The President of Uganda, Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, has condemned the terrorist attack on tourists in Queen Elizabeth National Park that took place on October 17, 2023.

He described the incident in a statement today, October 18, 2023, as most unfortunate, infuriating, and a cowardly act on the part of the terrorists.

“A couple of tourists and the Ugandan driver with them were killed at around 1800 hrs on the Katwe-Kabatooro murram road by a small group of terrorists running away from our operations in DR Congo, as I had shared with you in a previous message,” the President stated.

“It was a cowardly act on the part of the terrorists, attacking innocent civilians and tragic for the couple who were newlyweds and visiting Uganda on their honeymoon. Of course, these terrorists will pay with their own wretched lives,” he added.

The President said that killing these wretched individuals will not bring back the lives of these wonderful friends of Uganda who had chosen our country for their honeymoon out of the 193 countries in the world.

He also said that the Uganda High Commission in the UK will reach out to their families and provide whatever support is necessary in this tragic situation.
