    THE Police has paraded a Tanzanian national; a key suspect in last year’s twin bomb blasts that killed more than 70 people in Kampala.

    Hijar Seleman Nyamadondo, 31, was paraded at the Rapid Response Unit (RRU) headquarters in Kireka amid tight security hours after he was extradited to Uganda by the Tanzanian authorities.

    The Police called for increased vigilance, saying terror threats were still a possibility.

    “The terror threats are still real and we must remain vigilant,” police counter terrorism boss Abas Byakagaba who was flanked by his deputy John Ndugutse said.

    Nyamadondo, Police said, was arrested and extradited for his role in the July 11 twin bombings that left 79 people dead and more 50 injured.

    “He is the one who transported the three bombs from Kenya, through our borders to Kampala where they were used in the attacks,” Ndugutse said.

    Nyamadondo, he said, was extradited after a Uganda court issued a warrant of arrest.

    “The courts in Tanzania found it necessary to surrender him to Uganda,” Ndugutse said.

    “The court process ended yesterday (Monday) and we brought him over immediately,” Byakagaba said adding that that Nyamadondo faces charges of murder and attempted murder.

    Sources yesterday said Nyamadondo, a resident of Arusha and a director of Kamanga Rumagambo investments was flown in at in the wee hours of the morning.

    The bespectacled and bearded, Nyamadondo who was dressed in a spotted, checked long sleeved shirt and a pair of jeans trousers was briefly paraded before the media at Rapid Response Unit in Kireka.

    The Nakawa Chief Magistrates Court late last year put three Tanzanians, Nyamadondo among them on the wanted list in connection with last year’s incident.

    Byakagaba also defended the recent security deployments in the country saying the security of the elections cannot be delinked from national security especially with terror attacks fresh in the minds of the electorate.

    More than 30 suspects have been arrested and face trial in connection with last year’s terror attacks.

    Al Qaeda and Somali islamists militia, al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the bombings saying they were retaliatory attacks for Uganda’s deployment of troops in Somalia on an AU peace keeping mission.

    Mtuhumiwa wa mabomu apelekwa Uganda


    Mmoja wa washukiwa wa mabomu yaliyotokea Uganda tarehe 11 mwezi wa 2010 mjini Kampala Uganda ambapo watu zaidi ya 70 waliuawa, hatimae yuko mikononi mwa polisi ya Uganda. Mshukiwa huyo ni raia wa Tanzania na amewasili Uganda akitokea Tanzania.

    Msako wa polisi ya Uganda kwa ushirikiano na polisi wa nchi jirani pamoja na polisi ya kimataifa Interpool, kuwatafuta walioshiriki na kupanga mashambulio hayo ya ya mabomu unazidi kupata matunda.
    Akitajwa kwa jina la Hija Suleman Nyamondondo mwenye umri wa miaka 31 raia wa Tanzania inasemekana mchango wake katika shughuli hiyo nzima ilikuwa kusafirisha mabomu hayo kuyaingiza Uganda. Hawakusema kuwa aliyatoa wapi lakini imesisitizwa yeye ndie alibeba jukumu la kuzifikisha Uganda. Mwaka jana mkuu wa polisi ya Uganda alikuwa amelalamikia Tanzania imekataa kushirikiana nae kumpeleka kijana huyo nchini Uganda.
    Amewasili uwanja wa Ndege wa Entebbe alfajiri ya siku ya Jumanne katika ndege ndogo na kupokelewa na maafisa polisi chini ya ulinzi mkali. Mikono ya Suleman ilikuwa imefungwa pingu na pia minyororo ilifungwa miguuni kwake. Mabomu aliyoleta moja ililipuka katika uwanja wa mchezo wa raga wa Kyandondo, eneo la Lugogo ambapo watu wengi waliuawa jingine katika mkahawa mmoja wa Ethiopian Village mtaa wa Kabalaga.
    Kukamtwa kwa mshukiwa huyo kumejumulisha wote kufikia 30 ambao wanakabiliwa na mashataka ya kuua watu 72 na kuwajeruhi wengine wengi katika milipuko ya mwezi wa Julai. Mbali na Waganda kuna Wakenya, Wasomali pamoja na raia wa Pakistan
