UN Sex For Jobs Scandal in DRC Tracks to Sudan and Kosovo As Guterres Covers Up

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Honduras - CIA Trial Book - NY Mag

UN GATE Exclusive, Sept 12 –  The UN is involved in a sexual harassment and sex trafficking scandal in the Democratic Republic of Congo, of which Inner City Press is exclusively informed while the organization under Secretary General Antonio Guterres is trying to cover up.

   The UN mission's Supply Chain Management unit has been engaged in quid pro quo sexual harassment of women pre-hired as UN Volunteers. Those who do not provide sexual favors to UN officials are retaliated against.

From its exclusive publication in August 2022, Inner City Press has daily asked the UN, from Guterres, through Melissa Fleming to spokesman Stephane Dujarric about this scandal, including providing names involved. No answer; cover up - and no response to Inner City Press' application to enter and report on UNGA week.

Now on September 12, this wider perspective: "Dear Matthew, I read your article regarding sexual exploitation involving female UNVs in Supply Chain Management in MONUSCO. We are not  surprised by this situation. Mr. Amadu Timbilla, Chief SCM D1,  has been under OIC ASG   Supply Chain Management Anne Marie Van den Berg in Sudan, and she was the one that cleared him D1 and pushed for him to get the post he is occupying in Congo. Just to place the right people for the right job.. Mr. Timbilla and others in SCM are coming from the same school of sex predators like Ms. Sandi Arnold, famous CMS D1 in Kosovo, also cleared and supported by Ms. Van den Berg. What a coincidence… my Colleagues may add other names to this crew of people that support women only for sex or when they are their  wives, mistresses or future ones. It is worth saying that these people feel untouchable when supported at such a level because there is no punishment for them. MONUSCO Supply Chain Management is very much known for the mismanagement of contracts particularly in Engineering, Fuel and  for the complete ignorance and incompetence in SCM of his Leader. Despite many OIOS investigations, nothing concrete happened, except the recruitment of friends who always have the questions and the answers to be recruited. This time is just for sex. So according to the consolidated DOS practice, nothing unusual to report as nothing and nobody will be sanctioned or even investigated.  So corrupt."

From September 9, this exclusive reporting: "the current UNV Program Manager Mr Davy Muondongo who was previously under scrutiny in MINUSCA had been investigated for an altered PHP, is also part of the problem, he recruited his mistress Ms Irena as UNV Finance Assistant, she is incompetent. The Chief of Supply Chain uses him to cover up his dalliances and have recently started hiring women of other nationalities to cover up.   We Congolese are not happy with situation. They say we are not qualified yet they hire their mistresses."

From September 8, this additional exclusive reporting, not answered: a UN Volunteer Alia Basma a mistress of Amadu was promoted by Amadu Timbilla she had an intense relationship with The Chief of Integrated Warehouse Mr Joseph Ngidari she went to UNON in Nairobi.   Meanwhile there is the question of the whereabouts of a “missing UNV” who reported Tommy Bannister for harassment. The Chief of Supply Chain sent Tommy Bannister to “seduce” her, Tommy was also interested in a relationship and that did not turn out well, she reported and was literally sent out of Amadu’s office.   There is also the mystery of Ms. Susan Kamali, and Victoria Anderson and the Ethiopian Housekeeper and Ms Agnes, the alleged mistresses of Amadu Timbilla - more to follow. And from the UN, no answers. Cover up.

Previously, an Inner City Press update on September 6: "Tommy Bannister has been awarded a position in Kinshasa even after we believe the Chief of Supply bribed some witnesses, he is part of the scandal. The Chief of Supply Chain is Amadu Timbilla. He is currently applying for a position as Chief in MINUSCA as they are so ashamed... Concerned Congolese Staff who are tired of watching disturbing behavior by international staff This must stop we are going to report this at the highest authorities MONUSCO MUST GO Congo is our country, they steal and exploit us. 

  The current scandal-plagued United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the DR Congo is the successor to MONUC, whose chief Alan Doss was exposed by Inner City Press (before Guterres banned it from the UN, with his Melissa Fleming ignore the appeal) as hiring his personal chef as an engineer.

This practice has continued, with another cook (not Bannister) hired.  This cook is one Thomas Ziem...

 Inner City Press has the names of those involved; it is informed that Guterres' Assistant Secretary General for Human Resources Martha Helena Lopez is well informed but has yet to act.

Inner City Press will have more on this. Watch this site.
