Security forces are currently in pursuit of suspected ADF rebels following an unfortunate incident in Queen Elizabeth National Park, where two foreign tourists and a Ugandan were reported to have been killed.
The police spokesperson, Fred Enanga, confirmed the incident, adding that the alleged rebels had set fire to their vehicle following the attack.
The event took place near Lake Nyamunanuka in Kasese district, located in western Uganda. This incident occurs in the wake of a recent ambush by suspected rebels, where two individuals were killed, and a box body truck was set ablaze in Katholhu village along the Kasese-Mpondwe border highway, close to Rusese barracks.
Additionally, the attackers also targeted a Land Cruiser vehicle, registered as UBF 303C and owned by Wild Gorilla Safaris. Fred Enanga, the police spokesperson, made a public acknowledgment of the assault on X (formerly Twitter).
These developments come amidst recent assertions by Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni, who pledged that the country’s security forces were intensively pursuing the complete eradication of the ADF rebels, both within Uganda and abroad.
Further updates on the situation will be provided shortly.
