Popular Nollywood actress, Ufuoma McDermott has reacted to the news of Rwanda’s Ministry of Local Government (MINALOC) recent decision to ban the nightly Muslim call to prayer known as Adhan.

The ban was taken into consideration due to the noise nuisance raised by the public.

The practice of attaching loudspeakers to mosque minarets began in Asia in the 1930s and has spread around the world. Five calls are launched per day, to summon the faithful for their five daily prayers.

Rwandan authorities say residents have complained about the first call to prayer – which takes place between 4:30 a.m. and 4:49 a.m. and lasts about two or three minutes.

Reacting to this, Ufuoma McDermott via a blog comments section says it is a welcome development and good for all as the government had also banned a similar call to prayer by Christians.

She wrote: “he has already done this (banning this on Christians)…and it is a welcome development for all.”
