    Background: A mediator from the Organisation of African Unity (OSU) visited Nairobi on Saturday (31 July) in efforts to ease tension between Kenya and Uganda. Mr. William Eteki Mboumoua of Cameroon -- Secretary General of the OAU -- had talks with Kenyan President Jomo Kenyatta.

    SYNOPSIS: Mr. Eteki visited the Presidential palace carrying a message form Uganda's President Idi Amin. He said he believed both countries wanted to settle the dispute. Mr. Eteki has been criticised inside Kenya for supposedly being pro-Ugandan. He said the fuel shortages in Uganda resulted in a "semi-blockade". However, he said he did not know whether this was Kenya's intention.

    Kenya has consistently denied any deliberate blockade, saying they want payment for goods imported by Uganda. Also present at Saturday's meeting was a special envoy from Zaire, Mr. Litho Moboti, who was in Nairobi to discuss the dispute. Kenya continues to insist on seven conditions before relations with Uganda will be brought back to normal. These include the withdrawal of Ugandan troops from the Kenyan border.

    Differences between the two countries intensified when Israeli planes refuelled in Kenya on their way home from a raid on Entebbe Airport in Uganda where more than 100 hijack hostages were freed. President Amin accused Kenya of complicity in the raid four weeks ago.
