    A 25-year-old fisherman at Musoli landing site located in Mutumba Sub County in the eastern district of Namayingo was rushed to hospital in critical condition after a crocodile chewed off his buttocks.

    The fisherman, George Musinde reportedly went to fish at around 7.30 pm on Sunday. He reportedly jumped into the lake to evade law enforcement officials on patrol.

    According to one of the locals, Juma Wabwire, it was then that the fisherman was grabbed by the crocodile chewing off all his entire buttocks. Musinde managed to escape after pushing a big stick into the jaws of the reptile.

    He said he later raised an alarm that attracted law enforcement officials who rescued him from being eaten up by the crocodile.

    The secretary for defence Musoli landing site beach management unit, Moses Wesonga said the fisherman was rushed to Tororo main hospital in a critical condition.

    He cautioned fishermen and locals against moving to the shores of Lake Victoria especially during late night hours.

    Wesonga said most crocodiles usually take advantage of the night to attack people who come to take a bath or to fish.
