Senate Deputy Speaker Kithure Kindiki (pictured) has directed investigations into an incident in which three policemen and four fishermen were arrested by Ugandan security agents in Lake Victoria on Monday.

In a heated debate, senators urged Prof Kindiki to exercise his discretion to ensure the country's territorial boundaries were respected and protected.

In a personal statement, Leader of Minority James Orengo had faulted the national government for failing to protect citizens living around the lake from constant harassment and aggression by the Ugandan military.

Senate's Committee on National Security, Defence and Foreign Affairs was tasked with the probe.
