In a Tuesday afternoon statement, Museveni said the man killed in the bus explosion was a one Muzafala, alias Isaac Matovu, who is believed to be a terrorist belonging to Allied Democratic Forces (ADF).

“What is not yet clear, is whether Muzafala blew himself up accidentally while carrying the bomb on his lap or he did so deliberately.  However, he was being followed by CMI squads.  We shall get all of them,” added Museveni.

The President says that Muzafala was part of the group that had planned to blow up mourners during the funeral of late Maj Gen Lokech’s funeral in Pader. He added that Muzafala’s colleague, a one Abdu Katumba, was arrested in a Pader Hotel with his bomb-making equipment and has since been paraded before court. Museveni further noted that Muzafala’s other collaborator was Hamid Nsubuga who had fled from Pader to Kampala but was later killed by Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) operatives as he tried to resist arrest.

Museveni further noted that Muzafala’s fate points to how Ugandan security forces are steadily dismantling ADF and other terror groups.

“The killing of Nsubuga, the arrest of Katumba, plus the killing of Lubwama Hussein others that were involved in the attack of Katumba, and the arrest of Walusimbi Kamada, and five others that were also involved in the attack of Katumba has enabled Police and CMI, to arrest a large number of suspected operatives of ADF. Arresting or killing these suspected criminals led to the hunt for Muzafala and others who are still on the run in Uganda and outside,” said the general from Rwakitura. “The breakthrough followed the attack on Katumba.  That is when full accountability for the ADF criminals irreversibly started and their impunity ended in the phase of urban terrorism.” (For comments on this story, call, text or whatsapp us on 0705579994, 0779411734, 0200900416 or email us atmulengera2040@gmail.com).
