I think Masjid Al-Qudus is acting as a liaison of not only individuals but also, of the Muslim Organisations in Uganda. This is realised in the Friday Khutubah that have attracted many Muslim Scholars from Muslim Centers in and around Kampala, and my thinking is that the goal is to attract as many as Masjid Al-Qudus will find contactable and reachable.
