The titular head of Muslims in Uganda, Prince Kassim Nakibinge, has expressed concern over the increasing intrigue and conspiracy among leaders which he said has led to the suffering of the common people in the country.
Nakibinge made the remarks while speaking at the celebrations to mark 127 years since the late Prince Nuhu Mbogo returned from exile in Zanzibar.
Nakibinge urged leaders from all levels across the country to emulate Prince Nuhu Mbogo and do things which can improve the welfare of the people.
Nakibinge said that there are some leaders who think that they will become rich by conspiring against their religion, something he said must stop because God is the sole provider of everything in this world and everyone will get his or her share.
He urged the leaders to focus on the issues that are constructive to the people of Uganda, adding that the most important is discipline, politeness and being humble.
Mbogo, a brother to Kabaka Muteesa I, was in 1893 exiled to Zanzibar by British imperialists as they sought to stump out Islam in Buganda.
