Muslims Move to Push Out Ntungamo District Kadhi

Sheikh Swalleh Kashangirwe, the Ntungamo district Kadhi has come under fire from a section of Muslims that want him out of office.

Kashangirwe is being accused among others of incompetence and mismanagement of Muslim funds.

The angry Muslims on Thursday held a demonstration at the Kadhi offices and held up placards calling for his resignation.

The demonstration however was interrupted by Police and the Ntungamo RDC George Bakunda.

The Muslim community led by the Ntungamo Muslim district council chairman Hajji Jafari Kawuki accuse Sheikh Kashangirwe of mismanaging their money since he elected district Kadhi last year.

They also accuse him of suspending the Ntungamo Municipality Imam Sheikh Abdudallah Yunusi Rwamahe without paying his  4.5million shillings  debt and recently sacking of Ntungamo Muslim district council chairman Hajji Jafari Kawuki without following right procedures.

In the letter dated May 14th 2019, Hajji Kawuki ceased to be the Ntungamo Muslim district council chairman and Said Bukenya was elected to be the care taker for three months.

This prompted Hajji Kawuki and the Muslim community to storm the office of RDC Ntungamo where RDC George Bakunda petitioned the Mufti of Uganda Sheikh Shaban Mubajje who promised visit Ntungamo district on Thursday 16th May 2019 but failed to show up.


Muslims resolved to unseat Sheikh Kashangirwe and Bukenya from the office until their issues are settled.

RDC Bakunda tried to calm the situation but failed and this helped Kashangirwe to hide in the offices until the police whisked him from angrily Muslims.
