Dr. Richard Lubega says the government has not done enough in their community organization by providing the enterprises of people’s interests and lack of breeds of fish and livestock species.

But the Deputy CAO Kibaale, Betty Nankindu says farmers should show their enterprise selection demand through the agriculture extension workers because the district is willing to help such committed farmers.

In the same vein, the district production department led the CAO visited the over 3900 fish stocked pond in Kajuma where Dr. Richard called on the district fisheries department provide enough breeds to enable other fish farmers easy access.
