Salim Saleh plans export business to Burundi

Major General Salim Saleh, the disgraced brother of President Yoweri Museveni, is to sign a multimillion dollar beef export deal to Burundi, the semi-official ‘New Vision’ reported yesterday. The newspaper quoted Saleh as saying he would travel soon to sanctions-hit Burundi to negotiate the final terms of the US $10 million contract. Uganda has been a key supporter of the regional economic embargo against the Burundi government.
