We shall retaliate, govt warns EAC states blocking Uganda’s exports

Kampala- Government has warned East African member states, saying it will retaliate with similar measures against countries slapping taxes on Ugandan exports.

The warning comes amid a deadlock on some of Uganda’s exports to East Africa Community member states key among them sugar and milk.
Tanzania, according to information obtained by Daily Monitor, has to date denied entry for Uganda’s sugar while Kenya’s Trade Ministry has already proposed a 16 per cent duty on Uganda’s milk exports.

Kenya is currently having run-ins with particularly Lato Milk on claims that Ugandan companies are dumping cheap milk on its market.
