Muslims hold out an olive branch to Christians as they mark Id Ul Fitr

08 July 2016, 11:14 Jane Zack

Busia - Muslims in Busia County marked the end to the holy month of Ramadhan by inviting their Christian brothers and County leaders for an interdenominational service at the Busia County Stadium on Saturday.

Speaking at Busia Polytechnic where they had converged to mark Id Ul-Fitr, the chairman of Imams Sheikh Abdul Mahmud said the day will be used to unite  with Christian brothers in realizing peace in the County.

"We are happy Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong has given us a go-ahead to use the venue for the special service which will also be used to recognize the disadvantaged in the society.

We also want to take this opportunity to thank the Governor for setting aside KES 5 million in the budget for the purchase of our cemetery. This is a kind gesture befitting a County leader," he said.

He called on both Muslims and Christians to unite and bring love between Muslims and non Muslims, adding that the two should not look at each other as enemies.

Busia Member of the County Assembly, Mohammed Nur said he will remain a loyal member of ODM if MPs Paul Otuoma and Ababu Namwamba will quit the orange party.

Nur said he will back Ojaamong for Governor if he secures the ODM ticket.

"I will do the same for other aspirants from MCA to President.

"I am only disappointed with Jakoyo Midiwo who is daring party officials to quit the party if they so wish. We need as many members as possible in the Orange party to boost our chances of clinching the presidency in 2017," he said.

Nur said the only best thing  for the party is to ensure there is fair nomination of candidates for various seats to restore trust among party members.
