Police on Bomb attacks

As the country continues to battle isolated bomb blasts and threats, the Uganda Police Force has asked mobile money operators and fuel dealers to report any suspicious financial transactions.

This call comes as the country has witnessed three separate bomb explosions that have left four people dead and several others injured.

On October 23, a bomb exploded at a pork joint in Komamboga. Two days later, another went off inside a Swift Bus in Mpigi along the Kampala-Masaka Highway. The most recent incident happened in Ssegalye village, Semuto Subcounty in Nakaseke District where two children, aged 11 and 14, died shortly after a bomb blast.

Police Chief Political Commissar, Asan Kasingye, says the business community, especially mobile money agents and fuel dealers, should start monitoring any unusual and suspicious transactions and inform the police.

”the business community especially fuel and mobile money dealers should look out for any unusual transactions ,take interest in somebody withdrawing lots of money at awkward hours ,you can see there is something wrong, even in the banks where you keep your money they take interest in the withdraws and banking that you make.It can be a pointer,he said

His plea follows a report last week by Fred Enanga, the Police Spokesperson, indicating that Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) is funding its illicit terror attacks in Uganda through petroleum companies.
