On a daily basis, several herdsmen flock to the district headquarters which seats on a 10-acre piece of land in Kasingo cell, Hoima West Division to graze animals. The area is now filled with cow dung and covered with a foul stench, yet the back side of the building is bushy.
According to Esiko, after stealing the cows, the suspects loaded the animals on a Fuso truck registration number UAS 445C destined for Kyankwanzi district. Esiko says Hoima police immediately notified their counterparts in Kyankwanzi who mounted a road block and intercepted the truck.
Albertine Region Police Spokesperson Julius Hakiza told Uganda Radio Network that Rwihakare invaded a Kraal belonging to one Mugisha, a resident of Kiryandongo and took off with 23 cows about two months. Police have been pursuing him since then.
