President Yoweri Kaguta Tibuhaburwa Museveni’s government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo has castigated the US government’s decision to impose a visa ban on Ugandan officials accused of undermining democracy.
On April 16, President Joe Biden administration’s Antony Blinken announced travel restrictions against Ugandans.
But secretary Blinken didn’t mention names of those against who the restrictions would work.
Reacting to the visa ban, Opondo described the visa ban as “cheap blackmail.”
The government spokesperson has urged Washington to list the affected officials and detail the crimes they committed.
“Without mentioning the specific officials by name, title, incidents and offences this so-called visa ban is neither here nor there,” said Opondo.
US secretary of state Antony Blinken on April 16 announced visa restrictions against Ugandans accused of ‘undermining democracy’ and engaging in pre and post-election human rights violations.
But Blinken didn’t mention names of those affected by the travel ban and attendant restrictions.
