Queen Elizabeth: Details of killed tourists revealed

The Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) has identified victims of an attack that occurred at Nyamunuka along Katwe Road, involving two tourists and their guide.

Three individuals were attacked today evening and killed by unknown assailants, who also set their vehicle ablaze. The deceased whose names are withheld, include a Ugandan, a UK citizen and a South African citizen. They were travelling under Gorilla and Wildlife Safaris, a local tour company. In response to this incident, UWA has informed the Uganda Police Force and other security agencies who are working diligently to establish the precise sequence of events leading up to this horrific incident and to identify those responsible.

“We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims, and we share in their grief during this difficult time. The safety and security of tourists visiting our protected areas is of utmost importance to us. We urge the public to remain patient and allow the investigative process to run its course, while refraining from spreading unverified information. Your cooperation is essential in bringing those responsible to justice. All our parks remain open to visitors and we continue to work with other security agencies to ensure that all people who visit our protected areas are safe,” UWA said in a statement Tuesday night.
