UNFPA Kanem Lavished Public Funds on Son Guterres Covers Sexual Exploitation No Answer

by Matthew Russell Lee

UN GATE, June 27 – How corrupt is the UN under Antonio Guterres? Well, Inner City Press has repeatedly reported on UNFPA's Natalia Kanem and her misuse of taxpayers' funds for her son - and now, sexual abuse promoted by UNFPA. From sources to Inner City Press, which Guterres's spokespeople Stephane Dujarric and Melissa Fleming refuse to answer:

Hello Inner City Press, Matthew Russell Lee, The information below and the evidence attached, about Natalia Kanem, UNFPA Executive Director, has been brought to the attention of OIOS but as usual they might try to look the other way, as if it doesn’t matter. So, this must be brought to the attention of the public.

We have information for you in relation to Case number OIOS/0519/24. Further to the many stories now circulating about the conflict of interest by Natalia Kanem in her misuse of power and role as Executive Director of UNFPA. We have proof from whistle blowers about her son, Mandela Gregoire. We get information showing that UN world money was used to pay for Mandela's vacation trip in December 2019, for the ‘Year of Return' celebrations in Ghana. It look like normal thing, and no one should normally criticize someone for vacation. But the problem is the vacation was paid by UN money.

 We have reliable information saying his travel expenses, hotel, and chauffeur were paid by UNFPA funds, because of his mother's orders. It is not clear why or how this happened, because he is not staff and he did not work for the organization. We have evidence, like the hotel invoice...

 More worrying is a young female intern from the UNFPA office in Ghana, who stay with him during his visit, maybe for sexual reasons, because he is the ED's son. Surveillance video from the hotel proves this fact. The power between a young intern and the ED's son is bad for possible sexual exploitation.

 Also, information we have shows that Mandela was introduced to the country office by Dr. Kanem herself, which goes against her promise to fight sexual exploitation and harassment. In the case, she aid and abet it
