Museveni Breaks Silence On Yesterday's Night Explosion In Kampala

The President of Uganda Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has broken silence after yesterday's explosion in Uganda's capital, Kampala.

Through social media, Museveni released a statement asserting that the incident might have been a terror-related act.

"The information I have is that three people came and left a package in kaveera (polythene bag) which later on exploded. It seems to be a terrorist act but we shall get the perpetrators,'' Mr Museveni explained in a statement through social media. 

He went on to reiterate that the police were on the ground conducting their investigations and assured civilians of sharing more information, once they are out.

He concludes by urging Ugandans not to be frightened adding that their security was guaranteed, pinpointing that they will defeat terrorists who have no respect for life.

So far no terrorist group has claimed the explosion which left two people dead and serious injuries to at least seven people.
