What you need to know:

  • Kenya and Uganda have in the past year been embroiled in serious feuds of several products including sugar, milk, and poultry products.
  • Only last month, Uganda protested a 79 percent cut on its scheduled sugar exports to Kenya.

Kenya and Uganda are set to take another stab at easing trade tensions between them amid jitters on whether the two countries would find a lasting breakthrough.
