Kasese Farmers Count Losses as Elephants Destroy Crops
Farmers in Mubuku Irrigation Scheme, Kasese district are counting losses after wild animals strayed into their gardens.
The wild animals especially Elephants from Queen Elizabeth National Park have destroyed several acres of gardens for the past three days.
Kasese district vice chairperson Gideon Ntabosi says the animals are discouraging people against farming yet it is the district’s major source of income.
He wants the Uganda Wildlife Authority to increase manpower to ensure the animals do not stray into people’s gardens.
