Duale defends Kenya-Uganda sugar deal

12 August 2015, 10:27 Dennis Omido

Nairobi - Parliament Majority Leader, Aden Duale has rubbished opposition claims that the sugar deal signed between Kenya and Uganda was sour.

Duale said the government was committed to reviving the sugar industry in Kenya, and he sees nothing wrong with the signing of the deal between the two countries.

“It is not a crime to import sugar in Kenya. Let the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga know that so many tones of sugar were imported when he was in government,” Duale said during an interview on Tuesday night.

However, ODM Secretary General Ababu Namwamba differed with Duale’s sentiments saying unregulated importation of sugar would kill the already struggling sugar industry in Kenya.

“This deal will amount to economic sabotage. The President was ill advised on the move, bearing in mind what the sugar industry is facing in the country,” Namwamba said.

According to Namwamba, the government should be putting in more efforts to revive the sugar industry in Kenya, just like it released funds to bailout Mumias Sugar Company a few weeks ago.

“Some of us applauded the President when he released KES 1 billion bailout cash for struggling Mumias Sugar Company, little did we know that this would happen,” Namwamba said.
