KAMPALA BOMBING: Museveni names Suspected Suicide Bombers

President Museveni

KAMPALA, UGANDA: President Yoweri Museveni has revealed the names of the suspected terrorist attackers who blew themselves up in Kampala on Tuesday Morning killing three and injuring dozens of people in the explosive bomb attack.

Mr. Museveni in a statement released on Tuesday evening identified the three as Musa Mudasir, Mansoor Uthman, and Wanjusi Abdullah, who are all linked to the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebel group.

Unlike what Police had revealed earlier, the President clarified that only two and not three men detonated explosives themselves, one at CPS and another at Parliamentary Avenue.

At CPS, one of the two suicide bombers Mansoor Uthman arrived on foot and detonated the device he was carrying in a back park, while at Parliamentary Avenue, Wanjusi Abdallah came on a motorcycle.

The third terrorist, Musa Mudasir was later arrested and shot in Bwaise after he killed another man.

Mudasir after being shot led investigators to his rented house where they found another Improvised Explosive Device and detonated it.

Mr. Museveni said, Madasir later died.

The President also confirmed Police’s earlier revelation that the attackers were connected to the recent bombings in Kampala and Mpigi and that they were orchestrated by the DRC-based ADF terror group.

“As I told the country before, by attacking Gen. Katumba, these terrorists, exposed themselves at a time when our security (anti-crime) infrastructure has improved, compared to what it was in 2018 when I made the speech to Parliament,” he said.
