Outgoing Minister of Tourism, Wildlife and Antiquities, Maria Mutagamba says that the problem of encroachers on wildlife centers can be solved if the wildlife authority can involve the communities in the planning, management and advocacy for wildlife conservation. Handing over office to the incoming minister, professor Ephraim Kamuntu, Mutagamba  said that this is the only way people will own, respect and protect  the wildlife rather  than spending money on enforcement.

However incoming state minister for tourism Godfrey kiwanda suubi said that his biggest task in this office will be educating Ugandans about the potential of the tourism sector so that they may go outside to market it.

Uganda receives about 1.3 million tourists annually.
