On Uganda Corruption UN Guterres Babbles After Supporting Musevini CEFC China Energy

By Matthew Russell Lee, CJR Bobi Wine Scope

UN GATE, Nov 20 – Corruption in Uganda is not limited to Sam Kutesa as UN President of the General Assembly lining up bribes from CEFC China Energy, which is also linked to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres who bans the Press for it, now 871 days. Even banned, Inner City Press has daily asked Guterres and spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming about the crackdown on Bobi Wine. Nothing, no answers. Now this empty statement:

"The Secretary-General is following recent developments in Uganda and is concerned over reports of violence and fatalities, following protests in Kampala. He conveys his condolences to the families of the victims and wishes those injured a speedy recovery.       The Secretary-General condemns all acts of violence and calls on the Ugandan authorities to ensure that all perpetrators of human rights violations are held accountable. He also calls for the immediate release of any individual who may have been arbitrarily arrested.       The Secretary-General calls on the security forces to act in accordance with the rule of law and human rights principles and refrain from using violence. He also urges all political leaders and their supporters to participate in the electoral process peacefully, in accordance with the relevant regulations, and to refrain from any incitement of violence or hate speech.      Stéphane Dujarric, Spokesman for the Secretary-General   New York, 20 November 2020." Empty.

In a continuing attempt to (re) gain the support of Uganda's Museveni and Sam Kutesa, even after the guilty verdicts against Patrick Ho of China Energy Fund Committee for bribing at least Kutesa, and tellingly attempting to buy the oil company of Gulbenkian Foundation whose payments to Guterres he omitted from his public financial disclosure covering 2016, Guterres' UN has been silent. 

When this UNCA held its past annual meeting it could barely reach quorum (Periscope here); it covered over the glass doors of the clubhouse the UN gives it with a sign board.

Disgruntled members forwarded the "agenda" -- "1) Introduction of the new 2018 UNCA Executive Committee. 2) Presentation of UNCA sub-committees and their upcoming agendas. 3) Presentation of 2017 UNCA & UNCA Awards financials. 4) UNCA 70th anniversary. 5) Other matters." We'll have more on this.
