Now after UN Secretary General Guterres bragged again, this time in French, about his talks with Biya’s government, Cameroon forces have burned down the hospital in Kumba in the Anglophone Southwest Region. The UN usually calls attacks on medical facilities a war crime but as we have seen, Biya’s Cameroon is a special case for Guterres, since it chaired the UN Budget Committee. Guterres is entirely silent on Biya’s lock up of Njongwan Emeline, for filming a video of the arrest of dozens of young people in Buea early this week.
As Guterres pledges his support to Biya, he remains locked up. Birds of the same feather flock together. As he left the African Union summit on February 10, Guterres took questions in French and answered this on Cameroon; we are following the situation to which you referred. Yesterday we had a dialogue with the Prime Minister [of Cameroon] and he promised us all this to create conditions of respect for human rights and dialogue so that the situation could normalize. It was the result of our approach with the Prime Minister who was with us last night.”
Guterres has no credibility on Cameroon – he covered up Biya’s slaughter since Cameroon was chair of the UN Budget Committee, took Biya’s golden statue, days and counting and bragged he spoke six times with Biya.
The Secretary-General met Mr. Joseph Dion Ngute, Prime Minister of the Republic of Cameroon on the margins of the African Union Summit. They discussed the latest political developments in the country, including the situation in the North-West and South-West regions. The Secretary-General reiterated the readiness of the United Nations to continue to support Cameroon in its efforts to strengthen peace, democracy and development.
