Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata, the former spokesperson of the Kibuli-based Muslim faction who passed on in December last year at International Hospital Kampala where he had been admitted due to pneumonia.
The Minister of State for Youth and Children Affairs, Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi has ordered relatives and friends of late Sheikh Nuhu Muzaata vacate his home.
She said this will pave way for Muzaata’s children to feel free in their home.
This comes after fresh wrangles escalated between the two widows, Kuluthum Nabunya, Muzaata’s second wife, the first wife, Amina Bugirita, and relatives over ownership of the late Muzaata’s house in Keti Falaawo, Kawempe Division in Kampala.
Speaking to relatives while taking back the late’s son Anwali Sssenga, 12, and his mother to Muzaata’s home amidst protests from the relatives, Nakiwala said as minister she is concerned about the children, not relatives.
‘We want only the children of the deceased allowed to stay in this home but for relatives, friends and clan leaders, wait for the court orders and Sharia (Islamic law) to solve this matter,” Nakiwala said.
After his burial, a battle broke out between his two widows over who owns the Kawempe home. This forced the Police to close the home, and for two months, the home has been manned by Police.
