Police in Uganda have arrested two youth activists campaigning for the US presidential candidate, Donald Trump, in front of the American embassy in Kampala.
The five demonstrators attempted to access the embassy grounds to campaign for the Republican candidate but were denied entry by security. They carried placards that read, “A vote for Trump is a vote against African dictatorship.”
Hakim told the media that they were campaigning for Trump because he’s promised to fight dictatorship across the world.
The police spokesman termed the incident as an “embarrassment” and said they will likely be charged with unlawful assembly, which might carry a penalty of up to one year in prison under the Uganda penal code.
