VP Alupo Clash With PM Nabbaja At the UN- General Assembly. Uganda sends 70 Delegates Making it the country with the biggest number of Representatives.

Vice President, HE Rt. Major Jessica Alupo, Prime Minister Nabbaja Robinnah, Minister for General Duties, Justine Kasule Lumumba, Ambassador Adonia Ayebare, Foreign Minister Jeje Odongo, Minister of Health, Dr. Ruth Aceng, and other 60 delegates from Uganda are in the United States of America for the ongoing UN-General Assembly.

According to inside sources, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni designated Vice President, HE Jessica Alupo to represent him and Uganda at large at the United Nations General Assembly, in the United States of America.

Alupo was shocked when Prime Minister, Rt. Hon. Nabajja Robinah showed up with a huge delegation of more than 60 delegates from Uganda.

 This brought mixed feelings in New York amongst the organisers on who should present on behalf of Uganda.

Surprisingly, Only the Vice President and the prime Minister were allowed to present at the main event. 

"I have addressed the Sustainable Development Goals Leaders’ Conference at the ongoing SDGs Summit at the UN headquarters in New York, US. 

The conference focused on applying science, technology, Innovation, and data for transformative action. 

I informed my fellow leaders that our country is committed to utilizing science, technology, and innovation to accelerate the attainment of the SDGs. 

We have, for instance, set up a National Science Technology and Innovation System based on key industrial value chains that are linked to the SDGs"- PM Nabajja.

The SDG Summit will be a central UNGA 78 event. It will bring together leaders and communities to reaffirm commitment to the Sustainable Development Goals at the halfway mark to 2030. 

The Climate Ambition Summit kicked off on  September 20 and it is an opportunity for leaders to demonstrate their collective commitment to respond to the mounting climate emergency. During UNGA 78, the United Nations Foundation will highlight key moments, and share insights and perspectives from leaders, experts, and influencers across borders and sectors.

How is the big Number of Ugandan Delegates affecting Uganda Economically?

We are reliably informed that not less than two (2) million shillings are being spent on each delegate from Uganda. This means that More than One Hundred and forty (140) Million shillings of Taxpayers' money is being spent per night on our delegates.     

We have been tipped off that other developed countries have not sent more than Five  (5) delegates to represent their countries at this Assembly.
