The Uganda wildlife authority (UWA) has constructed a 16 kilometer buffalo wall around Mgahinga National Park, intended to safeguard wildlife animals from raiding villages. The 20 million shillings wall is in response to the constant complaints by the people about the destruction caused by the roaming animals. Asa Kule, Bwindi and Mgahinga impenetrable National parks, warden says if complete the wall will act as a vital barrier to the animals on the 33sq Kms Park. Kule explains that the wall is high enough to block the animals from jumping over. But residents of Gisozi village are concerned about some animals which are capable of burrows to escape from the park. He says that with the absence of deep trenches around the park, the wall may not be of good use.
