United Nations: “Torture, killings and lawlessness in Burundi”.

The people of Burundi continue to endure serious human rights violations including possible crimes against humanity, the majority committed by those with links to the ruling party, UN-appointed independent investigators said on Thursday.

Despite a pledge by President Evariste Ndayishimiye to address the situation in the country after years of violent repression, crimes including arbitrary detention and execution, torture and intimidation, have not stopped, according to the UN Commission of Inquiry on Burundi.

Not only have grave human rights violations continued to occur, but in some respects the situation has deteriorated”, since President Ndayishimiye’s took office in June last year, Commission chair Doudou Diene told journalists in Geneva.

These abuses happened against a backdrop of “multiple armed attacksby opponents of the Government since August 2020, Mr. Diene explained.

The Commission noted that although the level of political violence in Burundi decreased immediately after the 2020 elections, and with the country appearing to be “on the road to normalization”, the human rights situation remains “dire”, according UN News.

Was Haile Selassie the second coming of Jesus Christ?

Haile Selassie is the second coming of Jesus Christ according Rastas because He is the son of King David, according the Bible.

Please read the whole story to understand why Haile Selassie is the second coming of Jesus Christ.

It is often in the Bible (old testament) written that the son of king David will be the promised Messiah (Jesus Christ).

This prophecy came true because Yeshua (the Hebrew name for Jesus, +-2000 years ago), the first coming of Jesus Christ (crusified for the sins of men) is from the offspring of King David.

Joseph, the father of Jesus is a descendant of King David.

But I did a big discovery: Haile Selassie I is born from the root of King David as well!

I will explain you why Haile Selassie is born from the offspring of King David as well according the Bible:

King David was as you maybe know the King of Israel (ca. 1000 BCE).

His second son, King Solomon who succeeded his father as King of Israel had a visit, this is written in the Bible, with the Queen of Ethiopia: the Queen of Sheba.

You have to have some Bible knowledge to know that King Solomon was the second son of King David, but succeeded King David as King of Israel because the first son of King David was killed.

After the meeting between King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba they got a child together: Menelik I.

Menelik I was the first emperor of Ethiopia and descent of King David, ruling in the 10th century BC.

Here it is: Haile Selassie is a descendant of Menelik I, so Haile Selassie is born from the root of king David.

The whole bloodline from King David to Haile Selassie I is written in the Holy Ethiopian book Kebra Nagast.

The Divine bloodline from King Solomon (Solomon is the second son of King David) to Haile Selassie is called the Solomonic Dynasty.

Haile Selassie I was the last King from the Divine bloodline from the root of King David, and the King of Ethiopia was called King of Kings.

Jesus Christ is called King of Kings as well in the Bible, so this can not be a coincidence.

So the whole point is: Haile Selassie I is from the offspring of King David: son of David!

That’s why Haile Selassie I is Jesus Christbecause He is son of King David according the Bible.

Jesus Christ is born twice from the root of King David!

Ras Tafari Makonnen, the original name of Haile Selassie I, was born on the 23th of July 1892 and confirmed death at the 27th of August 1975.

Haile Selassie I was an Ethiopian regent from 1916 to 1930 and emperor from 1930 to 1974 and did great things for mankind!

Haile Selassie I was as King of Ethiopia founding member of the:

  • United Nations (1945).
  • The World Bank (1944).
  • The Organisation of African Unity (1963), (this is today the African Union).
  • The Food and Agriculture Organization (1945) and more…

One of His biggest disciples was Reggae musician Bob Marley, because the word of the prophet Bob Marley reached the whole world.

Bob Marley was a leading figure in the Rastafari Movement, and preached the gospel about Haile Selassie being Christ in his music.

In conclusion: Haile Selassie is the Biblical second coming of Jesus Christ because He is an offspring of King David.

Head of the UN special political mission to Security Council: Sudan continues its transition towards democracy.

Despite setbacks and challenges, Sudan continues its transition towards democracy, the head of the UN special political mission in the country told the UN Security Council on Tuesday.

Volker Perthes, head of the UN Integrated Transition Assistance Mission in Sudan (UNITAMS), briefed on the authorities’ efforts to address violence in the volatile Darfur region and the east, the ongoing economic crisis, and other issues.

