1 min read

The Ugandan government has reached an agreement to pay the Kenyan government for transporting its fuel through the Port of Mombasa. This decision follows a meeting between President William Ruto and Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, where discussions centered on resolving the ongoing fuel transportation dispute.

Uganda’s Energy and Mineral Development Minister, Ruth Nankabirwa, confirmed the agreement, stating, “All we want is to bring in our fuel through Kenya, and we pay them. That’s all we want and that’s what we are pursuing.” The announcement comes in the wake of Uganda’s intention to swiftly resolve the legal case filed against Kenya at the East Africa Court of Justice.

President Ruto expressed optimism about the breakthrough, emphasizing the importance of cooperation between Kenya and Uganda in ensuring competitive pricing and logistical efficiency in oil imports. This development marks a positive step towards resolving the impasse that arose when Uganda terminated its oil deal with Kenya in November 2023.

The resolution of this issue not only strengthens bilateral relations but also emphasizes the commitment of both nations to fostering mutually beneficial partnerships in the energy sector. Stay tuned for further updates on this evolving situation.
