Cameroon Biya Warlike Dialogue Decree Praised by UN Guterres Spun By VOA Reporter Who Works For Biya

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR PFT NYP

UN GATE, Sept 11 –After Paul Biya who has ruled Cameroon for 37 years on January 28 had his opponent Maurice Kamto arrested, Inner City Press again asked UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and his spokesmen for their comment and action, if any. This came after Guterres had Inner City Press roughed up on 3 July 2018 after it interviewed Biya's Ambassador about the two men's Budget Committee deals and banned from the UN since - Guterres even tried to get Inner City Press banned from the Park East Synagogue, here, which was denied / dodged by his French spokesman Stephane Dujarric, who put up then took down a podcast in which he brags about his "mutually assured destruction" relationship with journalists, here.

  Now UN favorite Voice of America has again written about ludicrous story about Cameroon, by Moki Edwin Kindzeka whom VOA pays as a freelancer while he works for Biya's state media CRTV, in which he writes: "In a rare address to his nation, Cameroon President Paul Biya said he has ordered the country’s prime minister to engage in an inclusive dialogue to discuss problems that are tearing the central African state apart, including violence that has killed more than 2,000 people in the troubled Anglophone regions.  Biya also called on foreign nations to help him stop Cameroonians in the diaspora from sponsoring violence back at home... The president said it was difficult to know who to talk to, as people claiming to be separatist leaders hid behind social media platforms to preach violence. He said he had ordered a national dialogue to be presided over by the prime minister with all Cameroonian political leaders, traditional rulers, lawmakers, the clergy and all elected officials, not only on the Anglophone crisis but on all the crises facing Cameroon.   Biya called on all fighters in the English-speaking regions to surrender and be forgiven, or face his military."

This is the speech that Antonio Guterres ghoulishly praised, and Dujarric refused to answer Inner City Press' questions about. Inner City Press has asked: "September 11-1: On Cameroon, given that Paul Biya's speech which SG Guterres immediately praised reiterated threats to crush "separatists" and denied that any marginalization has taken place, while leaders have been given life prison sentences, what is the meaning of Guterres' praise? Who worked on this statement - Francois Lonceny Fall? Rosemary DiCarlo? Had the Biya regime given the UN any heads-up? And again, where is the if-asked information about the Cameroon UN peacekeepers child rape in DRC?"

Inner City Press as of September 11 is being banned by Guterres and Melissa Fleming from covering the UN General Assembly, presided over by Nigeria's ambassador Tijjani Muhammed-Bande. We'll have more on this.

Inner City Press live tweeted the shameful May UNSC session and uploaded Guterres' envoy Francois Fall's failing statement here.
