Another bomb blast in Uganda’s capital Kampala has left the security of the country at a questionable state.
There have been a number of bomb explosions in recent weeks. Last month, a 20-year-old waitress was killed after a device, left in a shopping bag, detonated in a bar in the city. Days later several people were injured when a suicide bomber blew himself up in a bus near Kampala.
As of November 16, 2021 three attackers on motorbikes blew themselves up near parliament and the city’s police headquarters in one of the worst bomb attacks in Uganda.
The number of dead is likely to rise, with the blasts leaving body parts strewn in the streets. The attacks came within three minutes of each other. More bombs have been found in other parts of the city, a report from the Police said.
“We believe there are still more members of these domestic terror cells, especially the suicide bomb squad that has been created by the ADF,” said police spokesman Fred Enanga.
“It must be remembered that uganda has been helping in the fight of terrorism with thousands of her troops deployed in somalia’s capital Mogadishu and other cities. We shall crash those pigs,” President Museveni said.
Currently two policemen were among the dead and thirty-three others were injured, but the number of deaths and those injured is expected to rise.
