Two suspected bombs discovered in heart of Kampala



Panic has engulfed Kampala again after two suspected bombs were found planted in a building in the heart of Capital, Kampala.

On Friday morning at 10 am, Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP) discovered two suspected bombs on plot 66 Kampala road.

According to C/ASP Luke Owoyesigire, Police on 26 May 2018 discovered three suspected stick bombs on the same building (plot).

Owoyesigire says the said building has been closed to allow police detectives carry out their investigation before it’s ready for business.

“We therefore closed the building until further notice to give our teams time to search and make sure the building is safe to be occupied again,” KMP Spokesperson said in his press statement.

Kampalans who spoke to TND News reporter expressed fears, saying security must double their efforts most especially in Kampala metropolitan districts.

Musunguzi Deus says: “The current disorder in the country is threatening. We must be vigilant.”

“Why now when we have just started enjoying World Cup?” Douglas Kizza asked.

On Wednesday, Police issued strict security measures as Uganda joins rest of the world in watching World Cup tournaments in Russia.

Moses Kafeero, the KMP Commander asked bar, hotel and discotheque owners to ensure proper checking of their clients before they are allowed in.

He also warned in a Wednesday press conference that those with hooded jackets should be denied access to any bars or showrooms.
