“From the time the caterpillars raided their village, all children refused to go to school and most of them missed exams but efforts to solicit for help from district leaders proved futile as they turned us down,” revealed Emmanuel Osokodo, a resident from Kaucho village.
He further revealed that the pests have resistance to chemicals adding that efforts to spray them using chemicals have not yielded any result prompting them to cut down all trees in a bid to get rid of the caterpillars.
“We have abandoned our homes because of the scary caterpillars. In fact we can no longer cover ourselves at night for fear of sharing bed sheets with them,” cried out Elizabeth Nyambusa who called upon government to come to their rescue.
Meanwhile, the minster for Agriculture, Animal Husbandry and Fisheries, Bright Rwamirama, has assured residents that government has already moved in to help deal with the issue.
