In just three days, two bomb blasts have claimed two lives. On Saturday night, a bomb explosion at a hangout in Komamboga left a waitress dead and three people injured. On Monday, another person was killed when a bomb exploded on a Swift Safaris bus traveling from the capital Kampala to the western Uganda town of Ishaka.

Security agencies say the bomb blasts are acts of domestic terrorism. The explosions happened days after the United Kingdom (UK) and France warned Ugandans and foreigners that terrorists would launch attacks against the country which contributes troops to the AMISOM peace keeping efforts.

In a statement on the Monday bomb blast that happened in Mpigi, President Museveni noted that investigators were trying to establish if the person killed in the Swift Safaris bomb was a suicide bomber or not, but added there were numerous clear clues.

“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,” said the president Monday night. “The Police are investigating whether the person blown up was the one carrying the bomb or not.”

In another statement issued Tuesday afternoon, Museveni gave more details on the deceased, confirming that he was a wanted terrorist named Muzafala, alias Isaac Matovu, who was linked to Allied Democratic Forces (ADF). “This is to inform you that the person who died in the Ishaka – bound bus yesterday, was a terrorist (mutujju) by the names of Muzafala, but also calling himself Isaac Matovu,” said Museveni.
