KACITA Chairman Everest Kayondo said, “It has come to our attention that UNBS and the government of Uganda are scheming to collect a lot of taxes from the traders using this programme.”
He noted that UNBS has put confusing terms on any trader importing goods to the country including levying a tax of 15 percent on the quality of goods entering the country.
Kayondo added that last week the Minister for Trade, Industry and Cooperatives Hon. Amelia Kyambadde addressed the media on the launch of the programme without KACITA’S notice.
He stressed that the Minister allegedly called KACITA “people who want fake products on market” noting that it the reason why they are opposing the programme.
In the same meeting on Monday, Isa Ssekitto, KACITA spokesperson advised traders to be cool and patient as the issue is worked upon.
He further urged them to be careful about all the documents they receive in this period to avoid signing them out minus understanding where they come from.
