Supreme Mufti Sheikh Sulaiman Ndirangwa has cited a row between him and his superiors as the reason for his resignation.
He said he was smaller than the good of the Muslim Community to cling on power amid battling “therefore I have to go”.
He has served for five years having succeeded the demised Supreme Mufti Sheikh Zubair Kayongo who died in 2016.
“I want to inform you today that I have resigned the leadership as Supreme Mufti for Uganda. I have done this for the good of the Muslim community because I am smaller than the Muslim fraternity,” Ndirangwa said.
He thanked Allah for choosing him to serve Moslems and appreciated those he worked with including district khadis and Imams during his tenure.
“I appreciate the good work, the good relationship we have had. I pray Allah to reward you,” Ndirangwa said in a televised resignation telecast from Mengo on Thursday night.
He said “I cannot engage in battles with my superiors and I will give details but I pray that our community flourishes when I am not the problem”.
Ndirangwa said that he prayed that those who will take the mantle fulfils what he failed to do.
