Bomb discovered in Sembabule forest, detonated

The police counter-terrorism unit and bomb squad personnel on Wednesday rushed to Nakasagazi village, Kasongi parish in Kawanda sub-country, Sembabule to retrieve a bomb that was discovered in a forest.

It is reported that children who had gone to collect firewood, saw the unexploded rusty projectile which had been abandoned for some time. 

The naïve youngsters took it to a butcher who chose to use it to weigh beef - unaware of what it was and the danger it posed to him and other community members. 

Fortunately, one of the keen residents saw it and informed the local authorities in time for immediate action. According to Ben Lubega, the Nakasagazi LC I chairman, they immediately informed the police and the army to take over the situation.

He explains that they did not know that such a deadly weapon existed in their community. Muhammad Nsubuga confirmed that the bomb squad from Kampala has cordoned off the area, retrieved the projectile, and later detonated it from a safer area.

Community members have been urged to report any suspicious objects to the authorities for safety. He further appealed to the public to emphasize neighbourhood watch to identify and report suspicious objects and people that may cause danger to their communities. 

The development comes at the time when Uganda is faced with a terror threat after two separate bombs exploded at an eating point in Komamboga and on a bus, killing two people and injuring several others.

There is no armed struggle against Museveni except his police/army or those who were with him, but didn't get their share of the loot & are angry, but terrorise Ugandans, just as Museveni does!

Museveni is using the term "terrorists to lure the outside world to support him against Ugandans!

Terrorist chief Museveni MUST be stopped in UNITY or he will get worse!

No dictator survives UNITED action of a people & Uganda will be no exception when our people UNITE.

Why will Ugandans go for next fake elections to ensure Museveni's 45 years in power?

*Saying NO to the tribalistic system,

*UNITY around ONE opposition leader, are all Ugandans need to end Museveni's lifetime rule!

Then Ugandans will have to form the kind of governance they want immediately!

Why are tribal leaders still ensuring tribal division, thus Museveni's & his son's post?

Am I the only one who sees the discrepancy in these latest terror bombing/ ! bomb killed only 1 person and so did the second while the bus was undamaged.

If you see the real terror bombing in the middle East buildings are damaged 100s killed.

Not to thank God for the minimum deaths or anything but the timing when m7 is trying to push his unpopular bail reform is suspect.

The remains of Kaguta's military hardware during the time when he was terrorising innocent Ugandans under the pretext of waging a war of liberation!!!

Liberation of who? His stomack from hunger and poverty!!!

Now that he has become a billionaire and his clansmen are millionaires, he does not care about the lives of poor Ugandans!

Thanks.

Only Museveni's war dogs have arms/bombs & now he's using it to get outside support saying there are terrorists in Uganda, knowing trembling Ugandans will go along with his lies!

How can Ugandans, not at armed war against Museveni, have bombs & use at will?

Not even UK will help Ugandans as long as the tribalistic system stands!

Thanks.

The only terrorists with arms/bombs are Museveni's war dogs, who want Ugandans to look up to them for protection, thus continuity of Museveni!

Ugandans, please, bring down the tribalistic system & UNITE NOW, before Museveni destroys you completely, while USA/EU/UN watch in silence, because it's Ugandans to whom tribal lands belong who still want Museveni!

What are Ugandans waiting for, next fake election to further protect & ensure Museveni's 45 years in power?
