URA gives Ugandan traders assurance ahead of Kenyan elections

By Samuel Ssebuliba

As Kenya prepare to hold general elections on August 8th, Ugandan traders have been assured of steady flow of business across the border.

Currently almost 80% of good destined to Uganda pass through Kenya, making Uganda more dependent to Kenya’s wellbeing.

With the growing uncertainty surrounding the process, fears have been raised over its outcome by many traders.

However, Vincent Seruma the Public Relations Officer of the Uganda Revenue Authority has allayed those fears saying all their offices will remain open to facilitate smooth and normal flow of business across the border.
