KAMPALA- SHIFTMEDIA- The two separate bombs that hit a Kampala suburb in Komamboga and a bus in Mpigi along the Masaka Highway was linked to the Allied Democratic Forces Police has disclosed.
The two bomb incidents left two people dead and scores injured.
But police in a statement said the person who died in the Swift Bus suspected bomb explosion was a suicide bomber linked to the ADF who are operating the areas of eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)
Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga said the results of forensics done on the remnants of the bomb that exploded on Monday evening gives clues to the ADF as the people behind the attacks.
“We have established from the hallmarks of the attack and the bomb materials recovered, a connection with the attack that occurred three days ago in Komamboga and could have been prepared in one place or by the same group of attackers. This, therefore, implies that the attackers are using different strategies of suicide vests and belts, armed assailants on boda-bodas or motorcycles, and physical bomb attacks, targeting soft spots,”Enanga said.
He said the attackers are after soft targets promising that security would soon wipe them off.
Enanga said the suspected suicide bomber who perished in the Swift Bus incident was identified as Mustapha Musoke a resident of Kamuli A Ward in Kireka.
However local leaders in Kireka have expressed dismay regarding reports that the attacker was their residents. The Kamuli A Area Chairperson said he doesn’t know the attacker and he has never been a resident of his area.
