Uganda emphasizes on local tourism

Published on : Wednesday, March 22, 2017

UgandaThe inhabitants of Nakoosi have been requested to enhance tourism of Mukono district by exploring the country and its attractions prior luring overseas visitors. Godfrey Kiwanda, State Minister for Tourism and Antiquities believes that to attract others to their own country, the residents need to have complete knowledge in telling story to draw visitors and their tourism products.

 
To quote Kiwanda, ‘’ unless we discover ourselves, we will never tell the story of Uganda to others.’’ He also said that Ugandans should compose and start singing songs in order to promote the tourism of Uganda. Kiwanda said that tourism in this country is not only about viewing the wildlife but also to explore the local people, their culture and products in order to get the real picture of Africa while delivering his speech at the official launch of Tulambule Mukono at Chakig Eco-tourism Centre at Nakoosi, Nakisunga Sub County.

 

He said, ‘’ we are putting emphasis on Mukono district because there is a lot of tourism potential in the area.’’ Among the tourism sites launched include Mugwanya Mausoleum Bukerere, Ham Mukasa Museum, Ssezibwa River falls, Ham Mukasa’s car which was among the first in Uganda and Ridar Hotel bandas. Lately, Uganda has been ranked 4th best among tourism centers in the world and finest in whole Africa.
