The deputy Mufti of Uganda, Sheikh Ali Waiswa prayed for divine help in the arrest of suspects behind the murders of 25 women.

The gruesome murders have rocked the country with demands growing for Police to bring the culprits to book.

Since March this year the women and girls have been murdered in the areas of Nansana and Wakiso.

“I pray that the murderers be apprehended and face justice,” Waiswa prayed.

Waiswa was leading prayers during a vigil held in Kampala for the 25 women organized by Action for Development.

He called upon state institutions responsible for investigations to expedite the process.

Annabelle Ogwang the Diakonia Uganda country director wondered how the murderers have eluded security agencies.

“It’s a red herring,” Ogwang said.

The Action for Development executive director Regina Bafaki urged guests to pray for the country to remain peaceful.

She also called on security agencies to protect the rights of citizens and ensure no more women are murdered as well as observing good governance.

The vigil was attended by academics, rights advocates, relatives of bereaved families and clerics among others.
