President Museveni has assured the public that the perpetrators of the Saturday night bombing will be brought to justice as soon as possible.
A significant blast occurred on Saturday night at Digida pork business in Komamboga, Kawempe Division, Kampala, injuring numerous individuals. It is thought that the blast was caused by a bomb.
However, when asked about the incident, the president stated that one person was murdered and five others were injured as a result of the explosion.
“According to the information I have, three people arrived to Kaveera and left a package, which later exploded, killing one person and injuring five others.” “It appears to be a terrorist act, but we will apprehend the perpetrators,” Museveni stated early Sunday.
He stated that security has begun an investigation into the incident before issuing a final report, but guaranteed the public that the offenders will be brought to justice.
“The public should have no fear; we will overcome this criminality just as we have all other criminality committed by swine who have no regard for life.”
The incident occurred, according to eyewitnesses, when two males who happened to be patrons at the pork spot came in and requested beverages.
They are also believed to have placed a polythene bag under one of the joint’s tables, which later exploded, wounding numerous customers.
The news comes only days after the British and French embassies issued warnings about probable terrorist threats.
The UK government recently advised individuals to use caution while entering busy areas such as restaurants, bars, and hotels.
Despite the fact that counter-terrorism teams take such warnings seriously and seriously, authorities said they will not raise the threat level.
“We want to reassure you that such alerts are validated by our combined counter-terrorism teams. On Monday, police spokesperson Fred Enanga stated, “We take time to analyze them (threats) to ascertain if the attack is impending in nature.”
“We have foiled multiple plots both from outside and within our country since 2010.” We are continuing to assess the country’s security posture. The public should remain calm and carry on with their daily routines while remaining attentive.”
