Minister denies allegations of poisonous sugar

By Samuel Ssebuliba.

Trade minister Amelia Kyambadde has dismissed allegations that sugar that was rejected in Kenya and Tanzania was brought to Uganda.

This year Kenya banned sugar that was found to be containing mercury.

Yesterday the Member of Parliament for Manjiya John Baptist Nambeshe tasked the minister to allay the fears of Ugandans on the media reports that this sugar was sneaked into Uganda.

However minister Kyambadde said that all the sugar in question was destroyed from Kenya and Ugandans are safe.
