Gov’t: Foreigners Illegally Profiteering From Uganda Maize Exports

Uganda says foreigners illegally benefiting from maize exports

Foreigners are establishing illegal stores in Uganda  and exporting maize to others countries, State Minister  for East African Affairs, Julius Maganda has revealed.

 While updating Parliament on Uganda’s maize ban into Kenyan market, Maganda said Government has now  resolved to regulate all foreigners with grain stores within Uganda so as to kick illegal ones out.

He noted that  government has learnt that some foreign traders cross over to Uganda and establish stores deep in villages and process grain for export and still call it business from Uganda .

He added that out of the 150 maize  trucks impounded by Kenya at the border, there was no proof that this maize had aflatoxin.

The Minister said although  maize trade with Kenya resumed, it’s still at a slow speed because traders have to first go though all the UNBS testing process.
