Museveni's men are making us eat raw fish - President Uhuru Kenyatta receives urgent appeal from Busia fishermen

President Uhuru Kenyatta has received an urgent appeal from Busia fishermen who have requested him to meet with his Ugandan counterpart Yoweri Museveni.

The fishermen claim that Ugandan marines have been arresting them and forcing them to eat raw fish to save their lives or risk getting shot dead.

"It is inhumane for Ugandan officers to subject us to eat raw fish at gunpoint. They also take away and destroy our boats and nets yet we have spent a lot of money to purchase the gear," one fisherman stated.

Appeal to the President

Busia County Beach Management Unit chair Sylvester Kaywa added: "We appeal to President Kenyatta to dialogue with Mr Museveni for a lasting solution to this matter already rendering residents jobless."

The fishermen stated that they are arrested by the Ugandan police on grounds that they are using illegal equipment and fishing in Ugandan waters.

They have also stated that they do not have modern equipment asking the government to invest in their industry.

Continuous clashes between the Kenyan and Ugandan fishermen have been precipitated by lack of regulations that govern the fishing activities along the border.
