Two men arrested with rotten meat in Kasese

The Police in Katwe Kabatooro Town Council, in Kasese district, have arrested two men who were found in possession of poisonous meat. 

The men are identified as Muhindo Landus and Kasasira Lawrence who were intercepted at Katunguru roadblock on their way to Kibara village in Mpondwe lhubiriha Town Council, driving a vehicle Registration number UBE/762E.    

Kabatooro Town Council DPC Tyson Rutambika says the duo was arrested with rotting carcasses of 10 cows with visible maggots and a foul smell. 

The two had also been arrested earlier for the same offence.

According to Rutambika, the suspects will be paraded before the courts to answer to counts of being in possession of unhealthy meat and suspected theft.   

Geoffrey Kalule the head of the Veterinary Department at the district says that the meat tested positive for anthrax which poses a threat to the lives of the consumers and it will be disposed of once they secure a court order.
