Al-shabaab militants are planning to carry out terrorist attacks in two cities of Dar es Salaam and Mwanza, The Guardian on Sunday has learnt.

Information that started circulating in public domain early yesterday stated that the Islamist militant group is operating under detour camouflage to organise terror activities in the country’s big cities.

The plot to inflict terror mayhem among Dar es Salaam and Mwanza dwellers would target Uganda as well, the civic intelligence reads, but without mentioning the location.

This paper took it up to establish the authenticity of the information and revealed that security sources were also working with the second ear.

The information that sparked attention of both local and international social media and spread first to the newsmen reads that BREAKING NEWS: The Australian, UK and US Governments have issued an enhanced terrorist alert for Uganda. Al Jazeera TV have intimated possible attacks in Mwanza and Dar es Salaam in Tanzania.
