Uganda remains on high alert after Al Shabaab terrorists struck Westgate Shopping Mall in Nairobi, Kenya, killing scores of innocent civilians.

According to the email, which Chimpreports has seen, the plot to bomb to the two upscale shopping malls will be executed by a student at Kampala international University in Ishaka.

Counter Terrorism officials we spoke to on Friday evening denied knowledge of the email.

“The Al Shabaab have on several occasions tried to bomb public places in Kampala in vain. We don’t have specific information of areas being targeted but we appeal for maximum vigilance,” said a senior police officer who preferred anonymity so as to speak freely.

Below is the email in full:


Dear Frank,

This afternoon a student of KIU Ishaka- (Pharmacy student) and a customer of Katwe called 0140584547401 Lukanda Ntwatwa Edwin came in with a brother Patrick Ngomo a soldier and another called Sam.

Edwin told his family that he is expecting 20m= transfer to his account that became questionable and the family wanted to know the source.

As they came to check and on engagement information came out that the boy might be in contact with wrong people who kept calling him and he answered them in Arabic/ Islamic. also said he is expecting to pick a bag from the people he was talking to from Natete tomorrow and planned to be taken to Nakumatt/ Garden City. He appeared unstable as his brothers forced him to talk.

When he was living he advised us not to go to Nakumatt or Garden City over the weekend.

His brother a soldier has advised us that he has picked information from him and was going to share it with CMI.

This is just to let you know about it.
