An early morning fishing routine for a group of fishermen on Saturday led to the discovery of five bombs in Lake Victoria.
According to the Fishermen, they thought they had made a huge catch when their net suddenly became heavy but to the surprise, they dicovered a heavy metallic box.
They raised an alarm through their beach management unit chair Isaiah Pero who handled the explosives to officers at Mbita Police station.
It is suspected that the explosives were dumped in Lake Victoria after World war 11 . They are believed to have been used by colonial authorities.
