Residents of Aukot parish in Gweri Sub-county in Soroti district are in fear following an invasion of hippos that have killed people, animals and destroyed crops.

The hippos based in the highland that separates Soroti and Ngora districts have in the recent weeks killed over 30 animals including cows and goats. Last week, the hippos killed two cows in Ariet village in Aukot parish, according to Stephen Osoil the LC3 councilor for Aukot parish in Gweri council.

Osoil said three people were attacked and killed by the hippos while fishing in Awoja swamp. “I have written to Wild Life Authority about this problem but I have not received feedback,” Osoil told New Vision.  He appealed to the Wild Life Authority to come to their rescue.
