Nakaseke bomb explosion kills one, others injured

At least one person has been confirmed dead, and two others injured following a bomb blast in Kapeeka, Nakaseke district.

Savana Region police spokesperson Isah Semwogerere confirmed the incident and said that the deceased has been identified as Alfred Mandela, a scrap dealer in Kapeeka Town.

“It is unfortunate. One person has died, the other injured persons are at Nakaseke Hospital,” Semwogerere said.

Preliminary reports suggested that Mandela, while sorting the scrap at his store started tinkering with a Rocket Propelled Grenade (RPG), which exploded, leaving him with severe injuries that he later succumbed to.

District officials said at press time that they were waiting for bomb experts to carry out more investigations on the device that exploded.

Kapeeka LC3 chairperson Moses Ssenfuma told journalists that scrap dealers should be careful while looking for metallic items.

Ssenfuma urged security officials to investigate and find out where the devices are coming from.

This comes just hours after another suspected bomb blast injured two children in Kujji 1 village, Kujji parish in Tirinyi town council Kibuku District.

Fatuma Kabasa, the juveniles’ mother said she was in the kitchen when she had the loud bang and wonders where and how her children picked the bomb.
