Sheikh Kamoga, who denied having facilitated the killing of Sheikh Bahiga along Entebbe Road in December 2014, was the Amir of Tabliqs before the 1998 invasion by dissenting Tabliqs and taking over of Old Kampala.

Kamoga fled to Nairobi when his other colleagues, including ADF supreme leader, Jamil Mukulu, were rounded up and taken to Luzira.

MP Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda recently said, “through amnesty and other negotiations, Kamoga returned and joined the late Sheikh Abdul-Hakim Ssekimpi to form a rival Tabliq sect called Salafiyya, headquartered at William Street. It is this William Street Salafiyya group that eventually threw out Kakeeto.

He added: “This group has also now disagreed, leading to the removal of Kamoga. But like Kakeeto, Kamoga has also refused to surrender power. He runs Nakasero mosque and has thrown out his rivals from the William street mosque as well. The late Mustafa Bahiga was the chief coordinator of the group that removed Kamoga and set off a rivalry that is blamed for his murder.”
