The Minister of ICT and National Guidance who also doubles as the MP for Kibale County East in Kamwenge District Hon. Frank Tumwebaze has called for preservation and breed Ankole Long-horned cattle.
While posting on his social media platform, the Minsiter who himself is a lover, admirer and breeder of the above cattle said people who love the breed should join efforts to promote them saying they are a great signature brand for domestic and cultural tourism.
“To the lovers of these breeds let’s join efforts to promote them as great signature brands of our domestic and cultural tourism,” Frank said.
Ankole Long–Horned Cattle (also known as inyambo) have a dark brown coat and long white horns that curve outwards and then up, in the shape of a lyre. They are majestic, elegant animals, able to travel long distances in search of pasture and water.
