Amid Gabon Coup Silence by UNSG Guterres who Bans Press Cameroon Bans The Post in SW

y Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

UN GATE, Sept 15 – The Bongo family, which has ruled French colony Gabon for more than 50 years, was deposed by a coup d'etat by the military on August 30, 2023.

 The day before, Inner City Press asked the UN and the US Mission to the UN about the opposition's complaints about Bongo's staged re-election, with the Internet cut. No answer.  

 Inside the UN, the spokesman for SG Antonio Guterres, who has often glad-handed with Bongo as with Paul Biya of Cameroon and others, hand picked three softball questions for Guterres' "press stake out" bragging about his travels to ASEAN and Cuba. He bans Inner City Press.

Now Cameroonian authorities have imposed an indefinite ban against The Post newspaper in the Southwest Region, accusing the outlet of “flagrant violation of professional norms,"

The ban followed the publication of a social media post showing a copy of the newspaper’s Monday front page with a headline, “66% of Cameroonians want a military coup.” It was based on a September 9 report in the weekly The Continent and a tweet about a survey of citizens in 36 countries between 2021 and 2022 by Afrobarometer, a pan-African, non-partisan research network based in Ghana. The survey found that while most Africans disapprove of military rule, “a slim majority (53%) are willing to endorse military intervention if elected leaders abuse their power,” including 66% of respondents in Cameroon, who agreed that “it was legitimate for the armed forces to take control of the government when elected leaders abuse power for their own ends.” 

Inner City Press on June 19 applied to UN MALU's Melissa Fleming to enter the UN and cover September's UNGA. Even as of August 30, no answer. A totally corrupt organization. Watch this site.
