Nabbanja appeals to the Muslim community to support the government’s poverty-reduction initiatives.

Robinah Nabbanja, the Prime Minister, has urged religious leaders to constantly support government programs like as the Parish Development Model as a means of reducing poverty in households.

She stated that the government is dedicated to assisting religious institutions in such endeavors.

She made the statements during Juma prayers at Kibuli Mosque, where she also handed over a vehicle provided by President Museveni to the Supreme Mufti sheik Muhammad Galabuzi.

“We appreciate the Muslim faith’s contributions to the country’s education, health, economy, and other sectors. President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, has been a strong supporter of religious organizations, including muslims, catholics, and other religions. So Kibuli’s finest mufti qualifies,” she explained.

The prime minister urged Uganda’s Muslim community to adopt the parish development model and other government programs as a means of alleviating poverty.

Prince Kassim Nakibinge, the nominal head of the Muslim community in Uganda, has urged the government to release Ugandans detained in various jails, particularly if there is insufficient evidence to convict them.

“We would like to request that the Prime Minister use her power and influence to secure the release of all Ugandans who are detained.” If they have proof against them, it should be presented in court,” he said.

Nakibinge urged Prime Minister Museveni to take action against state actors who torture Ugandans.
