President Museveni on Saturday met Patrice Bauebo and other aviation officials
State House has responded to claims by a section of Ugandans on social media that the executive President Yoweri Museveni met over the weekend was not a representative of Airbus Group.
According to social media critiques, a google search was not linking Patrice to Airbus Group.
"In our story, "President meets Airbus representatives, assures Ugandans, Uganda Airlines will succeed, we mentioned that Mr. Patrice Y. Bouedo is a representative of Airbus Group.
We wish to clarify as such; that Mr. Patrice Y. Bouedo is the Vice President Sales - Africa of ATR," a statement released Tuesday June 6, 2017 stated.
ATR (Aerei da Trasporto Regionale or Avions de transport régional; Regional Air Transport) is a Franco-Italian aircraft manufacturer headquartered in Toulouse Blagnac International Airport in Blagnac, France.
It was formed in 1981 by Aérospatiale of France (now Airbus Group) and Aeritalia (now Leonardo) of Italy.
