The President spent a greater part of the day assessing the extent at which the bombs hit Kampala in Kyadondo and the Ethiopian Village bar. In Kabalagala, he was particularly surprised on how a bomb could blow off a roof in a small bar fully occupied and none of them was able to notice something was wrong.
The Alshabaab have come out and claimed responsibility of the blasts that rocked Kampala on the July 11 night. President Museveni while addressing a crowd at Kyadondo Rugby Grounds termed the act as: "irresponsible, backward, cowardly. If you want to fight, why don't you look for soldiers and fight them other than targeting people enjoying themselves."
At Kyadondo, he was accompanied by the Mayor of Kampala Al Hajj Nasser Ntege Ssebagala. The President later proceeded to Mulago Hospital where he listened to some of the survivors.
Mulago Hospital was a beehive of activity with many trying to identify their loved ones. Grief and anger was eminent. A statement from Mulago Hospital put the number of those admitted at 58 of which 5 died on arrival, 2 died from the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) as 3 remain in a critical condition.
The Media Center has put the official number of the dead at 74 broken down as 28 Ugandans, 11 Ethiopians, a lady from Ireland, and one from Asian Origin. A total of 33 bodies remain un unidentified.
