According to the latest reports, 17 people have been injured in the Kampala twin explosions that went off on Tuesday morning.

According to the medical personnel, out of the 17 injured people, 12 have been referred to Mulago hospital while the five have been managed and discharged.

Security personnel have cordoned off the two areas in the heart of Kampala where two explosions happened this morning.

The Red Cross officials have been seen attending to some of the people who were injured in the twin explosions, with ambulances seen ferrying some of the critically injured to Mulago national referral hospital for further management.

Earlier, the police ordered the immediate evacuation of the Speaker of Parliament and MPs as well as all workers at Kampala Capital City Authority which is located right next to parliament.
