The Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the twin blasts that rocked Kampala yesterday killing six people and injuring at least 30.

According to the BBC, IS issued a statement on its Telegram channel, then reported by its Amaq News Agency, saying that its members carried out the attacks.

President Museveni in a statement blamed ADF rebels for the blasts and vowed to wipe them out.

However, ADF pledged its allegiance to IS in 2019.

There have been a number of bomb explosions in recent weeks. Last month, a 20-year-old waitress was killed after a device, left in a shopping bag, detonated at a pork joint in Komamboga Parish, Kawempe division.

Days later several people were injured when a suicide bomber blew himself up in a bus near Kampala.

IS claimed both attacks, and police said there were close links with ADF – including the bus bomber being on a wanted list of ADF members.
