The US withdraws from observing Uganda’s elections

The U.S has on Wednesday confirmed its decision to withdraw from observing Uganda’s upcoming election.

According to the US Ambassador to Uganda Natalie Brown, the decision follows a denial of more than 77% of their accredited observers.

She continued by noting that both internal and external observers ensure transparency and accountability.

“Sadly, I announce decision not to observe Uganda’s elections due to Uganda’s decision to deny more than 75% of our accreditation requests.A robust contingent of observers, including local entities, promotes transparency & accountability.” Said Natalie Brown.

Ugandans will be heading to the polls on Thursday 14th as tension grows over the recent arrests of opposition presidential candidates and control of media stations..
