I have directly raised the UK's concerns over the Ugandan authorities’ handling of the ongoing opposition protests with Foreign Minister Sam Kutesa. Our High Commission in Kampala, along with other EU member state missions, has raised our concerns directly with President Museveni. Our High Commission has also raised concerns with the Ugandan Prime Minister and Inspector General of Police.
The UK and its partners have urged the Ugandan authorities to respect their peoples' constitutionally guaranteed rights to peaceful exercise of the freedoms of speech and assembly, and that the police should respond proportionally to instances of unrest amongst demonstrators.
