One person has died and five others were injured after an explosion in Uganda’s capital Kampala, the country’s President Yoweri Museveni said in a tweet Sunday.
“The Information I have is that 3 people came and left a package in Kaveera which later on exploded, killing 1 person and injuring 5 others”, the President tweeted.
“It seems to be a terrorist act,” he added, saying “we shall get the perpetrators.”
The explosion occurred on Saturday.
The police are investigating the incident, President Museveni said, adding that the “public should not fear, we shall defeat this criminality.”
The UK and France warned last week of a heightened terror threat in Uganda.
Britain advised travelers that “terrorists are very likely to try to carry out attacks in Uganda,” and that “attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners.”Internet Explorer Channel Network
