Religious-council to discipline partisan clerics
Presidents of the Inter-Religious Council of Uganda (IRCU) have warned all religious leaders openly taking part in partisan politics to stop it immediately or be forced to resign their religious positions.
Uganda Muslim Supreme Council Mufti, Sheikh Shaban Ramadan Mubajje while addressing journalists in Namirembe yesterday advised that the religious leaders that have chosen to take this direction should resign their positions first or they will have to face disciplinary measures from their individual religious administrations.
Meanwhile, the IRCU is organizing the national interdenominational prayers for peaceful and violence free elections and also a thanksgiving for the 53 years of Uganda’s independence. The prayers will be held on October 1, 2015 at Kololo Independence Grounds at 9:00am.
