Kanye and Kim visit Uganda

Chattanooga Times Free Press - - BREAKING NEWS: 423-757-NEWS -

KAM­PALA, Uganda — Ugan­dan of­fi­cials said Kanye West and his wife, the re­al­ity TV star Kim Kar­dashian West, have ar­rived in Uganda on a pri­vate visit.

In­for­ma­tion Min­is­ter Frank Tumwe­baze told The As­so­ci­ated Press late Satur­day that West’s visit is “an en­dorse­ment of our tourism re­sources.” Gov­ern­ment spokesman Of­wono Opondo said on Twit­ter that the Amer­i­can rap­per was trav­el­ing with his wife.

They are re­port­edly va­ca­tion­ing in a lux­ury sa­fari lodge with a view of the River Nile in the north­ern part of the East African na­tion.

Their pres­ence in Uganda is seen as a coup for of­fi­cial tourism pro­mot­ers, who re­cently were crit­i­cized by the pres­i­dent for al­legedly not do­ing enough to pro­mote Uganda’s nat­u­ral at­trac­tions.
