Details Why Top Fish Farmers Want To Meet M7 Leak
Secrets why a section of top fish farmers across Lango Sub region have been pushing for a meeting with President Yoweri Museveni have emerged.
Last week we reported how Eddy Morris Ogweng, a prominent top fish farmer with a network of over 15,000 local farmers, had failed to meet Museveni despite his various attempts.
Ogweng, 32 is currently the biggest fish farmer in Northern Uganda rearing over 600,000 fish at Leye Dam in Kole district valued at over Shs2Bn.
Currently the fish at this dam is at risk after it was invaded by a strange weed that has since covered its surface, killing the fish due to suffocation and poor water quality.
It has since emerged that Ogweng and other fish farmers want to meet Museveni to beg him bail out commercial fish famers in the region.
Top among other issues which the group wants to present to President Museveni is crafting immediate solutions to the current strange weed problem which invaded Leye Dam.
According to a source, Ogweng’s move to set up a mega agricultural Centre of excellence which would support and train farmers has also failed after his failure to meet Museveni.
President Museveni on July 22nd, 2015 visited Leye Dam in Kole district where Ogweng is currently breeding fish and pledged to support fish farming in northern Uganda.
