An excited Lily Ajarova, CEO of the Uganda Tourism Board told eTurboNews late afternoon she had very good news. ” The rescue of the kidnapped American Tourist and her driver is completed. Both captives are back in safe hand.”, was her WhatsApp message.

This is not only very good news for the American visitor and her family, but also for the credibility of Ugandan authorities and the Uganda travel and tourism industry.

Ugandan elite forces freed an American touristKim Sue Endicott of Southern California and her tour guide, Congolese national Jean-Paul Mirenge Remezo, were freed in a negotiated handover, officials said.

Apparently, Ugandan authority negotiated the handover in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where both victims were found. Kidnappers had demanded $500,000 and the FBI was actively involved.

According to unconfirmed reports both victims are back in Uganda at Queen Elizabeth National Park
