The three suicide bombers who blew themselves up in Kampala on Tuesday have been named by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.
Mansoor Uthman, one of the bombers whose homemade device exploded near the Central Police Station at 10:03 a.m., has been identified.

Three minutes later, two suicide bombers detonated near the Jubilee Insurance Building. Wanjusi Abdallah and Matovu Muzafari have been named by President Museveni.

At 10:30 a.m., police apprehended a fourth suspected suicide bomber in the Katooke neighborhood.

Museveni claimed that the suspect, Musa Mudasiri, who was shot and injured, revealed the identities of the other three suicide bombers.

The attackers, according to the President, were members of the Allied Defence Forces, a long-standing insurgent group that “attacked and injured [Uganda’s Transport Minister and former Army leader] Gen. Katumba Wamala in June 2021.”

The shooting killed Katumba’s daughter and his driver. Men on motorcycles allegedly fired several bullets at their vehicle near their Kampala house, according to witnesses.

“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 gave the speech to Parliament,” Museveni said in a message released on Twitter late Tuesday night.

“Seven [suspected terrorists] have been killed while fighting arrest, 81 have been detained, and three have been murdered by the bombs they were carrying since the attack on Gen. Katumba.”

“As a result, the two of today (Tuesday, November 16) were fleeing from arrest.” “Since the Katumba tragedy, we’ve been on the lookout for them,” remarked the President.

According to Museveni, three civilians were killed and 36 were injured in the Tuesday attack.

“The suicide bombers at both the CPS and the IGG offices were obliged to blow their devices at the police checkpoint outside the CPS office, as well as outside the IGG office.” As a result, the public should keep alert at entry points to parks, churches, mosques, markets, and other public places,” he urged.

Uganda, according to Museveni, is “more than ready for urban terrorism (sic).”

“They’re going to die.” In the Semliki National Park in 2007, rural terrorism was subdued. I’m referring to the assassinated terrorists as manipulated victims of befuddlement… We were invited by the terrorists, and we are coming after them.”
