No more harassment of Kenyans on Migingo! MUSEVENI orders his soldiers to retreat as he vows never to arrest Kenyans again


Wednesday October 24, 2018-Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has resolved to stop harassment and arbitrary arrests of Kenyans living on the disputed Migingo Island and those fishing in Lake Victoria.

Speaking when he led a security team at a meeting with their Kenyan counterparts in Homa Bay town, Museveni’s Special Advisor, Mayanja Mohammed, noted that Ugandan Government will not intimidate or harass Kenyans again.

“The Ugandan Government, in the spirit of East African unity, does not wish to antagonise Kenyans who are looking for their livelihood in the lake,” said Mr. Mohammed.

“We assure Kenyans that there will be no more harassment of fishermen on Lake Victoria.”

“We do not condone habits of extortion and harassment by any of our security officials,” he added.

However, Museveni’s advisor cautioned Kenyan fishermen to respect maritime laws governing operations on the lake, adding that territorial trespass often led to conflict with Ugandan authorities.

The leaders resolved to end the territorial conflicts over the lake shared by Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania.

“I have been receiving many reports that the Ugandan security officials intimidate our fishermen by going as far as forcing them to eat raw fish.”

“This is very bad and I am content with Mr Mohammed’s promise,” said Suba MP Millie Odhiambo.
