Kenya and Uganda Reach Fuel Deal After Months of Trade Dispute

1 min read

President William Ruto has announced that a deal has been struck with Uganda to address the long-standing trade dispute over fuel distribution and pricing. Following a meeting with Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni, President Ruto revealed, “We have agreed on a way forward of sourcing and scheduling imports for the region in a manner that will ensure we achieve the most competitive pricing and maximum logistical efficiency.”

The agreement comes after months of tension between the two neighboring countries, with Uganda accusing Kenyan companies of selling fuel at exorbitant prices, allegedly putting profits ahead of fair pricing for Ugandan citizens. President Ruto also emphasized the need for urgent action on the construction of a pipeline connecting Eldoret, Kampala, and Kigali, stating, “The two countries need to urgently pursue the design and construction of the earlier conceptualized Eldoret-Kampala-Kigali refined petroleum product pipeline.”

The agreement marks a significant step towards resolving the trade stalemate, which saw Uganda taking legal action against Kenya at a regional court and also aims to ensure fair distribution of fuel products and enhance trade relations between the two nations.
