The Spokesperson of Uganda Peoples Defence Forces, Captain Deo Akiki has said cattle theft is on increase in Karamoja sub region.
He says the Karamajong worriers have turned cattle theft into a commercial venture.
The stolen animals are loaded on lorries and transported to Kampala.
Akiki however says the army has arrested several Karimmojongo warriors in connection to cattle theft.
He urges the Karimojongo warriors to shun cattle thefts in order to avoid being arrested and prosecuted in courts of law.
