South Sudan UN Guterres Rep Shearer Refuses To Protect Machar After UN Covered Up Its Killings

By Matthew Russell Lee, Exclusive audio, II

UNITED NATIONS GATE, April 12 -- The UN of Secretary General Antonio Guterres has refused to answer Press questions about the murder of two South Sudan civilians by a UN peacekeeper from Rwanda, and a new case of UN sexual exploitation by an international staff member from Nigeria -- nationality undisclosed by Guterres' UN - in South Sudan. But while killing civilians and refusing Press questions about it, now there is a strike which has left the UN's vaunted Tomping camp uncleaned. The UN of Guterres refused to answer Inner City Press' simple questions about it. Now we explusively publish this second audio of Guterres' rep David Shearer, saying among other things that the UN can't / won't protect Riek Machar. So why is UNMISS taking $1 billion a year? Which isn't Guterres impeached? On April 11 we exclusively published this audio of Guterres' rep David Shearer, deriding IGAD as apathetic, praising now deposed Bashir, saying there is no pressure on Kiir. Shearer should be fired - and Guterres should be impeached. Watch this site for more audio.  Inner City Press as informed: "Dear Mathew,  Long time, there is a dispute between the cleaning contractor and  the worker. It is simple exploitation in the UNMISS. Their salary is 300 USD. However, they do not pay them in dollar. Just pay them by changing in black market in South Sudanese currency which is below 300 USD. The cleaner demanded their salary to be paid and requested UNMISS to support them. They strike today and will continue tomorrow. The below information is sent to UNMISS staff about the situation. The company should pay them their salary and stop changing the black market and paying their money. Please edit and make their voice louder.   We regret to inform you that Ecolog cleaners went on strike today, 8th March 2019, which disrupted cleaning services in Tomping and UN House." From the UN to the Press, no answers, just corruption and censorship. The UN continues to crack out supposed "protection of civilians" statistics like this on February 18: "UNMISS “Protection of Civilians” (PoC) Sites As of 14 February 2019, a total of number of civilians seeking safety in six Protection of Civilians (PoC) sites located on UNMISS bases is 192,859 including 114,330 in Bentiu, 29,190 in Malakal, 32,134 in Juba UN House, 2,177 in Bor, and 115 in UNMISS base and 14,913 in the area adjacent to UNMISS in Wau “.  Region Location Number of Civilians Seeking  Protection  Central Equatoria UN House PoC I & III 32,134 Unity Bentiu 114,330 Upper Nile Malakal 29,190 Jonglei Bor 2,177 Western Bahr el Ghazal  Wau 115 AA 14,913 TOTAL 192,859 Source: The figures reported are based on Biometric Registration conducted by IOM in Bor (November 2018), UN House (October 2018), and the headcounts conducted in Wau PoC1 and Wau Adjacent Area (November 2018), Bentiu (November 2018) and Malakal by DRC (October 2018)." Now Inner City Press which asked has heard more on what is actually going on in UNMISS: "In late 2018 we exposed the corruption in recruitment in UNMISS perpetrated by the mafia led by David Shearer. We pointed out among others the corrupt recruitment of Francesca Mold and the former British Mi5 Guy Bennet and Ugandan self proclaimed spy Levi Ochieng  to posh positions in the UN for which they barely had the qualifications for. We have now been proven correct in our investigation as Guy Bennett has quietly been offered the position after a parody of recruitment under UN rules. Through one of the longest serving Chiefs of Staffs based in UNMISS since its inception and who because of his incompetence has never been able to move or be promoted. David Shearer knows that and used him and Egunsola is now assured of an extension of contract probably till his retirement as he has consistently delivered to the satisfaction of his boss. During the parody of recruitment, a total of 131 candidates sat for the written test. 31 passed to the competency based interview stage which for all intents and purposes could not be classified as a competency based interview given that the whole exercise was a farce. 15 out of 31 passed the oral interview. All but one of the internal candidates were rostered. There had to be a sacrificial lamb to show that the exercise was not to roster the internal or former internal candidates so some one had to be failed and that was none other than the nemesis of the Chief of Staff. Four candidates were recommended. 2 males and 2 females for a position that had been cancelled and re-advertised on the basis that they wanted to get female candidates. All the four recommended candidates miraculously rejected the offer and so Mr. Guy Bennett became the automatic beneficiary before the Nigerian who had hitherto been acting for almost two years before he was ejected in order to preposition Guy Bennett. So for a position that was supposed to be filled by a woman it was now filled by Mr. BENNETT leaving other women on roster and without asking other male candidates if they wanted. What an ending for an organization that prides itself of integrity and professionalism." Yes, Guterres is killing the UN - and this is his characteristic faux feminism. More: "Mr. Olayinka  Adeyemi who was accused of Sexual harassment has been advised to resign not to lose his benefits. In line of this, chief of staff of the mission who is idle and inactive in performing his job has declared to resign as of  May. The chief of staff  has been constantly gossiping and blaming SRSG Shearer that he was sidelined  due to... impermissible factors, the racism that has grown during Guterres' time so far as UNSG. In other development, UNDSS chief from New York has never taken any action for staff member who banned  staff not to contact New York unless approved by his office. This is totally  against the rule and the procedure of whistle  blower policy. This  proves  lack of managerial capacity and ignorant about the UN system. It is not worst nor best practice to send New York with out copy the chief if staff member feels uncomfortable about the situation. Whistle  blower policy of UN supports staff member to report any irregularities directly to official.  