Warm meeting between Catholic, Muslim leaders in Uganda

Catholic World News - January 21, 2010

Accompanied by 150 priests, Archbishop Cyprian Kizito Lwanga of Kampala paid his first visit to Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubajje, the leader of Uganda’s Muslims.

“I am overwhelmed by your warm welcome,” said Archbishop Lwanga. “We are brothers and sisters as seen from creation. This brotherhood should be maintained, and we as religious leaders should carry it on to God’s subjects so that we leave in peace and harmony”

“Concentrate on what builds us than what disunites us, because our goal is to achieve development which we cannot attain without unity,” said Sheikh Mubajje. “You handle your misunderstandings calmly, unlike us Muslims, and I admire you for that. Conflicts are everywhere, among individuals, families, and groups; they seem normal although dangerous. However if handled well, they can enhance development.”

44% of Uganda’s 28.3 million people are Catholic; 42% are Protestant, and 12% are Muslim.
