UPESI NEWS CORRESPONDENT,NAIROBI,10TH FEB,2017-. Fishermen in lake victoria in Homa Bay county have found more than 800 live bullets while on a fishing expedition. The bullets were discovered at a shallow part of the lake near Litare Beach on Rusinga Island. The bullets were packed inside a metal box.
Litare Beach Management Unit (BMU) Wilson Nyajwaya,told upesinews.co.ke that the fishermen thought they had come across a precious metal in the Lake. Others felt they had got a big fish amid skepticism because their net was not meant for big fish.
“Omena is usually light but we were surprised because the net was extraordinarily heavy,” said Nyajwaya. Nyajwaya said they had a difficult moment pulling the net to the shore of the Lake. Mbita OCPD Wilson Nanga who led a team of police officers to the scene said the box contained more than 800 bullets.
