Press Statement:Protesting Illegal Seizure of Ugandan Milk Products in Kenya

The Government of Uganda this Wednesday afternoon issued a Protest Note to the Government of Kenya expressing deep concern about illegal seizures of Ugandan made milk and milk products under Lato brand, causing heavy financial losses to the company. 

The seizures executed on three separate occasions during the month of January 2020 contravene the EAC Customs Union Protocol.

The Government of Uganda has requested the Government of Kenya to:

Immediately release the seized consignments of Lato branded milk;

Refrain operations targeting Ugandan made milk;

Refrain any actions against Uganda's exports to Kenya;

Take responsibility for any spoilage of products seized and losses suffered; and

Address any trade concerns within the EAC and bilateral frameworks instead of resorting to arbitrary means that could jeopardize trade relations between the two countries.
