The International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) condemns

the Kampala Terrorist attacks

 

The International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) strongly condemns the blatant act of

bombing the Rugby club and Ethiopian restaurant in Kampala on 11th July 2010 which killed more than 70

innocent people and injured many others. The Executive Secretary of the ICGLR, Ambassador Liberata

Mulamula in her condolence message to H.E. President Yoweri Museveni, the Government and the people of

the Republic of Uganda has expressed the following:

It is with great shock that we have received the sad news of the bomb blasts in Kampala on 11th July 2010

which killed more than 70 innocent people and injured many others who were innocently watching a football

match. This terrorist barbaric and cowardly attack on innocent people can not be justified by any reason

whatsoever and we condemn it in the strongest terms.

I would like on behalf of the Secretariat of the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR)

and my own behalf, to convey my heartfelt condolences to Your Excellency the people and the Government of

the Republic of Uganda. We strongly condemn the attack on innocent people and it is our sincere hope that the

perpetrators of the crime will be apprehended and brought to justice.

The death of these innocent people is a great loss to Uganda and to the entire Region. This heinous and

horrendous act on one of our Member States renews our determination as the ICGLR to collectively rid the

region of the negative forces as well as eradicate illegal proliferation of small arms and light weapons in the

interest of sustainable peace, stability security and development.

I wish to take this opportunity to assure Your Excellency and the people of Uganda of our support and solidarity

during this difficult moment of sorrow. We pray that the Almighty God may grant the bereaved families the

strength to bear this heavy loss.

The International Conference on the Great Lakes Region (ICGLR) as an intergovernmental organization whose

membership includes Uganda and other 10 countries in the Great Lakes Region committed themselves under

the Pact on Security, Stability and Development in the Great Lakes Region, to collectively fight the illegal

armed groups or insurgents involved in acts of violence, terrorism, subversion against the government of

another state. The Member States also committed to fight transnational crime and terrorism. It is in this regard

that ICGLR strongly condemns these terrorist attacks and expresses solidarity with the Government and people

of the Republic of Uganda in fighting terrorism and all acts aimed at destabilizing the country and the region at

large.
