The Kenya Transporters Association Limited (KTA) has called off its protest at the Malaba border between Kenya and Uganda after Uganda suspended the mandatory testing of truck drivers at its borders following the East African Community (EAC) member states inter-ministerial meeting on Monday, 10 January 2022. During the meeting, the regional inter-Governmental organisation had agreed that Ugandan authorities should conduct antigen tests for free to all drivers to ease the traffic congestion at the border. As well as, all countries should follow the current EAC protocols, and Uganda should not revert to a 72-hours validity period of results until all EAC countries have discussed and agreed on the same. Furthermore, a follow-up meeting will be held on 14 January 2022 to review the situation.
