The Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Jamaat of Kampala held a ground breaking ceremony on 20th February 2022 for its new commercial project located at its oldest plot located on Wilson Road, Kampala.
The Plot which housed the first Imambaragah of the Jamaat in 1955 which was later converted into a commercial property is situated in the middle of the Central Business district of Kampala. The income generated from this premises led to the purchase of other assets by the Jamaat.
The Plot famously known as “The Mall” got its name from Alhaj Yusuf Karmalli a well-known personality by our members worldwide. The new project is a 7 Story modern shopping mall whose construction work will commence by end of February 2022 and is expected to be completed within two years.
The Board of Trustees together with the past and current Executive Committees worked tirelessly for the development of the historic plot.
The Program was attended by the Executive Committee of the Jamaat led by the Chairman Br. Sibtain Merchant, the Trust Board and senior members of the Jamaat and began with a Dua Program followed by the brick laying ceremony.
Kampala Jamaat will always remain indebted to its elders and forefathers for their foresight, guidance, and financial contributions towards making the Jamaat self-sufficient one and providing for all the facilities required by the Community.
Let us remember all the past members of Kampala Jamaat who are no longer with us and all the Marhumeen with a Sura Fateha.
