EU Finally Clarifies on It's "Spoilt" Relationship With Uganda on Meeting Museveni's NRM

Following various circulating information on social media platforms concerning the current relationship between Uganda and the European Union, the union held a meeting with Museveni's NRM party to make this clear. 

NBS Television: "The European Union delegation arrives at the NRM Secretariat ahead of their meeting with party members headed by party Secretary General Justice Lumumba Kasule."

Earlier during a nation address concerning security in Uganda, Museveni revealed that the European Union had announced that they were to ban Ugandan leaders who involved in violations of human rights in the previous January 14 election from traveling abroad.  

President Museveni: "In the papers, they are talking that some officials (Ugandans) who should not travel to Europe. Well, I need a lot of persuasion to leave Uganda. I normally do it for friendship. Some foreigners think they can come and change things here. Foreigners have a long mentality of wanting to dictate issues of Africa. With Uganda and the NRA, they have a long way to go."

While clarifying issues, the European Union stated that all the information that have been circulating are fake and aimed at interfering with the relationship that has existed between the Union and Uganda for the past 45 years. 

NBS Television: "Someone is creating problems between the European Union and the government. There is a lot of false information circulating and this is spoiling our relationship that has existed for the last 45 years - Head of Delegation @EUinUG, Attilio Pacific."

A few hours later, the Union slammed a fake letter that was trending on social media dubbed "Call for Termination of Plan B" that was addressed to Forum for Democratic Change Secretary from a European Union official as seen below.

European Union in Uganda: "Please disregard a fake letter circulating online allegedly written to Forum for Democratic Change Secretary General Hon. Nandala Mafubi from the European Union Ambassador to Uganda H.E Attilio Pacifici. This is the latest of many attempts at disinformation in Uganda. Say no to disinformation."
