    The government yesterday moved to deny a report in an international newsletter indicating that President Museveni was snubbed by US President Barack Obama on a recent trip to New York.

    The Indian Ocean Newsletter, popular for its usual controversial stories on African strongmen, also added in its October 3 report that it was the first time the Ugandan leader had suffered such a diplomatic slight, a report dismissed by Foreign Affairs Permanent Secretary Ambassador James Mugume.

    “President Museveni would have liked to have a face-to-face meeting with his American counterpart Barack Obama during the recent United Nations General Assembly,” the report said.
