Opinion: UNICEF is a lost cause, giving Kenyatta an honorary title suggesting him to promote “Youth Empowerment!”

On UNICEF Main-Page this is cataloged under What We Do and then Work: “UNICEF works in 190 countries and territories to save children’s lives, to defend their rights, and to help them fulfil their potential. And we never give up. UNICEF for every child” (UNICEF.Org). Therefore, reading this is scratching my eyes and wonder what in the world is happening? How come UNICEF and Uhuru Kenyatta wants to connect?

Is UNICEF out of their mind. Here is the official press release from the Presidents own web page:

NAIROBI, 19 January 2018 (PSCU) – President Uhuru Kenyatta has accepted a UN agency’s request to be the global champion for youth empowerment. United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director Henrietta Fore said the President’s role will include advocating promotion of universal healthcare, education and nutrition. Making the request when she paid a courtesy call on President Kenyatta today at State House, Nairobi, Ms Fore assured the country of support in achieving universal healthcare” (PSCU, 2018).

I have to ask, what is up with UNICEF? Are you really working for kids and their best potential? Do you know anything about Uhuru Kenyatta and his Jubilee Alliance Party? Have you followed his track-record and his history before giving him the title and honorary position yesterday? Part of me don’t think so.

Like in August 2017 after the first Presidential Election, the Police hammered at the Mathare slums in Nairobi, where they killed a young girl. In October 2017, the Police clobbered a mother and its 6 months year old Samantha Pendo to death in Kisumu. Clearly, this man is leaving behind many kids. Something the UNICEF should be concerned about. That he has killed kids and their parents in his efforts to stay in power. That is the sort of man, the UNICEF organization has honored yesterday. Is that the current values of the UN Organization called UNICEF is all about?

We know that Kenyatta cheats, uses the military and police to stay in power. He uses all tricks, hires foreign companies to make his propaganda, he hires companies to forge the validity of the elections, both in tenders of printing ballots, BVR Machines and whatnot that the government needs. Therefore, that UNICEF will be used by a man like Kenyatta is worrying.

That Executive Director Fore is blind or naive, that is all up to her. She has already shown that the kids killed for power doesn’t matter for her. Because they don’t matter to Kenyatta. He has celebrated and honored the men and woman who took weapons against their own. To make sure he could rule a second term at any cost. Kenyatta doesn’t care, he hasn’t and he has threaten people easily, but never negotiated or open his door to them.

Neither has he cared about the youth unemployment, Kenyatta has been careful to hustle and bustle with the cartels. Jubilee is cronyism and corruption on steroids. Still, that doesn’t matter to UNICEF. They want his stamp on their organization and his promises. Well, Kenyatta has promised a lot, but he hasn’t delivered.

Why did you do this UNICEF? Why? What went through your mind? Are you trying to do what World Health Organization did to Mugabe in 2017? Is that your goal and ambition? You better make some random celebrity or pop singer ambassadors, not politicians and presidents like this. That will not be scrutinized like this. It will be, okay, they need some goodwill. So they picked the most popular singer and actor of year. Pick Jason Statham or Camila Cabello. Someone that doesn’t create a fuzz and has actually done damage in the field your trying to get goodwill out of. You don’t give credit to weapon producers for generating peace are you? That is how it looks? The ones that actually producing arms and ammunition is the ones getting the highest reward. So the Nobel Peace Prize is in 2018 going to Lockheed Martin. I am kidding about that, but that is how it looks! Peace.

Did Ethiopia officially recognize Somaliland today?

Today, we can question if the Ethiopian People’s Democratic Revolutionary Front (EPDRF) and Prime Minister Hailamariam Desalegn has officially recognized Somaliland as their own state. We I do that, is because of the official visit of Somaliland in Addis Ababa and the way the Ethiopian state has addressed it. Seemingly, like Somaliland is an equal partner. Clearly the leadership and government in Mogadishu must be horrified today. If President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed Faramaajo and also Prime Minister Hassan Ali Khaire, who both should be shocked by this.

This was the first statement the Ministry of Foreign Affairs put out today, 16.01.2018.

Ethiopia, welcome the President of Somaliland (Second statement):

Foreign Minister Dr. Workneh Gebeyehu today (16 January 2018) welcomed the President of Somaliland HE Musa Bihi Abdi.. The President has expressed his gratitude for the warm welcome accorded to him by Dr. Workneh. Upon welcoming the President, Dr. Workneh has expressed his appreciation for the cooperative role the Somaliland plays in the maintenance of peace and stability in its adjacent regions. Dr. Workneh also further added that, Ethiopia and Somaliland have strong cooperative ties in the economic sphere” (Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 2018).

We can wonder if the Ethiopian Government would do the same favor for Puntland, Galmuudug, South-West State or Jubaland. Since they have done this now for Somaliland. The ones asking for independence from the federation has shown partner to vouch for them. This in the midst that the Central Government has initiated changes in State Governments all around the Federation.

Will the Ethiopians recognize Puntland and Galmuudug as separate entities as well and give all sorts of diplomatic ties with them outside of the Federal Government in Mogadishu. What will President Faramaajo and PM Khaire think of this and the visit of President Musa Bihi Abdi in Ethiopia.

We can wonder if this is a sign or token of playful ignorance from Addis. We can questions the motives for this and if they have done this on purpose. If it is to get more out the relationship with Mogadishu or not. Time will tell. Peace.
