Over 20 police officers are said to be among the 27 people admitted to Mulago Hospital following the twin bomb blasts in Kampala
Mulago National Referral Hospital has confirmed that 27 people have been admitte-d to the casualty wing following the Tuesday morning blasts in Kampala. There are currently 17 police officers admitted to the casualty ward.
At approximately 10:13 a.m., two separate explosions occurred at the Central Police Station-CPS and Kooki Towers along Buganda Road. As well as the IPS building along Parliament Avenue in Kampala’s Central Business District.
One Katongole, a driver for former KMP traffic commander Norman Musinga, one Constable Sebunya, and others only identified as Kanyanya, Kavera, Balingira, Osman, Okot, and Ojira were among those injured.
CPS officers have suffered minor and major injuries to their heads, chests, limbs, arms, and stomachs, among other things.
However, according to Dr. Rosemary Byanyima, the hospital’s deputy executive director, 27 victims are admitte-d, including seven women and twenty men. Though, Byanyima also confirms that seven patients are critically injure-d and require resuscitation.
As the Ministry of Health and Mulago Hospital ambulances continue to admit injured victims, the hospital has called in all available staff to assist with the emergency.
Patients admitted to the casualty ward have moved to other wards to make room for bomb blasts in Kampala victims.
