Another bomb blast occurred within three minutes at Raja Chambers and Jubilee Insurance Building along the Parliament Avenue.

Both scenes have been cordoned off by our Joint Counter-terror task teams, victims rushed to Mulago national hospital though 5 of the victims are critically injured.
The Police PRO attributed the attacks to the ADF linked radicalized groups, whom he said still have a desire to carry out lethal attacks, on soft targets, with suicide attackers and improvised explosive devices.
He encouraged businesses and the public to voluntarily report suspicious activities, such as buying large amounts of chemicals and materials that can be used to build bombs.
