Uganda Wildlife Authority ranger has been killed in attack by poachers..

The ranger died on Wednesday after engaging armed poachers in a fierce gun battle. The poachers, moments later, started shooting at the buffaloes which attracted the attention of the rangers.
“Before the commander gave his team members for the assault under concealment, the poachers opened fire at our staff and the bullet hit Mwesigye in the upper chest killing him instantly so the rangers also responded with heavy fire forcing the poachers to flee.
