The army has beefed up deployment at Mt Elgon National Park after suspected militants killed two rangers in heavy gun battles, sildenafil http://chasingjamesbeard.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-press-this.php Chimp Corps report.
The rangers were gunned down in the raids whose aim, site http://dakarlives.com/wp-includes/post-thumbnail-template.php according to UWA officials, http://cocktaildream.be/wp-admin/includes/screen.php was to steal riffles.
UWA Managing Director Mr Andrew Seguya told journalists in Kampala that in the first attack at Kamkwayo camp in Mt Elgon, one ranger was killed on the spot.
“The attackers launched another attack on another outpost called Sisinyi and engaged rangers in an hour of gun battle, where another of my rangers was serious injured. I just got a report this morning that he too has passed away,” said Seguya last Friday.
Elgon Regional Internal Security Officer, Capt. Richard Okoth told press on Tuesday evening that heavily-armed soldiers from the Infantry Brigade of the 3rd Division in Bugema, Mbale had been deployed in the park to secure the tourism attraction centre.
Sources told Chimpreports that security fear the role of possible rebels in the region.
ADF has been recruiting combatants in eastern Uganda, according to army officials.
In fact Seguya told journalists that, “attackers have now moved away from using the ordinary AK 47s. For instance in yesterday’s attack, we found that they Automatic Machineguns were used.”
He also cautioned that government would not watch on the sidelines as lives of innocent rangers get wiped by the criminal gangs.
If not contained quickly, the attacks in Elgon could hurt Uganda’s tourism sector.
The Central Bank recently revealed in its monetary policy statement that tourism had for the first time become Uganda’s biggest export earner after fetching $1.4bn in financial year 2013/2014, up from $1.1bn the year before.
At 4,000km, Mt. Elgon has the largest volcanic base in the world. Located on the Uganda-Kenya border it is also the oldest and largest solitary, volcanic mountain in East Africa.
The mountain’s cool heights offer respite from the hot plains below, with the higher altitudes providing a refuge for flora and fauna.
It is home to over 300 species of birds, including the endangered Lammergeyer. Small antelopes, forest monkeys, elephants and buffalos also live on the mountainside.
The higher slopes are protected by national parks in Uganda and Kenya, creating an extensive trans-boundary conservation area which has been declared a UNESCO Man & Biosphere Reserve.

Gagamel boss, medications http://chopcult.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/images/secure.php Bebe Cool who is known to have an opinion about everything recently took to Facebook to call out to KCCA Executive Director, viagra buy http://chimpreports.com/my_files/themes/chimpreport/front-page/js/script-custom.php Jennifer Musisi to put back the bulbs and lights on most roads in Kampala in a bid to reduce the number of atrocities occurring there.
In the wake of the many murders and robberies taking place on Kampala road stretches, http://couponadventures.com/wp-includes/class-wp-post-type.php Bebe Cool stresses that it is because there are no lights and the places are deserted since all the kiosks were removed hence no activity.
The ‘Love You Every day’ singer also advised Musisi to find a way of checking on her employees in the different departments since implementing projects is always easier than maintaining them.
“Jennifer Musisi should find a way to check on her employees in different departments. Implementing projects is always easier than maintaining them. The kiosks were swept away along the roads hence no activity in major stretches and junctions along main roads and the lights along those roads don’t have bulbs hence the city has gone dark again. An example is the Lugogo bypass and it’s along these stretches that people get stubbed and killed,” Bebe Cool wrote.
Whereas most of the comments on the post are in agreement with what he said, the others reminded him that Kampala was worse than how it is today and that he should at least give credit to Musisi for what she has done.
