“Annually we congregate as the party together with the Muslim brothers and sisters to honour every month of Ramadan and also to share with our Muslim brothers and sisters. This time round we decided to touch base in Arua to celebrate with our Muslim brothers,” said Mulindawa who represented the party President, Patrick Amuriat and Secretary General, Nandala Mafabi.

He said as a party they appreciate that West Nile and in particular the capital of West Nile, Arua city has a sizable number of Muslim brothers across the divide.

Khemis Muzaid, the Arua Central Division Mayor commended the FDC leadership for thinking about the people of Arua this time round.

He said the party used to organize Iftar dinner for Muslims elsewhere, but by bringing this year’s opportunity to his division, the people are so grateful to the party leadership.
