In Cameroon Confucius Institute Colludes With Biya Crackdown Like UN Guterres Taking Bribes From Both

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR PFT NYP

UNITED NATIONS GATE, June 22 –After Paul Biya who has ruled Cameroon for 37 years on January 28 had his opponent Maurice Kamto arrested, Inner City Press again asked China-captured 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 asked about CEFC China Energy's UN bribery and got 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.

   The connection of Guterres-favored China and Cameroon continues: "Fifty-nine students from the Confucius Institute in Cameroon received a scholarship on Friday from the Chinese ambassador Wang Yingwu.  The scholarship was shared among the students who performed exceptionally well in the Chinese proficiency test (HSK) and during the class.  Ariane Zetchounag, 24, level 2 student at the Confucius Institute and a receiver of the Chinese ambassador scholarship, said the prize will assist her in learning Chinese language more proficiently.  “By studying China and its culture, these young Cameroonians will be carriers of the message of friendship between our two countries,” ambassador Wang said.  Friday’s ceremony also congratulated the outstanding Chinese teachers of the 2018-2019 school year.  One of the awardees was Gao Yajia, who is leaving Cameroon after volunteering for two years.  “It’s an unforgettable moment, and I’m so grateful to my students, my colleagues, and my family who I missed so much during my stay abroad,” Gao said. She was very attached to his Cameroonian students, “one day we would meet again in China.”   Yeah.

 Others are bought in, including the EU. On June 13, state media of China which props up Biya and has essentially purchased Guterres and the UN he runs reported: "YAOUNDE, June 13 (Xinhua) — A European Union (EU) official on Thursday praised efforts by the Cameroonian government to initiate dialogue to end the conflict in the country’s troubled English-speaking regions.  “We welcome the statement by President (Paul) Biya and the declaration that the Prime Minister (Joseph Dion Ngute) made in the regions showing opening for dialogue,” said Gerardus Gielen, head of the European External Action Service Central African Division." The EU, which allows Guterres to rough up and ban the Press right in the UN, is hitting a new low with this.
