Kampala – 16, November 2021: Kampala Capital City on Tuesday morning reportedly recorded two separate bomb blasts. One blast happened at Kooki Towers opposite Kampala central Police Station.

- Lango clergy appeal to security to sensitize worshippers about explosives
- Lira RCC to peace disruptors: “We are watching you“
This is the third blasts in less than 30 days after the Komaboga blast on October 23, outside Kampala in which one died.
Another blast would later take place in a bus heading towards Western Uganda from Kampala. Last month (October), Police said the attacks were “an act of domestic terror.”
However, IS later said they were behind the attack, as reported by Reuters.
As reported by NTV Uganda, Salim Uhuru, Mayor of Kampala Central Division lost a friend in the blast. The deceased has been identified as Katongole.
The Tuesday blasts comes with less than three days to President Museveni’s national address on Friday. According to President’s press secretary Lindah Wamboka, Museveni will speak on “the current Covid-19 situation and related matters”.
Now, with continuous daring of Uganda by those he calls “pigs”, the nation should expect him to talk matters of security, as well.
