Tanzania and Kenya are once again locked in a trade war over the testing of goods crossing their borders.
Kenya filed a complaint with the East African Community Secretariat after Tanzania held Kenyan goods for more than seven days to collect samples for testing. The directive took effect on February 25.
Acting director for quality management at the Tanzania Bureau of Standards (TBS) Lazaro Msasalaga told The EastAfrican that for three months, Kenya has subjected Tanzanian products to quality verification before entering its territory. This goes against a mutual agreement on the standards of goods traded within the East African Community.
“Spirits and tiles are some of the products from Tanzania that are subjected to quality verification before entering Kenya, despite having a TBS quality mark,” said Mr Msasalaga, adding that the Kenya Bureau of Standards (Kebs) has been taking samples of the products for verification in Nairobi, a process that can take a month.
“I wrote to Kebs about this matter, but they have never responded, prompting us to retaliate,” Mr Msasalaga said.
In a letter seen by The EastAfrican, TBS Quality Assurance Officer Simon Kidiga directed the agency’s officers at the borders and ports to inspect Kenyan products whether or not they have a Kebs quality mark.

“The consignments will be cleared after conforming to standards and other regulations as per our procedures,” said Mr Kidiga.
The EAC Secretariat warned the two countries against introducing more trade barriers. The EAC Secretariat’s director-general in-charge of Customs and Trade Kenneth Bagamuhunda said there shouldn’t be double testing.
“We are still trying to establish the facts on the ground. TBS is yet to give us a response on this issue,” Mr Bagamuhunda told The EastAfrican. Kebs had not responded to our questions on the matter by press time.
EAC partner states agreed that once the quality of a product has been tested and approved in the home country, it is allowed to enter a member state’s territory without being subjected to further screening. This is meant to reduce the cost of doing business in the region.
The Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) said its members incurred huge losses due to delayed clearance of goods. According to KAM, the metal and automotive sub-sectors have been the most affected by the standoff.
“This negates the spirit of regional integration,” said Phyllis Wakiaga, KAM chief executive.
Mr Kidiga said the directive is simply a short-term measure meant to “confirm” the quality of goods by Kenyan manufacturers entering the Tanzanian market.
Last week, Kenya’s Cabinet Secretary for EAC Affairs Adan Mohamed held a meeting with his Tanzanian counterpart to try and address the standoff at the Namanga border.
“We have agreed to dispatch senior officials to Namanga to resolve outstanding issues,” said Mr Mohamed on his Twitter handle.
Kenya and Tanzania have been locked in persistent trade disputes worsening their trade relations. Past disputes include a ban by Kenya on liquefied petroleum gas from Tanzania, which saw Dar retaliate by blocking Kenyan milk and its products, and cigarettes.

Mazuri gani hayo wakati viwanda vyetu vya maziwa vilikuwa vinakufa huku Kenyatta akitujazia maziwa yake hapa?

Cha kushangaza ni biashara Kati ya Kenya na Uganda ni balanced, and for the first time in 2018 in the first 6 months it was in Uganda's favour........
Yani serekali ya Kenya inasema haitozulia bidhaa yoyote kutoka Ug kwasababu pia Sisi tunawauzia bidhaa zetu nyingi , Uganda ndo waijulia Kenya, wakafungua mipaka yote na wakahakikisha pia Sisi tumewafungulia yetu........

State will not stop egg imports from Uganda
Mar,06,2019
The government will not stop the importation of eggs from Uganda as restrictive trade measures would attract similar action from the largest buyer of Kenyan goods.

Kenyan poultry farmers and entrepreneurs have been protesting over the grappling market due to the influx of eggs from Uganda, complaining they are struggling to break even due to the high cost of feed and low returns.

Price of a tray of eggs has gone down from Sh270 to Sh150 since last June and price of a single egg has dropped from Sh13 in 2015 to Sh10.

Kiptoo said the government will work on the formation of Kenya Trade Agency (KETRA) to protect any form of dumping and maintain sale at market value.

“There have been complains from businesses due to eggs and high quantities of milk in the markets from Uganda. We cannot stop the goods when Uganda has opened their borders for our goods as part of the regional integration,” Kiptoo said during the launch of Kenya National Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s membership services.

Uganda is the leading importer of Kenyan goods after buying goods worth Sh61.85 billion in 2018, according to Central Bank data.

The market surpasses other export markets including Pakistan that bought Sh59.38 billion and Netherlands Sh46.36 billion worth of Kenyan goods in the year.

Uganda’s imports from Kenya include edible oils, cement, steel, paper and medicines, mineral fuels, beverages, soaps and lubricants.

Kenyan imports from Uganda are coffee, tea, spices, sugar confessionary, cereals, tobacco, wood charcoal, waste of food industry and animal fodder.

Dairy products, eggs, honey and edible products from the country composed of 11.83 per cent at the value of Sh6.57 billion out of Sh55.5 billion total value of goods to Kenya in 2017.

Approximately 60 per cent of the eggs produced in Uganda is exported to Kenya. the Kiambu county government is planning to introduce legislation that will enable animal feed producers to improve the quality of their output. The move is expected to eventually lead to lower operational costs for poultry farmers, hence higher profits from selling their eggs.
