Manafwa Resident District Commissioner, Ahamada Washaki has impounded three heifers that he had just handed to farmers in the district under Agriculture Extension Grant Financing destined for Mbale.  

Washaki intercepted the three heifers in Bumbobi Sub County on Tuesday afternoon aboard a pickup registration number UAM 208Y. According to Washaki, he presided over the handover of the animals to farmers in Manafwa in the morning and was surprised to find them being transported to Mbale district.  

Washaki says that he later received information that some of the district officials had connived to sneak the three heifers from the district.
