The President appointed the Committee with the task of looking into the Muslim community wrangles. It comprised of a team of 3 members from the Government, 3 from the Kibuli and 3 from the Old Kampala Muslim groups.

The President welcomed the report and said that he would meet the Committee soon to work out a program based on the proposed road map that will conclude with a united leadership of the Muslim Community following a new constitution.

The constitution will be composed by all the parties of the Muslim community.

President Museveni has in the past had joint meeting with the Muslim leaders from the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council led by Mufti Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubajje and their counterparts from Kibuli Mosque, led by Supreme Mufti Zubairi Kayongo.

He advised them that it was time for the Muslim leaders to reconcile and work together to find a lasting solution to their differences for the sake of the Islamic faith, the Muslim Community and for peace and development of Uganda.

The Committee Chairman, Prof. 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.

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

The Committee recommended that there should be a Judiciary Tribunal to address all the Muslim property wrangles with a view to putting an end to the wrangles. It further recommended a road map that could conclude with new leadership.

Prof. Tarsis Kabwegyere was confident that after presenting the report to the President it would lead to a new era in the Uganda Muslim Affairs adding that it would also lead to a fundamental change.

The other members on the Committee are: Mr. Isaac Musumba, who represented the Government. The Kibuli team comprised Hajji Mohammed Kisambira, Sheikh Kirya and Faizal Mukasa.

Old Kampala team had Dr. Kasenene, Sheikh Ssesimba and Hajji Musana.
