Pope Speaks to Uganda Muslims After Kenya Attack

From All Africa-

The pope's message was delivered last week to the Mufti of Uganda, Sheikh Shaban Mubajje, by the Vatican's Apostolic Nuncio to Uganda, Michael A. Blume at Old Kampala. Delivering the message, Blume said the pope wants to promote peace and interfaith dialogue.

"We will continue reaching out to our Muslim brothers and sisters because we know that with peace, we will achieve development," said the Apostolic Nuncio.

He commended the mufti for his outstanding role in promoting peace and development. On his part, Mubajje thanked the pope for sending the peace message.

"We thank the pope for the fact that he is there for world peace," said the Mufti, adding that Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) believes in peace, promotes peace and keeps peace at all times.

He noted that this is why UMSC is a member of peace promoting organisations such as the Inter Religious Council of Uganda and Religions for Peace International, among others.
