The Government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo on Friday during a rebuttal presser lambasted the United States administration for imposing sanctions on Ugandan government officials following a blood bathed chaotic January poll.
According to Opondo, the resolution of the Biden administration is misguided as the US has not endeavoured to even reach down to the ground and get first hand information. Opondo says US officials are instead relying on information from NUP bloggers and Bobi Wine whom he says divulge ‘false information’.
Opondo also adds that the US is even jealous of the fact that their candidate who he referred to as Bobi Wine (Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert) did not win. “They are just unhappy with the loss of the person they committed their support to,” Opondo said. “They supported NUP and its leader Bobi Wine but he did not win. We as Ugandans are unmoved by the sanctions. I am a proud Ugandan enjoying my country where there is sufficient food like Matooke. I am not dying to travel to the US so the sanctions cannot stop me from sleeping. Uganda can run without American money,” he added.
He further says that the Americans are naturally arrogant because of their military and economic prowess.
