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.

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia, January 15, 2018 – Joint statement of the African Union and the United Nations on the situation in South Sudan:

The Chairperson of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat, and the Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, strongly condemn the recent violations of the 21 December 2017 Agreement on Cessation of Hostilities, Protection of Civilians and Humanitarian Access in South Sudan.

They call on all South Sudanese fighting parties to immediately cease all hostilities, desist from undertaking any further military operations, and uphold their commitments to the 21 December 2017 Agreement. They further call on the parties to uphold their primary responsibility to protect civilians, adhere to international human rights and humanitarian law and ensure safe and unhindered humanitarian access.

The Chairperson of the African Union Commission and the Secretary-General of the United Nations underscore the determination of the international and regional community to ensure that the parties abide by their obligations and responsibilities. They affirm their intent to support the imposition of consequences, consistent with the African Union Peace and Security Council Communiqué of 20 September 2017, should the parties continue to violate their own Agreement.

They express their full support for the second phase of the High-Level Revitalization Forum (HLRF) under the leadership of the Inter-Governmental Authority on Development (IGAD). They call on the parties to participate in the Forum in good faith and with a view towards reaching a compromise and bringing South Sudan back to the path of sustainable peace.

The Chairperson of the African Union Commission and the Secretary-General of the United Nations reaffirm their belief that there can only be a political solution to the conflict in South Sudan, and the parties must demonstrate the political will to negotiate a permanent ceasefire and update the Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (ARCISS) in order to end the appalling suffering inflicted on the South Sudanese population.
