Musician Bobi Wine has Sunday joined voters in Kyadondo East constituency for Eid Al Fitr prayers at Kiti Mosque.
In his Eid Al Firt message, the Kyadondo East constituency Member of Parliament contender wished his constituents a happy festival as they mark the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan.
“On behalf of my wife, children, friends and the entire Kyadondo East electorate, I want to send my best wishes to Muslims around the world, across the country and specifically those in KYADONDO EAST celebrating Eid,” the statement reads in part.
Eid Al-Fitr is an occasion for Muslims to celebrate the end of the Holy month of Ramadhan, and their renewed closeness to God through reflection, spirituality, and charitable giving.
Bobi Wine also commended Muslims for the wonderful work they did during the fasting period.
“We’ve seen an inspiring amount of charity with both Muslims and non-Muslim Islamic, well-wishers across the country giving what they can and giving up their own time for those less fortunate.”
The Ghetto president further thanked Muslims who, in spite of fasting, progressed with “the campaign characterised with dryness, hotness & dusty days”, adding that it’s from that attitude that he “gained more respect and admiration to the contribution that Muslims.”
Conclusively, he praised the Islam fraternity for helping him “realise that Islam is a religion which prides itself on its values such as commitment to peace, love, and prosperity for all.”
The singer turned politician will today be heading to Wattuba parish to address a general rally at Hillside primary School grounds Kiti.
