In UNSC In October South Africa Has 40 Meetings None on Cameroon Press Banned

By Matthew Russell Lee, Photos, Periscope

UN GATE, October 1 – With the UN Security Council presidency for October being taken over by South Africa's Jerry Matjila, he bragged in his 1 October 2019 press conference that there would be 40 meetings in the month.

None, though, on the slaughter in Cameroon. And Inner City Press which most asks about that UN failure remains banned from the UN by Antonio Guterres. Matjila's predecessor Mutaboba raised it; Matjila has not. It was whispered to him to hand the third question to his own state media, after the first question was by the head of UNCA just back from a junket in China, asking about Chinese power. This is today's UN.  

The Great Lakes of Africa? Guterres' envoy Huang Xia will brief on October 3. Killing off the mission in Haiti, after the UN killed 10,000 people with cholera and didn't pay one cent. Lunch with corrupt Guterres on the 17th, after reviewing his corrupt policies on Yemen and then Darfur. A trip to Addis and side trip to Juba - Inner City Press used to go on such Council trips, until Guterres' reign of censorship - and at the end, Burundi on which Matjila was apologetic. Kafando has failed. We'll have more on this.

  Matjila mock referred questions to Marthinus van Schalkwyk; there is no mechanism to get news of transparency from this Mission.

 Inner City Press' last application for re-accreditation to enter and cover the UNSC stakeout, submitted on 15 April 2019, was denied without explanation on April 17. ("Greetings Matthew LEE from ICP     INNER CITY PRESS,  Your media accreditation request, with reference no: M66561081, has been declined.")  This was repeated for the UNGA week, with nothing from South Africa.

 Alamy photos here. Earlier on September 1 in Alemu's briefing to countries not on the Security Council, Bangladesh specifically asked that the Council remain seized of the situation in Myanmar. When Inner City Press asked Alemu about this, he said he still had to inform himself more about that situation. The Security Council is traveling to Addis from September 5 through 9, when alongside African Union consultations the Council's member will meet for an hour with Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn, Alemu said. The Council will receive the “maiden briefings” late in the month of the new Under Secretaries General of OCHA and on Counter-Terrorism. There will be peacekeeping on September 20, during the High Level week of the UN General Assembly, and Yemen on September 26. But tellingly, there will not be Burundi. Watch this site.
