Days later, another person was confirmed dead and another injured in a suspected bomb explosion in a Swift Bus at Lungala, Mpigi town council.
The incident involved a moving bus, registration number UAU 989T. The bus was heading to Bushenyi. According to President Museveni “Preliminary reports say that the blast was from the seat and it killed only that person and injured the one who was sitting behind. The hunt continues, the clues are CLEAR and PLENTY.”
The President further disclosed that the victim on the bus was a sucide bomber.
In October, the United Kingdom warned of possible terror attacks on Uganda but the Ugandan police dismissed off the warning.
