Speaking on the sidelines of the 54th Franco-German friendship treaty on Sunday, the United states Ambassador to Uganda, Deborah Malac has said that she does not expect the Trump administration to stop funding health and military support programs in Uganda and Africa in general Africa, saying that programmes such as the Presidential Emergency Relief Program for Africa (Pepfar) and the military interventions in Somalia and the Central African Republic have enjoyed bi-partisan support of leaders in US Congress, Republicans and democrats and she does not expect the Donald Trump administration to scrap it off.
She has told journalist in an interview that “I will not speculate what will change but like I have always said after the November elections, programmes like Pepfar in Uganda have enjoyed bi-partisan support of Congress, Republicans, and Democrats and I do not expect this to change”
Following president Donald Trump’s inauguration last Friday, several protests broke out in major world cities including the US itself and the United Kingdom where especially women and children marched in protest of Donald Trump’s attempts to repeal the Obama healthcare policy which seeks to address issues of maternal and child health care.
