The US embassy in Uganda has warned that “there remains a threat of terrorist attacks in Uganda and throughout the region”
The embassy also told US citizens in the country to stay alert and avoid large public gatherings.
This is in response to the evacuation of a business centre in Bunamwaya, where the police recovered an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).
The police had a day before thwarted a suicide bombing attack at Rubaga Miracle Centre, a church operated by the prominent preacher Pastor Robert Kayanja.
Police spokesperson, Mr Fred Enanga told a weekly news conference that a 28-year-old suspected suicide bomber was arrested before he entered the church on Sunday.
He said the arrested suspect is helping the police to locate three others believed to be part of a coordinated plot targeting churches across Uganda.
According to police reports, the man had concealed an improvised explosive device in a food flask placed in a bag.
Security agencies have successfully detonated the explosive, which comprised nails, a cell phone, detonator, booster charger and other components.
