The US embassy in Uganda’s capital, Kampala, is sharing tweets on how it has over the time funded the Ugandan government with millions of dollars through various programs.
The move comes after the Ugandan government accused the foreign agents of funding and supporting opposition figure Robert Kyangulanyi aka Bobi Wine.
Some of his supporters and colleagues claim that security agents tortured and forced them to reveal the legislator’s source of funding.

Jacquline Wolfson, a founder of Shule Foundation — an NGO which supports former street kids, was deported from Uganda after accusations of secretly funding the Kyadondo East legislator.
During a press briefing early this month, Bobi Wine’s international lawyer Robert Amsterdam also downplayed the claims saying it’s Museveni’s government which is a foreign agent of the American military.
A few days ago, Deborah Malac’s team in Uganda started sharing information on some key programs the US has funded in Uganda, including health and agriclture.
