“I and the team of Keddi Foundation have flagged off this of 100 pilgrims as a result of serving humanity. Many times, we have seen religious people confronting each other for no reason, there far I’m encouraging our pilgrims who are leaving to go and pray for unity and peace both for themselves and the country” Keddi emphasized.

He added, “I thank also the government for facilitating passport applications through their Muslim travel agencies”

During the flag off, Muslim leader, Sheikh Miradu Kaluuma applauded the keddi foundation for the charitable projects of unity being carried out in the country.

Sheikh Kaluuma said the average trip to the holy land on each pilgrim is estimated at over 20 million which is a good commitment by the foundation.

“We are happy as Muslims for this opportunity to the believers, though it’s not the first time for the foundation to offer such kind of support trip and we are proud of Keddi and his team” Kaluuma stated.

In his remarks, Keddi committed to supporting over 500 Muslim believers in a trip to Mecca.

Earlier this week, the Uganda Civil Aviation Authority (UCAA) cautioned the travellers using the international airport to plan well due to the anticipated increase in a number of pilgrims ahead of Mecca.

This year, over 1,600 Muslim pilgrims are expected to travel to Mecca.
