The joint task team, consisting of local and international investigators, shared crucial findings with the UK team, including event timelines, GPS data, phone evidence, and other pertinent leads. Additionally, a comprehensive autopsy report was provided to the UK experts.
The police fraternity also assured the Ugandan public and all visitors in the country that significant enhancements have been implemented to ensure safety and security measures at various tourist sites nationwide since this tragic incident occurred.

For those individuals who choose not to surrender, appropriate action will be taken to neutralize the threat.
