Towards the Free Movement of People between Uganda and Southern Sudan?

“I think we better abolish the visa regime and I am going to inform my government so that anybody with a South Sudanese or Ugandan travel document can walk into each other’s country and trade freely”, said [Ugandan Minister of Commerce] Otafire. 
He added that the use of visas “was an introduction of the colonialists to differentiate the people and their countries”. 
He said that abolishing travel permits between the two countries will allow open movement of goods and services which will in turn boost the economic development of the two countries. 
The minister added that enhanced trade will also boost relations between the neighbouring countries.
