    The business community in the capital Kampala under their umbrella body, Kampala City Traders Association (KACITA) has resolved to suspend using the Kenyan Mombasa port until the issues surrounding the new taxes is resolved.

    The move follows the introduction of cash bond tax by the Kenyan Revenue Authority which has seen over 600 containers of goods held at the port.

    KACITA chairperson Everest Kayondo Tuesday told a news conference in Kampala that effective today (Wednesday) traders will start using the Dar el salaam route.

    Ugandan importers have also threatened to take legal action against Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) over a directive that they deposit a cash bond equivalent to the value of imported cargo or bank guarantee before clearing their goods.

    karibuni sana lakini msifikiri bongo mtelemko. utafiti unaonesha bandari ya Dar es salaam ndio yenye longolongo nyingi kuliko bandari zote kusini mwa Africa. Msishangae matapoona mumeruka maji mkakanyaga tope.

    The congestion at DSM port is under pressure, surrounded by passive resistance, after top leaders turned out.
    Let's wait no longer we will hear something painfully...
