Sugar politics will weaken EAC integration, says MP

24 August 2015, 08:12 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - Kangema MP, Tirus Ngahu has scoffed at opposition leaders for politicizing the sugar deal between Kenya and Uganda.

Ngahu, who speaking in his constituency Saturday said the current politics surrounding the sugar deal may weaken East African Community (EAC) integration.

He said a campaign spearheaded by opposition leader Raila Odinga is out to sabotage the unity of the regional countries in social and economic spheres.

He said the deal between Kenya and Uganda should be respected since it is a strategy meant to solidify East African unity.

“East African counties should remain united and embark on trading opportunities to strengthen regional ties, as this will provide more market for goods produced locally,” said Ngahu during the inauguration of Grace Nyambura as the new chief for Tuthu location.

He said that Ugandan sugar has been in the Kenyan market for long and will fill the gap left by sugar factories in the country which are not in a position to produce the needed sugar capacity.

The MP said sugar factories in Kenya did not have the capacity to produce enough sugar, thus the need to import from the neighbouring country.

“We need to know that the cost of production of sugar in our country is high as compared to that of Uganda and other sugar producing countries like Egypt,” he said.

He accused the opposition of seeking political mileages through the sugar controversy.
