President Museveni has confirmed the incident in which a Swift Safaris bus was targeted by an explosive that left one people dead and many other injured along the Kampala-Masaka highway.
Mr. Museveni said in a brief statement last evening that as the hunt for the criminals of Pader who were trying to blow up Gen Lokech’s funeral service, Komamboga where one young Ugandan person was killed and 3 injured, continues, another low power explosive happened on a bus going to Ishaka, killing one person and injuring another one.
The president said the remaining 37 passengers and the driver are safe after the incident but noted investigations were on.
He said Police were investigating whether the person blown up was the one carrying the bomb or not.
He however assured the public that the hunt for the assailants behind the attack is on since clues are “clear and plenty.”
The last evening’s incident comes two days after a similar attack at a popular pork joint in Komamboga, a Kampala suburb which left one person dead and three other injured.
According to security, the incident that has been termed as an act of domestic terror saw crude materials including nails and other crude items used in making the improvised explosive. END
