The National Unity Platform party (NUP) presidential candidate, Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine has mourned the untimely death of the popular Muslim cleric Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata, who died from International Hospital Kampala (IHK) on Friday evening.
Muzaata was hospitalized at IHK last week following an undisclosed health complication, which later prompted a section of people on social media to pronounce him dead, a claim the Kibuli Muslim faction rubbished.
At time of his death, Muzaata was the spokesperson of the Kibuli faction and has been known for unapologetically speaking his mind, approaching and addressing rather sensitive issues without fear.
Mourning the late, Kyagulanyi posted thus: “What a sad day for me! What a sad day for the Muslim fraternity! What a sad day for the country. I am still lost for words. It is difficult to come to terms with the fact that you are no longer in our midst, but that is life. From Allah (SWT) we come, and to Allah (SWT) we return.”
In the same vein, Rtd Maj Gen. Mugisha Gregory Muntu, the Alliance for National Transformation party (ANT) presidential candidate has also expressed his condolences.
“A short while ago, I learnt of the passing of yet another giant of the Islamic faith, Sheikh Muzaata. This is a heavy blow not only to our Muslim brothers and sisters, but the entire nation. Our thoughts, prayers and support go out to the family at this unbearable time,” Muntu said.
