Crying Dairy Farmers Force Kenya To Start Trade War With Uganda..

At least 19 trucks carrying powdered and UHT milk have been returned to Uganda or diverted by Kenyan authorities, according to an internal memo by the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA).
The milk truck loads worth more than Sh27 million (Ush1.1 billion), URA details show, were directed to return on varying dates or let in and the goods later seized by Kenya.


This, together with the sealing off of the Pearl Dairies depot in Kisumu, western Kenya, is expected to spark a trade war with far-reaching implications. Uganda has already demanded that Kenya stops hostilities on its exports or face reciprocal measures.
According to the memo seen by Daily Monitor, Uganda is already targeting a number of goods, key among them juices, assorted household items and roofing materials.
URA sources that requested anonymity said that although Ugandan goods, specifically milk, are cleared by the Kenya Revenue Authority, Kenya Bureau of Standards and Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate Service, they are later seized by Kenya’s inland police once in the country.

Not crying dairy farmers. nobody cares about dairy farmers in kenya. Lato was eating into Brookside’s market share. Nothing else
