U.N. peacekeepers kill at least 2 in Congo border shooting

02 Apr 2023  |  AP News
U.N. peacekeepers returning from leave in Uganda opened fire at a border post in Kasindi, a town in Congo's North Kivu province, resulting in at least two deaths and 15 injuries. The incident has escalated tensions in eastern Congo, where protests have demanded the withdrawal of the U.N. force following nearly 20 protest-related fatalities. The U.N. mission head, Bintou Keita, expressed shock and confirmed the arrest of the shooters, with an investigation underway in collaboration with Congolese authorities. The nationality of the peacekeepers has not been disclosed. Congo's government and local civil society members condemned the violence, and the U.N. under-secretary-general for peace operations discussed the situation with Congo's President. The government called for calm and offered condolences to the victims' families.

An absurdity: Experts slam WHO excusal of sex misconduct

06 Mar 2023  |  CP24
Experts appointed by the WHO to investigate sexual misconduct during the Ebola outbreak in Congo criticized the organization's handling of the cases, calling it an 'absurdity.' Despite a zero-tolerance policy, no senior officials have been fired, and victims have not received compensation. The investigation revealed at least 83 perpetrators, including WHO staff, involved in severe abuses. The WHO's internal report and subsequent actions have been deemed insufficient by the experts and victims, who continue to demand accountability and justice.

Experts criticize WHO for dismissing sexual misconduct allegations

27 Feb 2023  |  columbian.com
Experts Aichatou Mindaoudou and Julienne Lusenge, appointed by WHO to investigate sexual abuse allegations during an Ebola outbreak in Congo, criticized the U.N. agency for not firing senior officials involved in the misconduct. They found 83 perpetrators linked to WHO, including cases of rape and forced abortions. A confidential U.N. report did not find WHO managers in violation of policies, which the experts called an absurdity. Victims, including Anifa and Jeanette, expressed their ongoing trauma and lack of compensation or response from WHO. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has claimed a zero-tolerance policy, but no senior staff have been punished. Paula Donovan of Code Blue highlighted the need for an independent investigation into WHO leadership. The WHO has since created a department to prevent misconduct and established a fund to assist survivors.

The WHO claims to have 'zero tolerance' for misconduct and has established a new department to prevent sexual abuse and exploitation.
