While speaking at a conference in London cheerleader by Theresa May UK prime minister, Museveni told several leaders that governments should work together to fight this disease citing it’s consequences to be more worse.

“I urge leaders and partners assembled here to add on the strength of our cooperation, most importantly in giving out intelligence and to strengthen laws against the illegal wildlife traders, reduce the demand for illegal wildlife goods and supporting the legal ways for reliable development.” The president said.

“Trading and trafficking of wildlife products illegally puts our economies and security at stake since money acquired from such products has been used in funding terrorists from time to time and we need to get together for these thugs to be defeated,” Museveni added

Museveni assured fellow leaders that his country is committed to fight this illegal disease locally and internationally and they have introduced a number of policies to end illegal wildlife trade and trafficking.

Museveni cited the establishment of sniffer dogs, wildlife courts specifically for wildlife crimes and seizing assets of the traffickers among others

However Museveni was conscious of the poverty people neighboring wildlife areas face. Stating this will automatically put them at odds with wildlife. “We need to invest in industrialization and tourism for our people to do away the problem of unemployment.”
