Raila Odinga terms as “dangerous and reckless” Presidents Kenyatta – Museveni deals
Kenyan’s Cord leader Raila Odinga has termed as “dangerous and reckless” some of the trade deals signed by Presidents Uhuru Kenyatta and Yoweri Museveni (Uganda).
He said allowing cheaper Ugandan sugar into the Kenyan market will kill the country’s sugar industry. Raila also claimed some of the Kenyatta-Museveni deals such as exporting beef and dairy products to Uganda could have been influenced by private business interests.
In his three-day visit to Uganda, Kenyatta and Museveni struck a deal to allow cheaper Ugandan sugar into the Kenyan market and Kenyan beef and dairy products to the Uganda market.
Raila termed the sugar deal “sour”, coming at a time when the taxpayer is struggling to revive Mumias Sugar Company.
