Fresh row over Migingo as Kenyan fishermen banned

02 April 2012, 10:43

A new dispute has emerged in Migingo Island with Uganda security officers banning Kenyan fishermen from fishing in Uganda waters until the recently posted Kenyan assistant chief is withdrawn.

The decision was arrived at on Saturday morning by Ugandan officers, who termed Kenya’s action of posting an assistant chief to the island as "jumping the gun" as issues of ownership of the island had not been resolved.

Migingo Beach Management Unit Chairman Juma Ombori said Kenyans on the island were rounded up then informed that they would not be allowed to go fishing in Uganda waters until the chief was removed.
