Uganda Considers New Laws to Stem Cattle Rustling (News Central TV)

Ugandan authorities in Nakasongola District have announced a set of new rules to check rampant animal theft.

Cattle breeders and dealers will be required to obtain a written clearance from the veterinary officials and parish chiefs for all animals in transit within the district, under the rules.

The clearance will indicate the area of origin and the telephone contacts of both the original owner and the parish chief of the area.

The rules endorsed by both the district council and the security committee also dictate that animals outside the gazetted cattle loading sites be confiscated by the district security team guided by the district veterinary office.

“The new guidelines and regulations are already yielding fruits… Any truck that loads animals outside the gazetted cattle loading site will be confiscated by the police,” he explained during an interview on  Friday.
