Shs20 Million Reward for Information on Blast Suspects

KAMPALA (UG) –Security has announced a Shs20 million bounty on two men they believe are behind the two blasts that went off on Saturday night injuring one person.

In a statement released by the deputy Defense spokesperson, Col Deo Akiiki, the two improvised explosive devices exploded in Kikubamutwe, Kabalagala and another in Nabweru, Nansana Municipality.

He added that the improvised explosive device (IED) that exploded in Nabweru was allegedly planted by two young men on the same day after hiring the rental for three months and left in the room where the explosion took place.

The IED that exploded in Kabalagala was left at a veranda of a house in a busy street.The army has since released two photos of men suspected to have been behind the two blasts and placed a Shs20 million bounty on each head.

Col Akiiki said in a statement last evening that investigations into the matter continue but asked the general public to be vigilant and security conscious as the festive season approaches.

President Yoweri Museveni yesterday also urged citizens in public places like churches, markets, mosques and leisure centres, to be vigilant of strange faces and revenge attacks from the ADF rebel group, after revealing that seven of their camps had been devastated last week in the ongoing Operation Shujaa in the DRC.
