Muslim War On Museveni Escalates
"Don't fight us, leave us alone!"
That was a sterm threat issued by Sheikh Edrisa Mutwabi as he led Muslims in Friday prayers at Kibuli mosque, Kampala.
The prayers which started at noon were attended by hundreds of Muslims amidst tight security. All roads leading to the mosque were sealed off by anti-riot police.
Sheikh Edrisa said he had summoned Muslims to fight for their property and warned government to stay out of their wrangles.
He said government led by President Yoweri Museveni should not mix Muslim affairs with politics.

"If you play with our religion, you will be disobedient to Islam so we shall not listen," warned another Sheikh Siliman Kasule Ndirangwa.
Ndirangwa called on Muslims and their Imams to be trust worthy, adding they are ready to participate in the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council elections if the exercise is fair and orderly.
