Diana Museveni Kamuntu, daughter of President Yoweri Museveni, together with her husband Geoffrey Kamuntu over the weekend tracked the famous Mountain Gorillas in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park in Rubanda district.
The First Daughter and her husband, who seemed excited and fully prepared, tracked the Nshongi Mountain Gorilla group, one of the gorilla families in the south western park.
A rear occurrence at the park, wardens, park guards and tourists who had come to track the gorillas were visibly happy to see the first daughter joining them on the famous hunt.
Once in a while the couple would stop and converse with the group, often wondering about the strength of the people of Kigezi who ascend the treacherous hills on a daily basis.
After tracking the Nshongi Group, Diana was handed a certificate of merit and requested to encourage more people especially the first family to visit the rare Mountain Gorillas.
Later, the Rushaga gorilla camp took to social media to express their gratitude to Mrs Diana Museveni
“Leading by example!! Promoting domestic tourism!! Daughter of first family Mrs Diana Kamuntu, husband Mr Geoffrey Kamuntu & friends trekked Gorillas in Bwindi Rushaga.”
Canon Eng. Ivan Mbabazi Batuma the Kigezi tourism cluster chairman asked more people to also come and track the mountain gorillas as well to embrace local tourism.
“Our people need to also embrace local tourism. People come from outside countries to see the animals while our local population is not embracing it,” he said.
