so hard to fathom... just left Kampala a few days ago. Such a peaceful, friendly place.
News in from friend in Kampala to re-assure anyone worried about folks out there.
<<This is to let you know that there was a bomb thrown in Kampala while people were watching world cup last night.This is confirmed to have been done by the Somali's terrorists that didn't like the idea of Uganda sending its army to Somalia to help with peace keeping in their country.
We thank God that the USA government is very supportive of the Ugandan government to fight them and they are ensuring tight security all over the country here. Good thing is that the city is normal and all activities and businesses are running fine. All clients on safari are safe and are doing there trips as planned.
This is some thing that just happened in Kampala and all our clients on safari are fine and there is enough security. So all client's trips are still going on as planned without any interruption.>>
Hope this helps.
Thank you for the update, mfuwe.
Sensible idea Muguruki. Its where I go anyway.
Further news. Two more Bombs failed to go off on Sunday. One was spotted in a Bar and staff thought it was lost luggage and put it on the counter for collection. Then opened it and saw the phone and the packets.
The other seems to have been a suicider who lost his faith in meeting the 7 virgins and legged it.
Five arrests, some of whom don't speak English. Sure sign of guilt.
Thanks for the update. I didn't know about the 2 failed bombs. I am taking your advice and will do outings on the next trip in the Entebbe area. I have been wanting to explore there more anyhow!
mfuwe - looks like you're right - he's not going to take it lying down.....
