The ministry of agriculture animal industry and fisheries has underscored the need to engage Kenya government on the possibility of joint operations for solving the problem of desert locusts.
This follows reports that some of those areas in Kenya previously invaded have newly hatched hoppers.
Addressing journalists at the ministry headquarters, the permanent secretary Pius Wakabi said the joint operation is needed to spray to ensure that the newly hatched hoppers do not reach maturity and swarm into Uganda.
He also clarified that Uganda has not registered any hatching of the locusts.
The country has 9 swams reported since the invasion and they have affected 24 districts.
