Uganda yesterday accused Kenya of not being keen to follow the East African Community Common Market protocol.
Uganda High Commissioner Angeline Wapakhabulo said that while Uganda has no problem trading with Kenya, Kenyans have no trust in Uganda as a business partner.
She spoke in Mombasa during the launch of a Ugandan modular ferry, the Albert Nile-1.
She said Kenyans should not debate the sugar deal after the two countries reached agreement this October.
The envoy said Uganda produces more sugar than Kenya and it is important for the two countries to develop harmonious trade relations.
“Uganda produces 120,000 metric tonnes of sugar above domestic consumption. Where do you expect us to export the surplus?” she said.
