Residents in Kizito zone in Luwero Town Council in Luwero district have been thrown into panic after sighting an abandoned object which they suspected to be a bomb.

The object which was wrapped in a light-green polythene bag was seen in a garden at around mid-day today near St. Anthony Medicare Clinic in Kizito Zone.

The concerned locals were scared as they tipped off each other about the object. They then tipped off Luwero Central Police Station (CPS) which is about half a kilometer away from the scene. Police was deployed to attend to the scare.

However, after the deployment of sniffer dogs, it was established that it not a bomb. The police’s bomb squad then moved closer to the object and after over an hour established that it was a Calabash wrapped in a polythene bag.

When questioned about the development, Felix Mugizi, the Luwero District Police Commander (DPC)  told Uganda Radio Network (URN) that: “It wasn’t a bomb.” Isah Ssemwogerere, the Savannah Regional Police publicist told URN that locals should continue exercising this remarkable vigilance to keep bomb scares at bay.

Police says they are still investigating the motive of the person who dropped this object at that place. On Friday, a Mercedes Benz belonging to Suzan Amero, the Amuria Woman MP, caused a false bomb scare at parliament when it made a loud bang.

Amero had raised the car's suspension while driving on rough roads but forgot to lower it back upon returning to the smooth tarmac. The GL20 CDI 4MATIC can be adjusted to suit road conditions.

These two incidents, the one at parliament and this one in Luwero come just days after a terror attack in Kampala. On Tuesday bombs went off at Parliamentary Avenue (IPS Building) and the other opposite the Central Police Station (CPS). The attacks left seven people dead and 37 injured.
