The Ministry of Agriculture has since passed out information warning the entire populace to stock enough food. However, the warning might have come in late as many people are likely to have already sold off a number of crops harvested in the recent farming season. Uganda last experienced a major locust invasion in 1961, with immense damage on crops which resulted in acute hunger.
Johnson Mubiru, a pastoralist in Kakabala village says that he has seen few flies in the swamp but didnt think they can cause harm. He has also welcomed the campaign to equip them with knowledge to protect their animals.
He said government will plan for the youths whose parents failed to plan for to help them overcome the unemployment problem. Some parents didnt plan well for their children. They have no job, no property and no capital.
