Security Message for U.S. Citizens

The U.S. Embassy advises U.S. citizens to refrain from driving or being on the streets in Kampala for the remainder of the day. Since midday, the Embassy has received some reports of disturbances at or near polling stations in Kampala, including the blocking of streets with large rocks, the throwing of rocks, and the setting of small fires. In addition, we advise U.S. citizens to monitor local media.
