Crocodiles have not killed anyone! – Kitagwenda LC5 Chairperson
The Mahyoro sub county LC3 chairperson in Kitagwenda district Kaheru Juma has reaffirmed the Kitagwenda county MP Hon. Abas Agaba’s cries to parliament about residents being attacked and killed by crocodiles in the district.
While on the floor of parliament yesterday, MP Agaba Abas asked government to rescue residents whom he said are losing lives to crocodiles which kill them as they go to fetch water on the lake.
He said a number of people in Kihogo, Kanyabicere parish have been taken away by crocodiles while trying to fetch water on lake George, among them children and relatives only burry their body parts.
However, Kitagwenda District chairperson LC5 Robert Mugabe has dismissed claims by Kitagwenda county MP Abas Agaba that crocodiles have killed over 8 residents in the area.
Robert Mugabe adds that the crocodiles have not yet attacked people going to fetch water from Lake George.
It is alleged that those attacked by the crocodiles were illegal fishermen doing the activity in prohibited areas and none of them has lost their lives.
