Ruto and Museveni to Hold Talks Addressing Fuel Import Dispute

President William Ruto is set to meet with Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni to address the fuel import dispute that led to Uganda taking Kenya to the East African Court of Justice (EACJ).

The meeting aims to diplomatically resolve the issue, which arose when Kenya rejected Uganda’s request to use its pipeline for transporting fuel from Mombasa to Kampala.

Kenya argued that such a move would impact its local oil marketing companies.

East African Community and Regional Development Cabinet Secretary Peninah Malonza confirmed the leaders’ scheduled meeting, emphasizing the right of each EAC member state to pursue its trade interests based on democratic principles.

“There is a scheduled meeting between the two presidents to discuss the impasse and Kenya will also seek to explain her position during the next East Africa Community Heads of States Summit,” the CS told journalists in Kitui on Friday.
