Reading time 1 min.

An unexploded bomb was yesterday discovered by Uganda police in a disco hall shortly after two bomb blasts killed over seventy people in the east African country.

According to Kale Kaihura, Uganda’s police topmost boss, the unexploded
bomb vest was discovered yesterday at 2.30 pm and detonated by Uganda police bomb experts.

Addressing the press Tuesday in Kampala, Kaihura said,”The bomb was
found in Makindye disco hall. It is likely that it was supposed to explode with the other two which exploded during world cup finals but maybe the one supposed to set it off feared and left it there.”

Kaiuhura also said that a belt used by suicide bombers was also discovered
at the scene which means that suicide bombers could have set off the
bombs last Sunday.

Meanwhile, Uganda police have indicated that some of the materials similar to those in the bomb vest were also found at in the scenes where bombs exploded Sunday at Ethopian restaurant and Kyadondo Rugby ground in the suburbs of Kampala.

Death toll of the Sunday bombings has risen to 76. “The number of people who died from the bomb blasts on Sunday has risen to 76 after two more people died in hospital,” said Kale Kaihura.
