Kenya, Tanzania embroiled in diplomatic row over exports.


A diplomatic row is brewing between Kenya and Tanzania just days after the latter banned the exportation of unprocessed foods. President John Pombe Magufuli’s government is protesting at Kenya’s decision to ban the importation of cooking gas and wheat, saying it is a breach of the East African Community (EAC) Common Market requirements. Kenya, which has a maize shortage, cannot import the staple food from its neighbour.

But EAC Cabinet Secretary Phyllis Kandie said Kenya was seeking a solution through diplomatic channels.
