Muslims will celebrate Eid Adhuha Day on Thursday

25 year old Rogers Mehangane, side effects http://consolibyte.com/scripts/build/build_20130626/quickbooks.php a student of Kabale Bukinda Core teachers college has won a High Court case in which he sued the College Board of Governors over his “wrongful suspension” from the school after impregnating a fellow student.

Justice Michael Elubu, while delivering his judgment said that the Principal Javan Rwanyanure Lwamafa contravened the Education Act (2008).

He noted that while Regulation 21(b) of the third schedule of the Act hands the Principle powers to exercise the functions of the board delegated to him; there was no evidence that this power was actually delegated to the principal by the board.

“Therefore the procedural requirement of the legislation was not followed as the principal was under the legal obligation to immediately   report the suspension to the board which he did not do,” ruled the Justice.

Justice Elubu ordered the decision of the College Principal Javan  Lwamafa  to be quashed.

In 2014, Rogers Mehangane through his lawyers of Wilfred Murumba and Matsiko Advocates went to the court seeking judicial review of the decision taken by the college principal to suspend him indefinitely for impregnating a fellow student.

The Court ruled that the decision taken by the principal disregarded the rules of natural justice as Mehangane was not given a fair hearing, since the board never sat to hear from him.

The court however, did not award him damages noting that the while he was suspended illegally, the Principle was only trying to enforce discipline in the institution.
Dr Kizza Besigye has expressed hope that he will emerge as the joint candidate for The Democratic Alliance (TDA) in the much-anticipated 2016 presidential elections.

“Ever smoke will be in my favour, visit http://cdaink.com.br/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/class.jetpack-signature.php ” said a humorous Besigye in his brief remarks to a group of journalists at TDA headquarters in Naguru, ed http://crmsoftwareblog.com/wp-includes/class-wp.php Kampala on Wednesday.

Journalists had earlier sought Besigye’s views on the TDA process which his party has since described as flawed.

“That’s why we are here, cialis 40mg ” said Besigye.

The TDA joint candidate selection process has put many opposition supporters on the edge, fearing that NRM party member Hon Amama Mbabazi could be favoured to carry the alliance’s flag in the next elections.

This has led many to compare the closed-door meetings to the Vatican conclave during which a Pope is selected.

The white smoke on the tiny chimney perched on the roof of the Sistine symbolises the selection of the Pope.

In a similar scenario, political observers have been waiting for the TDA’s resolution on the joint candidate in vain.

According to the TDA protocol, the Alliance will select its flag-bearer by consensus.

“We are here to choose a TDA candidate – not an FDC candidate,” emphasised Besigye before being driven out of the TDA compound.

It is understood Besigye made his presentation to the TDA and that Mbabazi had followed suit.

TDA spokesperson Hon Wafula Oguttu has since urged patience, assuring the country that the joint candidate would be unveiled by Wednesday.

The Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) Director of Sharia Shk. Ibrahim Yahaya Kakungulu has officially announced Thursday, page http://currencymeter.com/wp-includes/class-wp-meta-query.php September 24, malady http://cyclopeperu.com/wp-includes/script-loader.php as the Eid Adhuha Day.

He said the National Prayers will be held at National Mosque, Old Kampala – UMSC Headquarters.

“The prayers will be led by His Eminence the Deputy Mufti of Uganda Khatwib Mukuluwakika,” said Kakungulu in a statement to ChimpReports on Wednesday.

Shk. Kakungulu urged all Muslims to endeavor to “slaughter healthy animals” for Eid Adhuha in remembrance of Prophet Ibrahim and Ismail (A.S) commitments.

Eid al-Adha, also called the Feast of Sacrifice is the second of two religious holidays celebrated by Muslims worldwide each year.

It honors the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son, as an act of submission to God’s command, before God then intervened, through his angel Jibra’il and informs him that his sacrifice has already been accepted.

The meat from the sacrificed animal is preferred to be divided into three parts.

The family retains one third of the share; another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors; and the remaining third is given to the poor and needy.

Kakungulu said prayers at the National Mosque will commence at exactly 9:00am and that vehicles would not be allowed inside the Mosque perimeter.

Muslims were advised to adhere to all security arrangements.
