Government of Uganda on Wednesday, January 15 issued a Protest Note to the Government of Kenya expressing deep concern about illegal seizures of Ugandan made milk and milk products under Lato brand, causing heavy financial losses to the company.

The seizures executed on three separate occasions during the month of January 2020 contravene the East African Community Customs Union Protocol.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in the Protest Note, Uganda requested Kenya to do the following;

1. Immediately release the seized consignments of Lato branded milk;
