The Kabaka of Buganda, His Majesty Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II has encouraged Muslims as they prepare to celebrate Eid Adhuha to pray for change among individuals and political players who are against Buganda and what belongs to the Kingdom.
In his Eid message issued on July 19, 2021, the Kabaka asked Muslims to pray for this country which is facing a number of challenges.
“We ask you to continue praying to Allah to change the voices aimed at changing what belongs to us like land as well as those aimed at creating hatred for Buganda in various ways,” he said.
He sought prayers for a speedy and fair trial of people accused of committing criminal offenses so that those found guilty can be punished and the innocent set free.
“Courts of law must be independent and decide cases basing on evidence provided as well as the law.”
The Kabaka also called on the Muslim faithful to intercede for the legislators in the current Parliament to pass laws that benefit all Ugandans.
“Pray for the new Members of Parliament to legislate on issues that help people from all regions of this country, not individuals, region, political affiliations or various religious denominations. This is the foundation for the development of our country,” the Kabaka said in his message.
Due to the prevailing covid-19 pandemic, all communal gatherings like prayers were banned for 42 days and this year’s Eid Adhuha prayers will be held at people’s homes.
