The security of fishermen in Lake Victoria will be improved in order to ensure that residents living around it conduct their activities peacefully. The promise was made in Mwanza yesterday by President Jakaya Kikwete when addressing a campaign rally at CCM Kirumba stadium.

Speaking in his second day of election campaigns, Mr Kikwete said security within and around the lake was of paramount importance as many people in the zone depended on lake Victoria for their survival.
