“We have significant concerns about Uganda’s recent elections,” a State Department representative said in a statement emailed to The New York Times.
“The United States has made clear that we would consider a range of targeted options, including the imposition of visa restrictions, for Ugandan individuals found to be responsible for election-related violence or undermining the democratic process.”
