A group of human rights activists yesterday staged a demonstration at the US Embassy against Uganda’s Foreign Affairs minister Sam Kutesa becoming the next president of the UN General Assembly.
The group led by one Barbara Alimadi want the US government to revoke Kutesa’s travel documents to bar him from travelling to the US on account that he has a tainted personal record.
They also want Kutesa’s candidature cancelled ahead of voting due on Wednesday to give members ample time to review his personal record.
The group will deliver their petition today.
“We had our demo this morning at the embassy. What we wanted to do was to send out a message that on 11th June, we are opposed to the fact that Mr. Kutesa should be confirmed as the president of the UN General Assembly.
