He uttered the above on Thursday in a meeting organized by traders as they meet Minister of Trade, Industry and Cooperatives, Amelia Kyambadde to address the issue of controlling importation of counterfeit and substandard goods into the country.

Kayondo noted that two committees were formed to address the issue of brutal handling of Ugandans in South Sudan and business disputes; however, nothing has been achieved yet.

“One committee was to operate in Sudan and another here in Uganda but it seems they are of no help,” he added.

This follows the death of two Ugandan truck drivers who were killed and one injured in Nasida 25kms from Juba the capital city of South Sudan on Sunday by suspected armed robbers.

Kayondo alleged that in S. Sudan when a Ugandan is knocked by a motorcycle, he is charged for charged of being knocked on foreign land that and does not receive any justice, which Kayongo laments as unfair Ugandans based in Juba.

He further called upon the Ministry of Trade, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the IGP to act on the welfare of Ugandans who are operating business in S. Sudan.
