The U.S. State Department today issued a statement to Black Star News in response to the attack by security personnel on Bobi Wine's entourage after the presidential candidate submitted his nomination papers for next year's election.

 

"As Secretary Pompeo emphasized in his October 8 statement, Upcoming African Elections, and again yesterday, the United States expects governments to hold free, fair, inclusive and credible elections, adhere to democratic norms, and support the rule of law for all their citizens," a spokesperson for the State Department said. "We are closely watching ongoing and upcoming elections across Africa. We will weigh consequences for those individuals who interfere in the democratic process or who are responsible for election-related violence."
