Uganda Coffee Exports Rise After Kenya Election Dispute Resolved

Coffee exports from Uganda, Africa’s second-biggest exporter of the beans, rose year-on-year in April after a post-election dispute was resolved in neighboring Kenya, its gateway to the sea.

Shipments last month rose 76 percent to 248,749 60-kilogram (132-pound) bags, from 141,220 bags a year earlier, the Uganda Coffee Development Authority, the regulator, said late yesterday by e-mail from Kampala, the capital. The beans were worth $30.4 million, it said.
