Minister, MPs clash over Chinese petty traders

Legislators sitting on the parliamentary committee of trade recently clashed with Trade Minister Amelia Kyambadde over the presence of Chinese traders still involved in petty trade.

The follow decisions reached earlier that that the foreign traders either set up bigger businesses or leave the country within 3 months.

Kyambadde whose temper flared especially during an exchange with Kampala Woman Legislator Nabila Naggayi Ssempala said the deadline was extended till the end of this month as the earlier deadline was too short to enforce.

All this hullabaloo came after the committee visited Uganda’s central business area of Kikuubo in September to assess the situation, with local traders complaining of being driven out of business with cheaper merchandise from foreign markets especially China.
