“I, therefore, encourage all Muslims across the country to continue exhibiting those virtues even after the Ramadan, at work and home,” he said while receiving items donated by Liquid telecom to help during Iftar, at the Kibuli Mosque.
He said the holy month of Ramadan is not only for fasting but also for sharing and appealed to Muslims to be more charitable.
