Ugandan president says bus bombing plotted by ADF
KAMPALA — Uganda on Tuesday said the recent bombing in the central part of the country was planted by the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a rebel group holed up in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni in a statement issued by the State House said the bomb that went off on a bus traveling to western Uganda was planted by the ADF.
Museveni said security identified a person who died in the blast as the bomber. Museveni said the bomber identified as Muzafala, sometimes called Isaac Matovu, and was part of a group of ADF terrorists that were being trailed by the Ugandan security agencies.
The president said it is not clear whether Muzafala blew up himself accidentally or deliberately in the Monday incident.
ADF is an armed group of Ugandan origin. It is reported to be based in the jungles of eastern DRC.
