According to NTV Uganda, the two explosions took place near Uganda’s Parliamentary main gate and near Kampala’s Central Police Station offices.
The cause of the blasts remain unclear, but at least two people have been confirmed dead.
According to news outlets, a local hospital has received 27 injured people, seven of whom are in a critical condition.
A Ugandan military spokesperson told Reuters that there had been “multiple” blasts and “multiple” casualties but did not offer any additional details.