Measures have included the launch of an initiative to shape consensus around key objectives such as military and security sector reform, the economy, justice and peace.

There is also growing momentum to move forward on the preparations for constitution-making and elections,” said Mr. Perthes.

“The Government has produced a draft law on the constitution-making process, which will now be subject to public consultations.”  

Debt relief decision

Following continued economic reforms, Sudan is now eligible for debt relief under the Highly Indebted Poor Countries, initiative of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), another positive development.

Mr. Perthes said the move will unlock critical financial resources to strengthen the economy, address poverty and improve social conditions.   

Humanitarians have been advocating for timely and flexible funding, he added, as needs have risen mostly due to the economic crisis and intercommunal conflict

Some 418,000 people have been newly displaced this year following fighting and armed attacks, mainly in Darfur, Kordofan and Blue Nile.

This is about six times as many newly displaced persons as in the same period last year,” he said, while the conflict in neighbouring Ethiopia is also sparking refugee flows into the country, according UN News.

World Health Organization to G20 Health Ministers: “meet COVID-19 pledges”.

The head of the World Health Organization told the G20 Health Ministers in Rome on Sunday “that despite hopes that by now the pandemic would be under control the opposite is true”.

Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus pointed out that “many countries continue to face steep increases in cases and deaths”, despite that more than five billion vaccines have been administered globally.

“But almost 75 per cent of those doses have been administered in just 10 countries”, he explained.

He added that at 2 per centAfrica has the lowest vaccination coverage, this is unacceptable”.

The World Health Organizations global targets are to support every country to vaccinate at least 10 per cent of its population by the end of the month, at least 40 per cent by the end of the year, and 70 per cent by the middle of next year

We can still reach these targets, but only with the commitment and support of G20 countries”, Tedros stated

As the largest producers, consumers and donors of COVID-19 vaccines, he upheld that they hold the key to achieving vaccine equity and ending the pandemic.

“We can never allow a pandemic on this scale to happen again.

 And we can never allow an injustice like this to happen again”, spelled out the WHO chief, according UN News.

President of Guinea, Alpha Condé, detained by soldiers on Sunday.

Members of Guinea‘s armed forces announced a takeover of the government and the closure of the country’s borders.

The army unit announced on Sunday that it had seized power in the West African country of Guinea, ousting 83-year-old president Alpha Condé, and imposing an indefinite curfew.

International organizations including the African Union and the United Nations have condemned the move and called for respect for the rule of law.

I strongly condemn any takeover of the government by force of the gun and call for the immediate release of President Alpha Conde,” the UN secretary-general António Guterres tweeted.

President Alpha Conde was sworn in for a third term last December after a disputed election.

He initially came to power in 2010 in the country’s first democratic election since its independence from France.

Many saw his presidency as an opportunity for a fresh start for the nation.

United Nations marks first International Day for People of African Descent.

The United Nations on Tuesday celebrated the enormous contributions the African diaspora has made in every field of human endeavour, marking the first-ever International Day for People of African Descent.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres called for a greater commitment to advance the promise of equality, justice and dignity for all, in his inaugural message.    

“It is a long overdue recognition of the profound injustices and systemic discrimination that people of African descent have endured for centuries, and continue to confront today,” the UN Secretary-General said. 

“And it is an urgent call to action for everyone, everywhere, to commit to rooting out the evil of racism.” 

More than 200 million people in the Americas alone identify as being of African descent. 

Millions more are located worldwide outside the African continent. 

Whether as descendants of the victims of the transatlantic slave trade, or as more recent migrants, they are among some of the poorest and most marginalized groups, the UN said. 

Last December, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution establishing the International Day

The objective was “to promote greater recognition and respect for the diverse heritage, culture and contribution of people of African descent to the development of societies, and to promote respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms of people of African descent”.

Zambia, Africa’s second-biggest copper producer, saw its economy stagnate when copper prices collapsed around 2011.

Depressed commodity prices and the COVID-19 pandemic have further slowed any economic rebound.

“It is in no doubt what the instruction is to all of us,” he told supporters in Lusaka.

“We will not let you down,” he said.

United Nations official: climate change and hunger in Madagascar.

