State Minister for Tourism Godfrey Kiwanda has revealed that the route that was used by the National Resistance Army fighters during the five-year bush war is going to be developed into a tourist attraction.

The minister says plans are already rolling. Kiwanda says the country doesn’t need to wait for the President to organize walks but this something all people can participate in throughout the year.

The Trek he says is being taken over by the Tourism Ministry purposely because they believe they can use as a tourism product.

“The trek will have signposts and billboards that will explain the significance of the various places during the liberation struggle,” says Kiwanda

Adding that, “It will ensure tourists from both abroad can come to trek but not necessarily walking on foot but driving and riding with a sole aim of learning about Uganda’s history and the liberation struggle in particular.”

The government Of Uganda intends to build four museums in various parts of the country; Nakaseke, Kiboga, Kakumiro and Kabamba. These will feature different souvenirs from the liberation war
