Explosion in Kyanja komamboga area. Reports indicate one lady has died as she was being rushed to hospital and two other people are injured. Security yet to establish the nature of device that exploded.
This comes days after the United Kingdom(UK) had warned of a possible terror attack on Uganda but the Ugandan police quickly dismissed the claims and urged its citizens not to panic as everything was fine and that Ugandan intelligence had not picked up on such information.
According to the report by UK it warned that citizens should be cautious while at any public gathering like Hotels, Churches and other facilities that people do crowd. They also went ahead to highlight that the attack might be indiscriminate (it could happen anywhere) in Uganda.
Our team on the ground are interviewing one local and here is what he has said concerning the blast “Very sad for the lives lost & those injured. That place has been a disaster waiting to happen. A friend took me there once & i couldn't believe the sea of people who were entering without any checks. Friends kindly avoid such places as they're soft targets for criminals,” he said.
