President Yoweri Museveni has once again blamed pigs (in reality manipulated and confused Bazzukulu), for carrying out twin blasts in Kampala on Tuesday morning, leaving 6 people, including the three terrorists dead.
In a statement released on Tuesday night, the President noted that the confused fellows blew themselves up, one near the IGG office and the other near CPS.
“At about 10:30hours, the CMI/Police squads injured and captured the third terrorist in the area of Katooke, Bwaise with his bomb. He, later, died but gave us very good information before dying. His name is Musa Mudasiri” the President said in his statement.
According to the information given to the authorities by Mudasiri, the bomber of CPS was identified as Mansoor Uthman and one who detonated at the IGG office is Wanjusi Abdallah.
“All these are part of the ADF group that attacked Gen. Katumba in June. 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” the president added.
This is contrary to the police statement indicating that there were two bombers outside the IGG’s office, not just one as indicated by the President.
According to a statement released by police spokesperson Fred Enanga earlier in the day, two suicide bombers died at Parliamentary avenue, while another died at CPS after blowing themselves up.
Moze was arrested in Bwaise with another bomb, bringing the number to four.
Since the attack on Gen. Katumba, the president explains that seven (7) have been killed while resisting arrest, Eighty-one (81) have been arrested, and 3 have been killed by the bombs they were carrying.
Adding that the 2 of today were, therefore, running away from being arrested.
“We have been hunting for them since the Katumba incident. Those killed since the Katumba incident are 1. Nsubuga Mohammed; 2. Manihaji; 3. Moses Mudasiri (the one of today); 4. Master Lubwama; 5. Juma Saidi; 6. Serwadda Juma; and 7. Amin Kawawa Mustapha” Mr. Museveni said.
The president also noted in his statement, that the one who blew himself in the bus was Matovu Muzafari. He also says the number of injured persons is now at 36 and not 33 as earlier reported by police.
Apart from hunting the terrorists, Museveni says the country’s strategy of vigilance (alertness), is helping to minimize damage. He called on members of the public to maintain vigilance of checking people at entry points to parks, churches, mosques, markets, among other places.
He further says that the Police will issue guidelines regarding securing the check-points because the check-points are protecting the buildings and the occupants.
“We are working with the neighbors to deal with those operating from outside. They have exposed themselves when we are more ready for urban terrorism. They will perish. Rural terrorism was defeated in 2007 in the Semliki National Park. I am referring to the dead terrorists as manipulated victims of confusion. The real pigs are people like Nsubuga, the so-called Sheikh that confused young people at Lweza. If blowing oneself up will send one to Jaanaa, let him blow himself up as an example instead of manipulating young children. Three (3) IED (Improvised Explosive Devices) have been recovered including the one of today. The terrorists invited us and we are coming for them” the President concluded.
