Hundreds Lose Jobs as Jinja Fish Factories Closes


Most Fish Factories in Jinja have closed down and hundreds of employees lost jobs due to fish stock outs. As fishermen and fish traders ponder their next step, Jinja Municipal Council authorities are decrying the loss of revenue. Masese Fish Parkers Ltd, Marine and Agro Export Processors Ltd, Gomba fish Processing Factory and Kamic foods have all closed down. According to authorities at Jinja Municipal Council there has been tremendous scarcity of fish which is a raw material for these factories hence pushing them out of business.