The statement sent by  Thomas Acheampong  which is agaisnt the rule was:  'Dear Colleagues, It has been noted that security officers continue to  communicate directly with DSS HQ on policies and other official issues in spite of the fact that you have been advised not to do so. Worst  of all, these correspondences are done without  copying the PSA  or security management in Juba.  This is against best practices and should  be stopped.  Once again please be reminded to direct all your concerns regarding security policies and other official issues to  security management in Juba. Where it is deemed that UNDSS HQ’s input is required,  management in Juba will do so.  Kind regards, Thomas Acheampong'." But Guterres' South Sudan rep David Shearer, in a briefing Guterres banned Inner City Press from for the 216th day, lied by omission. He was asked about the deaths of civilians, who was responsible - and said NOTHING about his peacekeepers killing two civilians. This is a new low for the UN, as was the briefing, with multiple softball questions by Agence France Presse -- "you're hogging the limelight," Shearer said -- after a first and last question given by Dujarric to his censorship partner James Bays of Al Jazeera. The only news was negative, or telling. Just like Guterres skipped the urgent UNSC meeting on Venezuela on January 26 to stay in his $15 million mansion, now Guterres will skip South Sudan on his next junket. But will he stop in Lisbon? Covered up by Dujarric and his partners: Guterres has been petitioned by the impacted community about the murder of Morris Kenyi Loburi and Legge Moses Kwatli, which he has so far covered up. Inner City Press has been obtained the petition by whistleblowers and now publishes it here, 3-page version here. Their story is heartbreaking - rather than flee to Uganda, they stayed and took work with the UN, and were killed in cold blood, after the UN also committed sexual abuse and exploitation in Wau and elsewhere. The staff member most recently accused of sexual exploitation is from Nigeria, the country of Guterres' Deputy Secretary General Amina J. Mohammed, where in another undisclosed trip she is doing political work for President Buhari right now. Their deputy spokesman Farhan Haq has refused to even acknowledge the written questions of Inner City Press, banned by Guterres and Mohammed for 205 days and counting, see below. On January 25 Inner City Press asked Guterres' deputy spokesman Farhan Haq questions including: "January 25-2: On South Sudan and the questions you have refused to answer, immediately confirm or deny that (1) the nationality of the "international" charged with sexual exploitation is Nigerian; separately (2) that the individual's name is Mr. Olayinka Adeyemi, (3) that he work(ed) for the  "Code of Conduct" Unit. Please respond to UNMISS sources saying the nationality was withheld, unlike in other cases, because he and the DSG are from Nigeria.  January 25-3: On the killing of two civilians by the UN in South Sudan, on which you have refused to answer Inner City Press' question despite Spox Dujarric on camera statement that questions would be answered, please immediately confirm that it took place at Durupi camp as they were doing UN contracted work on the fence, and state what accountability there has been, and the nationality - and separately name(s) - of the shooter(s).  January 25-4: On UN corruption and South Sudan, please immediate respond to what whistleblowers have told Inner City Press, that bringing everything in this country. Whiskey and Cigarette under SOFA agreement,” the Customs Service revealed. UNMISS General Ayii said has a sub-contractor called "Tri-Star" Company, an Indian company which has been dealing in these goods. However, he said the government would soon review the tax exemption policy regarding UN agencies in South Sudan. This comes after the institution found out that it has been losing billions of pounds to some goods imported by the UN agencies and humanitarian groups.  “I have been in Nimule as chief customs officer for 8 years, so I know any secret of any NGO in this country,” he said. He questioned the purpose for which these items are brought given the frequency of their importation into the country “How come the UNMISS brings 200 JET A1 in every month, or even Solar panels and fuel, 200 and 300 every month.”   UNMISS gave for some companies to bring items in the name of UN and nobody knows the whereabout of the items. There are stores giving the service in the UNMISS but did not go proper bidding . They are importing tax free items for the stuff but they are selling expensive more than the outside stores." No answers - Guterres and Dujarric are covering up sexual exploitation, and the killing of civilians.
