On Tuesday November 16, 2021 twin blasts went off at two different locations within the Kampala Central Business District in what has now been confirmed by authorities as an act of terrorism. The police has confirmed 3 fatalities so far and about 30 casualties.
The Association of Uganda Tour Operators condemns this cowardly act of terror and sends out our most hearty commiserations to the families of the bereaved while reassuring the causalities and the whole nation that it will be well.
Uganda is not only a naturally endowed beautiful country with a resilient and happy people, but it is a country well known for its ability to rise over such adversity, with our never-give-up Ubuntu spirit emboldened by the popular local dialect ' Kijja Kuggwa'
With assurance from our security forces, we the Association of Uganda Tour Operators can confirm that the situation in Kampala particularly and Uganda in general, is calm, peaceful and security is stable. All means of transport, flight schedules including at Entebbe international Airport are operating normally. We are also happy to report that all tourist attractions across Uganda's beautiful National parks and sites are operating normally.
We look forward to welcoming you all to Uganda, the Pearl of Africa.
