Story By Benjamin Jumbe

The Uganda Wildlife Authority Spokesperson Jossy Muhangi says the clashes as seen on various media platforms have threatened tourists and many have cancelled their bookings which is a loss to the economy.

Although Muhangi has not stated the exact number of Tourists who have canceled their booking and travel to Uganda, he says most tourists would want to visit Queen Elizabeth national Park in kasese but they can’t risk now.

Muhangi adds that if the instability continues and spreads to greater kasese area, this could also force some wildlife elephants which are very fearful of bullet sound to migrate to neighboring countries.
