Security officials in Masaka have agreed to work with neighbouring districts to stamp out cattle thefts, reports Eddie Ssejjoba. The District Police Commander (DPC), Mr Steven Kasiima said the thefts were rampant in Masaka, Rakai and Sembabule. "We have alerted security organs to be on the look out and they must ensure all cattle in transit are accompanied with animal permits," he said. He said some local leaders had been said to be collaborating with animal thieves to forge the permits. "We are liaising with veterinary officers to ensure that permits are issued in a proper manner," he said. The Masaka Resident District Commissioner, Mrs Rose Mutonyi, told The New Vision they had instructed all security organs in the districts to check all trucks crossing the Lukaya road toll. Mutonyi said thieves were now transporting the animals during daytime to avoid night patrols by the Police. Ends
