Lwakataka in trouble again over immature fish

Ponsiano Lwakataka

Former rally driver Ponsiano Lwakataka is involved in a dispute with the UPDF over a consignment of immature fish impounded by the UPDF marine unit from the DRC border. The consignment allegedly belongs to Lwakataka but the UPDF says he fled during the operation. The fish estimated to be worth Shs60m was collected from landing sites in Masaka, Kalangala and Rakai districts. The head of the marine unit Maj James Nuwagaba said the consignment was intercepted within a space of three days. He told the media that they were tracking Lwakataka from Bukakata, Buwunga and Kalisizo in Rakai until the operation impounded the fish in Kasese. Lwakataka in defence asked President Museveni to intervene on behalf of fishermen saying the UPDF operations risks rendering thousands of fishermen in the country jobless.
