Earlier, the chairperson of the Muslims in Mukono district, Al-Hajji Haruna Ssemakula asked for forgiveness on behalf of the Muslim fraternity for the alleged Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a rebel organisation which recently slaughtered students at Lubiriha Senior Secondary School and the locals in Kasese district at the Mpondwe border while citing Muslim religion verses of Allah hu akbar. Over 50 people were killed from that attack and among those, were students.

Ssemakula distanced the Muslim faith from such terrorism acts saying those should be regarded as individuals but not the Muslim fraternity.

In response, Gen. Katumba said it’s not only Muslims who take part in these terror acts but also other people from different religious denominations.
