US issues warning for her citizens in Uganda
The US government has issued a security alert to its citizens residing in or intending to travel to Uganda ahead of the country’s presidential election slated for February 18 and local election scheduled between February 24 and March 10.
In a statement published on its passports and international travel department website, U.S government says all its citizens are urged to exercise caution and remain abreast of the security situation throughout the electoral period.
According to the statement, U.S citizens are supposed to review their personal security plans; remain aware of their surroundings, including local events; and monitor local news stations for updates.
The travel alert comes just a week after the U.S warned of “deteriorating” electoral environment in Uganda.
