KAMPALA, June 2, 2016
A Ugandan court on Wednesday 1st June 2016 recharged five suspects of the 2010 Kampala bombing days after they were acquitted.
Court ordered police to re-arrest them to face fresh charges, with Prosecutor saying the five may help conspirators to carry out fresh attacks after some their colleagues were imprisoned.
The court last Thursday acquitted the five of charges of terrorism, murder, attempted murder and imprisoned eight other suspects who were found guilty. Four Kenyans, 3 Ugandans and a Tanzanian were among the imprisoned.
Kampala bombing is considered the worst attack to happen in Uganda. The twin bombs detonated during the screening of 2010 World Cup final at the Kyadondo Rugby Ground and a restaurant in Kampala on July 11, 2010, killing 76 people and leaving scores with critical injuries.
Somali based Islamist group, Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the twin attacks saying they were revenging for Uganda’s contribution of its troops to the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).
