Over 272 motorcycles, 26 vehicles impounded in Kasese

Fisheries protection units in Rwenzori region appealed to owners of vehicles, motorcycles and other items that were impounded and seized during their route operations to pick them.

The seized items were impounded last year for carrying immature fish and dealing in unauthorized fishing habits on and off the lake.

Reinforcement personnel working under Fisheries protection unity in Kasese have in the recent past impounded vehicles and motorbikes transporting immature fish caught from different lakes to the different markets.

The impounded vehicles, which are parked at the UPDF Marines Battalion, include trucks, cars and motorbikes. But following a presidential order to release all impounded motorbikes with minor offenses, the UPDF marine brigade in Kasese is set to execute the directive.

After calling on the owners of the impounded vehicles and motorcycles, another vehicle registration number UBB 184R was today impounded after being caught transporting immature fish.

Salt TV speaking to the public relations officer, Fisheries protection unity Capt. Favorite Rugumayo noted that 272 motorcycles and 26 vehicles were impounded last year and so far 104 motorcycles have been released.

He appeals to the owners of the remaining motorcycles to pick them upon presenting certified ownership documents.

Captain Rugumayo says despite numerous operations on and off the lakes, fish traders have continuously transported immature fish through porous routes but cautioned them to seize from the habit.

Lt. Col. Dick Kaija, who heads the operations in rwenzori region, warned the Fisheries protection unit officers to stop beating people at lakes and in the field.
