The government is not revealing the amount of money it is expected to spend for the delegates attending the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) later this month.

Similar meetings in the past have been characterised by a large contingent who included party zealots and traditional leaders, a development that led to the abuse of public funds.

The government was also taken to task after some parastatals were forced to fund people attending the UN General Assembly.

Commenting on the issue, the Minister of Foreign Affairs Emmanuel Fabiano reveals that 19 people will attend the meeting, among them three ministers and President Peter Mutharika.

Fabiano added that the delegation includes three cabinet ministers, senior government officials and some members of the media.

Apart from that, there will be no party representatives in the delegation.

In the past years, President Peter Mutharika and his administration have come under pressure and scrutiny over allegations of bloated entourages to the UN General Assembly which is a drain of public funds. 

Mutharika has also been criticised over his prolonged stay in the states after conclusion of the meeting.

The UN general assembly is expected to start on the 19th of this month up to the 25th.

The UNGA one of the six principal organs of the United Nations (UN), the only one in which all member nations have equal representation, and the main deliberative, policy-making and representative organ of the UN.
