The US government has dismissed reports that it imposed a travel ban on parliamentary speaker Rebecca Kadaga over her stance on homosexuality.
Kadaga is due to attend the Global Peace Convention 2012 from November 29 to December 1 in Atlanta, Georgia. However, the US mission in Uganda says they value Kadaga's right to express her views.
"We urge those who have started these rumours to retract them immediately!" said Dan Travis, Public Affairs Officer at the US Mission in Uganda.
