No Need for Panic Over Terror Threats in Uganda - Museveni

The police have asked Ugandans to take the terror alerts issued seriously after a bomb was found at the entrance of Miracle Centre Cathedral in Rubaga. Police detonated the bomb before tracking down and arresting the suspect. After this incident, President Yoweri Museveni spoke to the nation in a national address, and said church goers not to allow "strangers" in their churches and bars. His advice also extends to hotels, lodges, and other rentals, to ask for identification before allowing access.

Museveni also said there is intelligence confirming that the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), the Ugandan rebel group in the Democratic Republic of Congo, is the force behind this and other bombing attempts.

In November 2021 twin explosions hit Kampala at a police checkpoint and Parliamentary Avenue, leaving three civilians dead and 33 others injured.The explosions, which happened three minutes apart, were carried out by terrorists linked to the ADF, according to police.
