Huge Python Killed At President Museveni’s Farm On The Eve Of His Birthday

A python was on Wednesday shot dead by policemen guarding Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni’s farm in Kisozi, Gomba District just hours before he celebrated his 72nd birthday.




The snake had reportedly sneaked into the farm with the intention of attacking the president’s cattle.
According to one of the policemen who preferred not to be named in the story because he’s not authorised to speak to the media, the python was shot thrice at around 10.00am after it turned violent.

“We were terrified by such a huge and dangerous creature and that’s why we had to kill it to secure our lives and protect the ‘big man’s’ cattle. One bullet was shot in in head and other two bullets in the abdomen,” he said.

He added that the snake weighed about 80 kilogrammes and 20 feet in length but by press time, it was still kept in one of the policemen’s shelter in the President’s farm.

The incident comes just days after police in Gomba District arrested three people on allegations of stealing Mr Museveni’s cows from the same farm.
The in-charge of investigations and intelligence at Gomba Police Station, Ms Doreen Kachwo, told the media that the three suspects, one of whom works at the farm were caught with three cows from the farm.

The president’s huge Kisozi farm is located in Gomba district, central Uganda, about 100 kilometres west of Kampala, and boasts long-horned cows traditionally herded by the president’s ethnic Banyankore tribe.


He likes to take visiting heads of state and foreign dignitaries there for talks and excursions.
Mr Museveni, who has ruled Uganda for three decades, was born into a family of cattle farmers and has often said he would happily return to the farm should he lose his political office.

He was re-elected for a fifth term in office in February.
His rival Kizza Besigye rejected the result, accusing the president’s people of massive fraud. 

About pythons:
They kill their prey by constriction, wrapping their muscular bodies around it until it suffocates before swallowing it whole and dozing off for a couple of months while the meal is digested.

      You just hit the nail and the head. That's the Old African man mentality. Animal is for kill and chop. No sense of conservation and preservation so that such species can be kept for scientific observation and learning that will still yield revenue. Such a big snake should have been rescued rather than just kill it and go. Pythons are not aggressive except when intimidated. Well, let them enjoy. The meat sweet sha. LOL!

    2. I dey stupid. So u don't know python s can eat a human? U think these are the ones in your village?

    3. Actually it can. Someone smallish in nature like a child or a defenceless man, say a drunk man. But i agree with you about conserving. We've killed off everything. If God didn't want them to share the world with us he won't have created them. #ConserveNature

  24. the person talking about conservation and africans is not serious. its ok to conserve any other animal but not snakes abeg. go to nairaland and see the number of huge pythons killed just this week. todays own swallowed two goats. a male and a pregnant female both owned by a woman in delta state.

    pythons are very dangerous if u dont know. a python dat can swallow two goats at a stretch is capable of swallowing a human being. thank God it was not even the womans baby or small child the python swallowed. God will help us. if u like when u see python around u, dont kill it. stay there and be preaching "conservation".

  27. Na Wa for una o!
    No species of snakes can swallow a grown human being at least more than the age of 12 years not even the reticulated python which is the largest species of python nor the South America anacondas. This is impossible because of the shoulder width of of a grown human. Moreover, pythons are not naturally aggressive except when threatened. Go to Some parts of Anambra and see how humans live side by side with huge serpent measuring close to 15ft and even more.
    GOD BLESS NIGERIA.
