President Yoweri Museveni has ordered for the immediate removal of eucalyptus trees in all wetlands as a measure towards nature conservation.

The president has also asked people operating fish ponds in swamps to abandon the practice saying that such activities are disastrous and threaten human survival in the near future.

The president’s directive was issued during Easter Sunday prayers at St Mathew Cathedral -Kyamate Ntungamo district.

“Planting trees without stopping cutting of existing ones is futile,” he observed. “When you carry out activities that dry up wetlands, you interfere with the ecosystem and the rains.” The President warned against planting eucalyptus trees which dry up wetlands.

He says that wetlands should be conserved to enable availability of water that will be used to support irrigation and other modern farming activities.

If adopted, the directive will see to an immediate closure of commercial tree projects and fish ponds operating in swamps across the country.
