dWeb.News Article from Daniel Webster dWeb.News


Regional leaders condemned the terrorist attacks on Uganda’s capital Kampala and pledged support to curb the vice.

African Union Commission Chairperson Moussa Faki Mahamat condemned the incident in which three people were killed and more than 30 injured, and offered the support of the continental body in securing the region.

Faki stated that the AU stands in total solidarity with the people of Uganda as it searches for answers to the incidents.

Dr Workneh Gabeyehu, Executive Secretary of the regional bloc Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), stated that the seven member countries will aid Uganda in its fight against terrorism, “according to the principles of rule-of-law and respect for human rights.”

Two separate but related incidents occurred on Tuesday when suicide bombers set off bombs in two Kampala streets.

CCTV footage captured a man with a backpack and walking near the Central Police Station just before the explosion. CCTV footage captured two men in bodaboda setting off a bomb at the Jubilee Insurance Building on Parliament Avenue. The explosions claimed that the three suicide bombers were killed, according to police.

“The United States strongly condemns today’s terrorist attack on central Kampala,” stated the US Mission to Uganda. It also condoled with the families of those who have lost loved ones.

” The United States supports Ugandans with unwavering support as we strive to achieve our common goal of a secure and democratically-governed Uganda. “

Although police did not identify the bombers last night, Fred Enanga, a spokesperson for the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), told media that they were allies of the banned Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), whose leader Jamil Mutulu is currently in a Ugandan prison.

“It is clear that ADF-linked radicalised organizations still want to carry out lethal strikes on soft targets with suicide attackers or improvised explosive device,” Mr Enanga said at a Kampala press briefing.

Police stated that there may be more planned attacks.

One device was located near the Central Police Station. This is where the first bomb went off earlier in the morning. Other devices were found around the market. Responding police destroyed all the bombs.

Another fourth suspected bomber was arrested in Bwaise, a township in Kampala.
