The Mufti of Uganda, His Eminence Sheikh Shaban Ramathan Mubajje has criticized the police for stopping well-wishers from distributing food to starving households.
This was carried in his address during Eid Aduha prayers at Gaddafi National Mosque in Kampala.
Moslems today across the world celebrate Eid Aduha also referred to as the Festival of Sacrifice which is one of the most important festivals on the Muslim calendar.
Mubajje said that instead of blocking them, they should be guided to ensure that the food is distributed in accordance with the Covid-19 SOPs.
On Monday, the Police Spokesperson Fred Enaga banned the distribution of food to vulnerable people during the lockdown on grounds of contravening standard operating procedures (SoPs) and quality of handouts.
