According to a press statement from the US Embassy in Kampala, Hammer will also underscore the U.S. government’s commitment to the region.
The trip comes at a time when the civil society is accusing the Uganda government of abusing human rights.
From Uganda, Hammer will travel to Nairobi, Kenya, Pretoria and Johannesburg, South Africa.
He departed Washington, DC on Monday.
While in Johannesburg, Assistant Secretary Hammer will deliver keynote remarks at the launch of the new location of the Africa Regional Media Hub, which is one of six media hubs around the world managed by the Bureau of Public Affairs.
The hubs – in Brussels, Dubai, Johannesburg, London, Miami and Tokyo – serve as conduits through which the Department communicates American foreign policy directly to international audiences.
