpuga ended his speech prematurely when the Muslims stood up in protest at about 11am.
The women started the protest when they raised concerns over endless speeches saying they had meals to prepare for their families.
“We are fed up of endless speeches; you have turned our prayers political. We have to go back home to prepare meals for our families,” they shouted.
The Mosque Imam Jamil Mbuga grabbed the microphone from Mpuga and made effort to calm down them down in vain.
This was after the Masaka RDC, Lt Joe Walusimbi who was the chief guest decided to give an opportunity to the area MP, Mpuga to speak to the audience.
Earlier, the former Masaka district council chairman, Joseph Kalungi and the former district woman MP Frida Mubanda were given the platform to speak to the Muslims.
Other who spoke to the audience included the Masaka district council chairman, Jude Mbabali.
The district Kadhi, Sheikh Swaibu Nduga also used the platform to demand the pledges made by President Yoweri Museveni during the campaign.
He said the President promised to rehabilitate the main mosque in Masaka and other business infrastructure developments.
He asked the President to fulfil his promise of a new bus for late Alal Kamur of GASO transport Company which was burnt during the Kayunga riots in Kampala.
Brigadier Silver Kayemba promised to remind Museveni about the pledges he promised the Muslim community.
