Lenasia, South Africa – The United Ulama Council of South Africa (UUCSA) recently held its first Board meeting for the year on the 19th and 20th of February 2024 in Lenasia.

During the two-day meeting, UUCSA engaged in constructive dialogues with various groups and stakeholders, including an ANC delegation led by Deputy Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Alvin Botes. Discussions covered a wide range of topics, most notably South Africa's application to the International Court of Justice (ICJ).

Members attended a riveting webinar by Dr Khalid al Awaisi also delivered who delivered a thought-provoking virtual address on the topic of genocide and its ties to global powers.

The second day focused on contemporary challenges, with discussions revolving around the Bela Bill, the Boycotts in Support of Palestine and the importance of integrating Muslims from 'foreign countries' into mainstream South African communities. UUCSA emphasised the necessity for Muslim communities to embrace inclusivity and integration for a harmonious society.

UUCSA remains committed to addressing pressing issues and advocating for the well-being of Muslims across the country. The successful two-day meeting in Lenasia served as a platform for progressive dialogue and collaborative solutions.
