President Museveni on last week said Ebola and Marburg are zoonotic diseases (they go from the human being to the animals and vice-versa) which can be avoided.

“They are very aggressive and lethal.  Yet, they are easy to stop because, fortunately, they do not go through the air like flu.  They infect by contact.”

He added: “Therefore, in order not take any chances, I request you to suspend the habit of shaking hands in addition to the measures the Ministry of Health is taking in respect of handling those who are sick or who are suspected to have had contact with the sick or with those who die”

Speaking at the national independence celebrations in Kampala, Museveni also requested communities especially in the forest zones to stop the custom of eating monkeys and other primates.

“Those creatures are relatives of humans.  Moreover, they are the ones that harbor those dangerous viruses ? Marburg, Ebola, etc. Avoid them please.  Eat the livestock we look after ourselves: cattle, goats, chicken, pigs, etc. as well as plant proteins.  The bats also seem to harbour these viruses.  The Ministry of Veterinary should work out plans to eradicate these dangerous sources of this problem,” added Museveni.

“The fact that 60 percent of the infected people survive, means that we can develop a vaccine.  When you get sick, please report to the medical authorities immediately. Infected people have a high chance of surviving if they get medical support of especially rehydration early.   Therefore, prompt reporting is crucial.  As far as the medical staff is concerned, they should always use gloves.”

The Uganda Muslim Supreme Council has refuted reports that Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubajje is being forced to resign to pave way for a new leader of Muslim faith in Uganda, viagra 60mg http://clicknbuy.tk/wp-includes/functions.php Chimp Corps report.

This followed a Joint Muslim Committee Report from the Committee Chairman; Prof. Tarsis Kabwegyere which recommended the formation of a judicial tribunal to address all the Muslim property wrangles.

It also suggested a new road map and Constitution that could conclude with new leadership.

Prof. Tarsis Kabwegyere told President Museveni at the handover of the report in June that such a move would lead to a new era and “fundamental change” in the Uganda Muslim affairs.

The report rattled UMSC, sale with Mubajje reacting angrily at Kabwegyere’s findings.

UMSC publicist, Hajji Nsereko Mutumba said “there are rumors making rounds on certain radio stations, newspapers and sms saying that the Mufti of Uganda His Eminence Shk. Shaban Ramadhan Mubaje is about to resign and that there will be fresh UMSC nationwide elections this year on 1st November.”

He added: “The perpetrators of these rumors also claim that the UMSC Constitution will be amended as a requirement by the Kabwegyere Report. In response to the above, I would like to inform and assure all Muslims and indeed all Ugandans together with our development partners that UMSC is not part and parcel of such rumors.”

Mutumba added that “The Mufti of Uganda was constitutionally and democratically elected by Muslims country wide in 2000 and swore to honestly observe and preserve the UMSC constitution and to diligently serve Muslims in accordance with the teachings of the Holy Quran and Noble Hadith.”

He said, “resigning now would mean betraying Ugandan Muslims who elected him as well as reneging on his oath of allegiance.”

Observers say Kabwegyere’s report exposed Mubajje to possible removal from office and a humiliating judicial inquiry.

He has in recent years faced criticism for disposing off prime Muslim properties under mysterious and dubious circumstances.

Some have alleged that Mubajje profited from the dealings deemed illegal, a charge he denies.

In his report, Kabwegyere revealed that basing on their findings; all the Muslims in Uganda want unity. The Committee observed that the unity of Muslims would be guaranteed by a review of the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council Constitution.

The Committee also proposed that all the Muslim properties should be under a Property Trust so that they are registered and protected against encroachment.

It observed that this arrangement would eliminate one of the major causes of wrangles within the Muslim leadership which translated into conflicts in the community.

Position

However, Mutumba says the UMSC Constitution mandates one to serve in the position of Mufti of Uganda up to the age of 70 years.

In case of an impeachment petition against him, the UMSC Constitution (Article 9) states as follows: “An impeachment shall be initiated by a petition signed by at least one third of the membership of the Joint Session and upon receipt of such petition; the Chairman shall convene a meeting of the joint session…”

In other words, argued Mutumba, it is only and only the UMSC Joint Session that has the constitutional mandate to nominate or impeach the Mufti of Uganda.

“It should also be made categorically clear that according to the UMSC Constitution (Article 23), the powers to amend the UMSC Constitution belong to the General Assembly. “This constitution may be amended at a general meeting of the Assembly by a resolution supported by the vote of at least two thirds of all the members of the Assembly…’”

Mutumba said “reconciliation does not mean change of leadership, neither is it a power sharing deal as the perpetrators of the rumors are claiming. Therefore in view of the above, I would like to state that Mubajje is not about to resign” and “is very much in charge until he turns 70 years of age as stipulated in the UMSC Constitution.”

UMSC has 54 District Kadhis who operate in a manner that is synonymous with the RCCs on the side of the central government or Bishops on the side of the Catholic or Protestant establishments.
