BUKWO: Farmers in Chebombai village in Amanang sub county in Bukwo district on Tuesday jubilated following the stocking of fish in their dams. The ministry of water and environment delivered the fish to two dams on Tuesday with the move to improve the household income of farmers in the area.
Mr.Patrick Okotel the regional engineer for eastern Uganda in the ministry of water and environment said this the second time the ministry was stocking fish in the dams but unfortunately some criminals went and stole the fish from the ponds.
“Last year we stocked fish in these dams but to our surprise people stole all the fish I hope this time around they will not do the same mistake”-he revealed
According to Mr.Okotel, the ministry is trying to boost fish farming in Bukwo given the fact that most people in Bukwo only practice crop farming.  He urged the leadership of Bukwo to own the project and cautioned them against politicizing the projects.
Moses Chepkuri  one of the resident’s hailed the ministry of water for stocking fish in the dam saying it was long over due.
“We want to thank the ministry for coming to our rescue because we also wants to enjoy fish like other farmers do in other parts of the country”-said Chepkuri
