Mufti Mubajje Suspends ‘Corrupt’ Mbarara District Kadhi

The Mufti of Uganda Sheikh Ramadan Mubajje has suspended Mbarara District Khad Sheikh Ramadan Khamisi and two others Muslim leaders over the fraudulent sale of Muslim land at 2 Miles in Mbarara town on Mbarara –Masaka road.

The other two are the Secretary General Uganda Muslim Supreme Council, store Mbarara Mr. Yahaya Semugenzi and his treasurer Mr. Rashid Famau.

The three are alleged to have been involved in the sale of 4 plots of Uganda Muslim Supreme Council land that accommodates a Muslim community cemetery.

Sheikh Mubajje who arrived in Mbarara yesterday first met the Muslim community at Abubakar mosque before meeting the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council, Mbarara executive at Lake View hotel late in the evening.

The decision by the Mufti and his team was communicated on Saturday by the Chairman Uganda Muslim Supreme Council, Mbarara Sheikh Swalleh Adam in a press briefing at Mbarara Main Mosque in Mbarara town.

“We sat with the Mufti and his team at Lake View hotel last evening, we gave in our statements and later he (mufti) and his team excused themselves for another small meeting and after they joined us again informing us of their decision to suspend the three,” said Mr. Swalleh.

He said the Kadhi and his team were instructed to hand over to him immediately and announced Sheikh Silagi Kwikiriza to be a district Khad care taker.

However the three refused to comment on the suspension saying the matter is now being handled by their superiors.


The land in contention was allegedly sold off to one Sadam, who owns Tutsi petrol station, between Shs 300-500million.

Meanwhile Mr. Yahaya Semugenzi also suspended was on Saturday morning arrested by fellow Muslims as he took away some files out of his office.

Police intervened to save him from being lynched and the files were recovered from his vehicle parked meters from his office. He was later whisked away to Mbarara Central Police station where he was still being held by press time.
