In Cameroon China Brags Of Taking Over Education While UN Guterres Censors For CEFC Links

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR PFT NYP

UNITED NATIONS GATE, August 16 –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 with Guterres gone missing for two weeks, this: "YAOUNDE, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- Wilfred Gabsa Nyongbet, Secretary General of Cameroon's Ministry of Higher Education, on Wednesday hailed as "excellent" the cooperation with China in higher education.  Nyongbet made the remarks during a ceremony to bid farewell to 128 Cameroonian students who will study in China with scholarships. "This is a true demonstration of the excellent bilateral friendship between our two countries," he said.  "They are going to learn the type of technology that we need for the emergence of Cameroon... We are willing to continue the collaboration in the higher education sector," Nyongbet added.  Among the 128 students, 45 benefit from the Chinese government scholarship, 83 from the Confucius Institute scholarship.  Speaking at the ceremony, Chinese ambassador Wang Yingwu said the number of Chinese scholarships awarded to Cameroon students in 2019 hit a record high since 2006. "China is ready to work with Cameroon to enhance cooperation in education to a higher level," he said.  "China is advanced in technological sectors, and there is a transfer of know-how in its cooperation with Cameroon. The scholarship is an opportunity for me to study in China, and apply what I have learned back home," a scholarship winner Francis Yonkeu Nya told Xinhua.  More than 3,000 Cameroonian students are now studying in China, among them about 300 are beneficiaries of Chinese government scholarship, according to the Chinese embassy to Cameroon." This while Guterres conceals his financial links to CEFC China Energy and has Inner City Press banned for 408 days and counting. And what do missing censor Guterres, and his Global Communicator Melissa Fleming who has been written to, say? So far, nothing. Watch this site.

  On July 22 Inner City Press was provided from Yaounde with video a protest in prison by people illegally detained. Inner City Press asked Guterres, his deputy Amina J. Mohammed, his vacationing (in France) spokesman Stephane Dujarric and his deputy Farhan Haq: "July 22-3: On Cameroon, after the SG took Biya's golden statue and UN Budget Committee favors, what are the comments and actions if any from him and separately DSG Amina J. Mohammed on the protests today by those Ambazonians illegally detained in Kondengui Central Prison?"

  While Haq's dying noon briefing lasted only until 12:14 pm he did not answer this or any other written question from Inner City Press, which published the video here

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