The embattled Arua Muslim District Khadi Sheikh Ahmed Amin Maga has been dismissed by the district Muslim Supreme Council in a meeting at Irshad mosque in Arua Municipality. Amin Maga has been facing opposition from a section of the councilors over alleged maladministration.

Leaders of UMSC in Arua district have finally replaced the district Khadi following his impeachment drive from January this year.

Sheik Ahmed Amin Maga, who has been the Khadi for the last 17 years, was impeached on grounds of mismanagement, abuse of office and misappropriating 46 million shillings belonging to UMSC among others

While presenting the council petition, Sheik Drani Abdul Majid said their decision is backed by article 9 of the UMSC constitution

Although the Khadi requested for more time to respond to the petition, his pleas fell on deaf ears as the councilors insisted it was in contravention of constitution

Comments from Sheik Ahmed Amin Maga, on the new developments are yet to be established

UMSC in Arua will now be led by the new Khadi, Sheik Vuni Juma Abdulhai.
