Minister Baryomunsi firmly said that the list published by the media was not correct. He emphasized that not everyone mentioned on the list had actually traveled to the UN General Assembly. He gave an example, saying, “Hon. Musenero is on that list, but she didn’t travel.”

According to the minister, the confusion about the delegation’s size arose because there were three different meetings happening at the same location, and each required its own delegation.

“There was a meeting on SDGs where the prime minister went, the UN assembly attended by the vice president,” clarified Baryomunsi.
