In a strongly worded reaction, Tanzania, through its Minister for East African Community Affairs Samwel Sitta, said the trilateral agreements were threatening EAC integration.
This is the first such formal statement by Tanzania since the three countries met in Kampala in July and started planning grand regional infrastructure projects without involving Dar.
The presidents of Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda met in Kenya’s coastal town of Mombasa last month and, among other things, resolved to fast-track political federation, the EAC’s ultimate goal, apparently irking Dar most.
