try geneva;”>“Counter terrorism and Bomb Squad personnel stormed the area at 7am where they retrieved the grenade covered in a plastic bag,” said an impeccable police source.

We are reliably informed that the explosive was taken to Naguru Forensics laboratory.

It’s yet unclear who could have planted the grenade but Al Shabaab terrorists who struck Kampala in 2010 have on several occasions threatened to hit the city again.

Kampala Metropolitan Spokesperson Ibin Ssenkumbi was not readily available for comment.

This website has been reliably informed that the grenade found at Nakivubo could be thrown by hand and was capable of killing over 15 people in a crowded place.

The incident comes hardly a month when Police recovered a grenade at Pastor Samuel Kakande’s Synagogue Church of All Nations in Mulago.

While Police denied finding the explosive at the church, our security sources said, it was hidden in a loud speaker on October 10.

The Inspector General of Police, Lt Gen Kale Kayihura later admitted that indeed major terrorists plans had been thwarted included a bomb strike in Mulago area during the Uganda @50 Independence Celebrations.

Kayihura said the 2010 July bombing at Lugogo and Kabalagala in Kampala led to increased collaboration between the global Anti-terrorism agencies and States to find common ground through intelligence sharing, sharing resources in combating acts of terrorism, technical cooperation, training, investigations and prosecution of the offenders.

“It is as a result of the global concerted efforts at fighting terrorism that Uganda was able to team with operatives from countries like USA, Britain, Germany, Kenya, Tanzania and others to investigate and apprehend the perpetuators of the heinous crimes,” the police boss told press a few weeks ago.

The Uganda Police Force and its sister security agencies recently inform the owners of places of entertainments and the general public to tighten security around their premises in order to check on suspected terrorists or any threat.

“We request the general public to be on the lookout for suspicious objects around them and to inform Police immediately. The toll free numbers to call are0800199399, or 0800199699 0r 0421222,” a Police statement read in part.

Security has been reinforced at Nakivubo in preparation for any potential terrorist strike.
