The result of UN Secretary General, Guterres’ sold out diplomacy – a Potemkin Village of fake dialogue accompanied by violence and censorship. Guterres is no better than Biya. At least Biya is officially senile. What is Guterres’ excuse?
Now on December 1 Guterres’ resident coordinator in Yaoundé has issued a statement about a death — it’s good she does this, but she has remained silent on many, many killings by Biya’s forces, like Guterres has: “Yaounde, 1 December 2019 – The Humanitarian Coordinator in Cameroon, Ms. Allegra Baiocchi, strongly condemns the killing of an aid worker in north-west Cameroon. “I am deeply saddened by the news of the horrific execution of an aid worker last night. On behalf of the United Nations and the wider humanitarian community, our deepest condolences go to his family, friends and colleagues,” said Ms. Baiocchi. On 30 November, Mr. Pascal Ngwayi, of COMINSUD, a local NGO and UN partner, was abducted and later killed by armed men in Donga Mantung Division of the North West Region.” We’ll have more on this.
On November 28 Guterres was silent again about Cameroon, the continued lock up of a sick journalist (Guterres in his sick away enjoys and continues his retaliation against investigative journalism which asks how he spends public money, today in Lisbon) – while “Yaoundé Special Criminal Court decision to reject a request for Amadou Vamoulké’s provisional release although two medical reports say this journalist needs treatment abroad and his continuing detention violates Cameroonian law.
On November 5 before 8 am Inner City Press in writing asked Guterres, Stephane Dujarric, Melissa Fleming and of course Amina J. Mohammed, “November 5-2: On Cameroon and press freedom, what are the belated comments and actions of SG Guterres on that the South West Chapter of Cameroon Journalists Trade Union have showed up in court for their detained colleague, Samuel Wazizi.
Five days later, nothing at all. Nor on Cameroon peacekeepers’ sexual abuse. Guterres and the other three are entirely corrupt. And see their partners in censorship. US President Trump has written to the U.S. Congress, cutting off trade benefits to Biya’s Cameroon: “I am taking this step because I have determined that the Government of Cameroon currently engages in gross violations of internationally recognized human rights, contravening the eligibility requirements of section 104 of the (African Growth and Opportunity Act).”
Trump took this action while Guterres covers up Cameroon “peacekeepers” rapes of children in CAR, and torching of villages in SW and NW. The dialogue of which Guterres made so much, while banning all Press questions about it, is dead.
