Animals found loitering in town to be confiscated
Authorities at Nyakabirizi division in Bushenyi/Ishaka municipality have
today passed a resolution to confiscate animals which are found loitering in and around
During the council meeting held at division council hall presided over by speaker Mackay Twijukye, a section of councilors said that the town is full of animals which dirten the town and residents and the business community have for long complained about the animals but the town agents have kept deaf ears.
The Councilors resolved to hold an operation with police to get rid of the animals in the town because town agents and other technical staffs are conniving with the owners.
Twijukye revealed that they planted over 169 trees but only 4 survived due to the loitering animals.
Andrew Mugabe, the town clerk suggested that the money charged from the owners of each animal should be increased to UGX 20,000 from UGX 10,000 as earlier drafted under the municipal charging policy since the exercise will involve using security personnel like the police.
