President Yoweri Museveni says he will not tolerate banditry in the country.
The president made the remarks in his brief stop at Sempaya tourist site and toured Nyansimbi hot springs in Semuliki National Park.
Mr. Rukiza Moses, a ranger at the Park, conducted him on the tour of the hot springs.
Rukiza told the President that the waters at the hot springs offer one of the most prominent tourist attractions in Semuliki National Park and boil up to 97 degrees.
He also told him that the hot spring of Nyansimbi is historically known to be the ancestral origin of the Bamaga clan of the Bamba tribe of Bundibugyo district.
According to Rukiza, due to the importance that the clan attaches to the hot spring, the Bamaga clan members visit the hot spring annually in the month of November to seek blessings for their children, for wealth and many others supplications.
The President commended the Uganda Wildlife Authority (UWA) workers at Sempaya tourist site for their good work in the tourism sector in particular and to the country as a whole.
