As Cameroon Journalist Martinez Zogo Killed UN Guterres Who Props Up Biya Bloviates in Cabo Verde

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell book

UN GATE, Jan 22 – Two issues on which UN Sec-Gen Antonio Guterres has not only failed but been a hypocrite - press freedom and Cameroon - have come together. And his UN, including spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming, have typically been silent while refusing all Inner City Press questions.

   Guterres amid the slaughter of Angophones by the army of octogenarian Paul Biya went to Yaounde and took a golden statue from Biya. Then he had Inner City Press which asked about it banned.  

 Guterres had cut a deal under which he would stay silent on Biya's mass killings in exchange for administrative favors in the UN Fifth (Budget) Committee, which Cameroon was chairing. 

 Now journalist Martinez Zogo, the director of Radio Amplitude, was kidnapped on January 17. His body was found four days later, on January 21.

And from the UN, nothing. Guterres is living the high live in Switzerland (as Biya has so often) and now Cabo Verde. There he said, in (very) false modesty, "I am not much of a person that cares about honours, but I was very moved when I received from the hands of the then Prime Minister [Carlos] Veiga, the Order of Amílcar Cabral." Like he took the golden statue from Paul Biya. We'll have more on this.
