This follows the dismissal of the petition by court
The US government has asked Ugandans to respect the court's decision regarding the election petition by former presidential candidate Amama Mababazi.
This follows the dismissal of the petition by the Supreme Court.
According to a statement issued by the U.S embassy in Kampala, the US government said "we encourage all Ugandans to respect the court's decision of non-compliance by election commission officials and interference by security authorities".
"We hope that the government will now address the grievances voiced by its own people in the wake of these elections and take the necessary steps to enact reforms that will guarantee political inclusivity, transparency, accountability and free and fair elections. Uganda's future prosperity and democratic progress will depend on such actions" the statement further read.
