As the Joint Security Agencies, we continue to mourn the senseless murder of the two foreign tourists, who were on their honey moon and their lives cut short, as they were celebrating an important accomplishment of their marriage, and their Ugandan guide/driver. The bodies of the two foreign tourists are still being kept in the mortuary at Mulago National Referral Hospital, awaiting the arrival of Forensic experts from the UK and South Africa, who will in coordination with our investigative and scientific experts review the circumstances of the violent attack and murder, the evaluation of the evidence, and forensic analysis of the collected samples.

An official report of death of the victims, will be handed over after wards. The body of the Ugandan guide/driver, Eric Alyai, was handed over to the relatives, after a post –mortem examination.

As the Joint Security Agencies, we remain extremely saddened, that this very tragic incident happened in our country that attracts thousands of tourists, both foreign and domestic. It is highly regrettable. We do extend our condolences to the families and loved ones of, the British citizen, the South African and Alyai Eric. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of them. We further extend heartfelt condolences to the British High Commission and the South African Commission in Uganda, for the loss of its citizens.

Like indicated by H.E. The President, the UPDF Mountain Brigade and UWA, continue to aggressively pursue the terrorists who fled, in the area left of Bweera-Kikoroongo road. We are sure that all those responsible for the horrific and violent attack, will be held accountable for their criminal actions.

We would like to reassure all Ugandans and visitors that the safety of tourists, continues to be a priority. We have as a result adjusted and stepped up, our patrols along the major roads and highways in Kasese district, with the deployment of an integrated highway patrol unit, together with other road policing measures in the neighbouring areas. We have also adjusted deployments at all tourists sites. These and other security measures are aimed at guaranteeing, peace, safety and security in the country.
