A row is brewing between clearing agents in the port of Mombasa and a Ugandan property holdings company under construction at the port.

The Kenya & Uganda Shipping association officials claim that the Ugandan company is denying their members business from Uganda alleging that the company is handling all the goods entering and leaving Uganda.

The company in Question is Uganda Property Holdings limited which begun construction mid last year and now it is nearing completion and has advertised for a shipping company from Uganda to handle the clearing and forwarding services.

The presence of this company however is causing ripples among the clearing agents in the city and shipping association officials now say allowing the company to have a monopoly in clearing and forwarding of all the motor vehicles entering and leaving Uganda will set a bad precedent for other East African countries.

They are now calling on the Kenyan government to intervene.
