Be careful to whom you listen. Many will talk. Not all information is accurate.
If you want accurate information regarding the status of stability and safety within Uganda please go to the U.S. Embassy website here in Uganda.
The Embassy is aware that a message is being circulated on social media that claims the Unites States has ordered an evacuation of U.S. citizens from Uganda.
Such information is FALSE. The Embassy has NOT ordered any evacuation and no evacuation is underway. Please disregard the message because it is a deliberate hoax.
Email is still available here in Jinja. The power has been shut down. All social media remains blocked. Jinja is pretty calm with the exception of a potential eruption near city hall when the winner of the Parliament race is announced.
Kampala remains dangerous. Shops are closed. People are not moving. Some main roads have been blocked. Particularly the one leaving Kampala and headed toward the airport in Entebbe.
Messenger is allowing free video phone calls. Any contact with people in America is appreciated and comforting.
This concludes my Saturday update on the political crisis in Uganda ... while my laptop still has some battery power. I'll keep you posted.
