President Museveni speaks out Kenya-Uganda Sugar Deal
President Yoweri Museveni has hit back at the Kenyan Opposition for attempting to block Ugandan Sugar from entering Kenya. This comes after Raila Odinga’s opposition political party released its programme of rallying Kenyans to reject a partnership allowing Uganda to export a sizeable amount of sugar to Kenya
Odinga claimed that allowing the dumping of sugar in Kenya would devastate the economies of a quarter of the counties of Kenya and a big section of the rural agricultural population.
President Museveni questioned whether Odinga’s job was to direct Ugandan goods away from Kenya yet Uganda has been supporting the prosperity of Kenya for many years.
Museveni said that the East African community needs an open market so as to support companies and families,however, he was surprised to see that Odinga, who he referred to as a brother attacked the Uganda-Kenya trade deal.
