Kasese Community Criticizes Law Enforcement Over Roaming Animals
Roaming animals

Members of the Kasese Municipality community are expressing dissatisfaction with law enforcement officers’ handling of regulations against roaming domestic animals in Kasese town.

The municipal council recently hired a contractor to manage and fine owners of roaming animals, charging between 20,000 and 40,000 shillings per animal. This initiative aims to foster a clean, green, and disease-free town.

At a dialogue meeting between livestock owners and municipal leaders, individuals such as Mr. Tadeo Baguma, Ms. Faith Mbambu, and Mr. Amos Rujumba accused law enforcement officers of discriminatory practices and unjustly rounding up animals to benefit financially from the contractor.

In response, Mr. Zedekia Kayiri Kambasu, the Kasese Municipal Deputy Town Clerk, acknowledged the need to address operational errors but emphasized the municipality’s commitment to enforcing laws against roaming animals, prioritizing town aesthetics, and community safety.

Deputy Mayor Rabson Mupango urged farmers to diversify their activities instead of maintaining large numbers of domestic animals, particularly during harsh weather conditions in Kasese.
