Speaker Anita Among calls for Unity and development among Muslim leaders

During a meeting with leaders of the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council from Mbarara District, Speaker of Parliament Anita Among this morning delivered a powerful message urging religious leaders to champion unity within their communities.

She emphasised the importance of standing together as brothers and sisters in faith and condemned divisive forces that threaten to weaken the fabric of the society. “We’ve seen divisions orchestrated by selfish individuals that is costing our people dearly,” she said, urging religious leaders to actively promote the message of unity.

In addition to fostering unity, Among encouraged religious leaders to play a proactive role in shaping the nation’s future by advocating for leaders who prioritize development. She criticized those who habitually oppose government initiatives without considering their potential benefits.

“We’ve witnessed a trend where some leaders [just] oppose government efforts without offering constructive alternatives, which ultimately hinders progress,” Among added, urging religious leaders to support positive change.
