As UNSC Prez South Africa Bans Cameroon Qs Cravenly Praises Guterres on W Sahara

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Periscope
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - CJR - PFT

UN GATE, Dec 1  – In the United Nations from which SG Antonio Guterres has banned Inner City Press 882 days for asking about his complicity in the killing of civilians in Cameroon, poisoning them in Haiti with cholera and COVID in South Sudan, and their mass imprisonment by China in Xinjiang, on November 30 Inner City Press wrote to the Mission of South Africa, as incoming UN Security Council president, with questions including about Western Sahara, Haiti, Yemen and Cameroon.

 Inner City Press specifically asked to be provided the WebEx codes to be able to ask its questions. No answer.

 But when South Africa's self-described bureaucrat Jerry Matjila took questions, his spokesman took them in groups of three -- without protest from the increasingly pathetic UNCA UN press corpse -- allowing Matjila to evade even the questions that were asked.

No one allowed in asked about Cameroon, just the way Guterres wants it. But would South Africa's former Ambassador Kumalo, no bureaucrat at all, have colluded in this Secretary General's censorship of Press. The answer is clearly no. This is shameful.

  This too: during Matjila's "press" conference, the Program of Work was not even on the website of the UNSC. Still Inner City Press, which will report all month about the UNSC with or seemingly without any Matjila or South African bureaucracy access, notes for example "Central Africa" - that would / should be Cameroon - on December 9, DRC on Dec 7, Yemen on Dec 14, South Sudan Dec 15, Afghanistan Dec 17, and Syria Dec 21.

 On Western Sahara, Matjila cravenly praised Guterres' supposed effort on naming a UN envoy, on which Guterres has failed for more than a year. This President is a letdown on Western Sahara.

   Inner City Press live tweeted the Press-less presser, here, and streamed some, here.

When Guterres' spokes- / hatchetman Stephane Dujarric holds his noon briefings this month while refusing all questions from Inner City Press despite an on camera promise. And South Africa and "bureaucrat" Matjila? We'll report.