In the south of Madagascar, known as the Grand Sud, hundreds of thousands of people are suffering from one of the worst droughts in the region in 40 years, the most senior UN official in the country has said, warning that the population is facing a severe humanitarian crisis.

The drought has gone on for longer than expected, and the funds received are insufficient to cover current and future needs.

We must act now: annual crops are a problem that will probably become a new crisis in the next agricultural season.

Resilience is the solution, and there is an urgent need to implement long-term solutions led by the government.

However, right now people need support and humanitarian assistance to get them on their feet and making a living.

The hunger season is coming.

We are in danger of seeing people who have endured the prolonged drought enter the lean season without the means to eat, without money to pay for health services, or to send their children to school, to get clean water, and even to get seeds to plant for the next agricultural season.

If we don’t act soon, we will face a much more severe humanitarian crisis”, according UN News.

UN chief gravely concerned over ‘unspeakable violence’ in Tigray (Ethiopia).

Speaking outside the UN Security Council chamber on Thursday, UN chief António Guterres told journalists that he is gravely concerned about the situation in Ethiopia, particularly the “unspeakable violence” against women and others in Tigray.

The Secretary-General’s remarks came on World Humanitarian Day, and he recognized humanitarians “and the many millions of people they strive to help everyday”. 

He described the misery of the Ethiopian people, and the “hellish” humanitarian conditions they are facing, with millions in need and infrastructure destroyed.

The spread of the conflict, he added, has “ensnared even more people in its horror”.

Now is the time to put an end to the suffering”, stressed Mr. Guterres.

“It is time for all parties to recognize that there is no military solution, and it is vital to preserve the unity and stability of Ethiopia which is critical to the region and beyond”.

To “give peace a chance” in Ethiopia, the Secretary-General appealed for action on three fronts:

  • an immediate end to hostilities;
  • guaranteed, unrestricted humanitarian access, together with the re-establishment of public services in all affected areas;
  • and the creation of conditions that “allow for the start of an Ethiopian-led political dialogue to find a solution for the crisis”.

“Such a dialogue can contribute to addressing the underlying causes of the conflict and ensure Ethiopian voices direct the pathway to peace”, the UN chief explained, calling each of these steps “critical” to a peaceful settlement.

Mr. Guterres assured journalists that the UN continues to have a humanitarian presence in and near Tigray, although there is a lack of full humanitarian access.

The UN chief added that the UN would continue to work together with the African Union and other partners “to support the Ethiopian people on the way to peace and reconciliation”, according UN News.

United Nations: ‘Widespread and systematic’ violence linked to clashes over gold in DR Congo.

Rival armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo are carrying out horrific sexual attacks against women and girls, the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) warned on Friday.

The alert was prompted by what UNHCR has called “widespread and systematic” sexual abuse in Tanganyika province, where thousands of people have been internally displaced this year, often many times.

“Some women and girls have been abducted and used as sex slaves by armed group members”, spokesperson Shabia Mantoo told journalists in Geneva.

‘Horrific violence’

The UNHCR spokesperson explained that in just the past two weeks, humanitarian partners in the Kongolo and Mbulula health zones, have recorded 243 incidents of rape, 48 of which involved minors, in 12 different villages.

Noting that the actual figures are thought to be even higher, as reporting of gender-based violence remains taboo in most communities, she said that amounted to an average of 17 reported attacks per day.

“Our staff have heard horrific testimonies of extreme violence”.

In addition to the huge physical and psychological trauma from being raped, survivors of sexual violence can face stigma and possible exclusion from their families.  

While the UN agency remains committed to helping the survivors, ongoing violence and the need to travel long distances for care at medical centres are hampering its work.

To protect civilians, especially women and girls, UNHCR is calling on the authorities to urgently scale up security in the so-called “triangle of death” – an area bordering several localities between Tanganyika, Maniema, and South Kivu Provinces.

The move would also allow humanitarian access as well as for investigations to be launched and perpetrators to be brought to justice.

“Humanitarian and protection needs are growing and UNHCR is seeking further financial support”, Ms. Mantoo said, informing the journalists that only 36 per cent of the $205 million required for DRC operation has been received, according UN News.
