President Museveni Accuses UN of Terrorism Conservation in Africa
In a recent address to the Ugandan people, President Museveni has boldly asserted that terrorism in Africa is either created or conserved by global actors attempting to assume the role of "global policemen." In a letter addressed to the Ugandan populace, whom he affectionately calls "Bazzukulu" or grandchildren, the President specifically pointed to the United Nations (UN) and its undemocratic structures, such as the Security Council, as culprits in fostering terrorism on the continent.
The President highlighted the ongoing terrorism conservation project in Eastern Congo, spanning two decades, which he directly attributed to the UN. According to Museveni, the UN, controlled by certain global actors, has perpetuated chaos in the region through its undemocratic structures. He criticized the Security Council for its role in sustaining instability in Eastern Congo.
Museveni expanded his critique to include other African nations, citing turmoil in Libya, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, and Chad, which he also laid at the feet of the UN's structures.
"Part of the terrorism in Africa is either created or conserved by some of the actors that try to be global policemen. The chaos in Libya and the surrounding countries of the Sahel (Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, Chad, etc.) was caused by some of these actors," he stated in the issued statement.
The President expressed incredulity at the UN's ability to coexist with those responsible for violence and bloodshed in Eastern Congo for the past two decades. He accused the organization of creating a free space for various groups to gather, train, steal resources from Congo, and perpetrate violence against the Congolese and, occasionally, Ugandans.
"It is amazing how the UN can supervise and coexist with killers of Congolese and Ugandans in eastern Congo for the last 20 years, and they are not bothered at all. They have created free space for all sorts of empty-headed pigs to gather, train, steal resources of Congo, kill Congolese and, once in a while, kill Ugandans, as well as undermining the economic future of the people of the Great Lakes," President Museveni declared.
This is not the first time President Museveni has pointed fingers at international entities for conflicts in the region. In 2018, during the Global Peace Leadership Conference in Munyonyo, he specifically singled out the United Nations and the USA for their roles in the ongoing conflicts in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The accusations raise questions about the role of international bodies in addressing conflicts and promoting peace in Africa.
