No Kenyan products in Ugandan market~Museveni declares

0

Uganda has decided to take action placing an embargo on some of the goods from Kenya to their markets.

A decision arrived at on Tuesday, December 14, President Yoweri Museveni’s administration placed a ban on some of the agricultural products coming from Kenya as the trade war escalates.

Confirming the decision, Rebecca Kadaga, who concurrently serves as Uganda’s minister for East African Affairs, stated that the cabinet is in the process of identifying and making the list of all products that will not be allowed in Uganda.

The decision has been interpreted as reciprocal to Kenya which for the longest time has been at loggerheads with Uganda over some goods.

The current hostilities between the two East African Community partners started brewing in December 2019, when Kenya stopped importing Ugandan milk products. The milk brand had gained market popularity in the country with traders decrying huge losses due to the directive.

But President Uhuru Kenyatta’s administration did not stop at that. In July 2020, Ugandan sugar was outlawed from Kenya’s market going against an agreement that had earlier been struck by the two nations,

This ban could have a huge impact as the two countries mutually depend on each other for bilateral business. The restrictions go against a Customs Union Protocol established by the East African Community (EAC) single market.

Most of the fuel consumed in Uganda is trucked through Kenya via the Port of Mombasa which is the main distributor according to John Friday, the assistant commissioner for petroleum supplies.
