11 tons of immature fish impounded on trucks

Police in Pader district have arrested five people suspected to be promoting the act of homosexuality in the district.
The suspects were arrested in the period of one week after the tip off by the locals, who accused the suspects of moving within the schools in the district, promoting the practice which was early this year criminalized by the Anti-homosexual Act 2014.
It’s alleged that the suspects have been carrying out clandestine movements in both primary and secondary schools in the district luring the pupils and students into the practice.
The OC Pader Central Police Station, Mr Romeo Ojara Onek, confirmed the arrest, adding that police is still investigating the matter.
He said among the arrested suspects include two businessmen, one teacher, and two students who are allegedly recruiting and promoting the act.
“The suspects’ medical report is out and their files have been forwarded to the Resident State Attorney for aice, pending prosecution,” Mr Onek said.
Last year one of the teachers in the district reported a similar case to Pader district authorities.
This comes barely a month after the United States announced it had cut aid to Uganda and cancelled a military exercise in response to the Anti-homosexuality law that allegedly imposes harsh penalties on homosexuality.
The new law, signed by President Yoweri Museveni in February this year, imposes jail terms of up to life for and#034aggravated homosexualityand#034 which includes homosexual sex with a minor or while HIV-positive.
