Addressing grasshopper trappers at Kyabahangwe village in Kikaada LCI, Ssebastian Bamugonze Byaruhanga the Bwamiramira Sub County Chief asked them to pay lincense, prohibit children from accessing trapping places and compiling the list of all grasshopper trappers for security reasons among others.

Grasshopper trappers have however complained of high taxes levied from them saying that the charges between Shs35, 000 and 50,000 required from them as lincense is much money given the risks associated with their business.
