#UNStopFailingTigray – October 8th, 2021 – October 08, 2021

#UNStopFailingTigray Pt. 1

1. It is clear that @MaureenAAchieng, @CNSozi & @ChiwaraLetty are not fit to represent the interest of women, especially those suffering from sexual violence. The @UN must intervene & replace them before matters get worse. @unwomenchief #UNStopFailingTigray https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJKvslfV3lU

2. .@MaureenAAchieng had a scandalous discussion about her disinterest in Tigray & today she’s conducting damage control via @UNEthiopia. A person with such contempt for a whole region is not fit to lead. @UN must replace her. @USAmbUN #UNStopFailingTigrayhttps://twitter.com/UNEthiopia/status/1446145828620537859

3. As long as @CNSozi, @ChiwaraLetty & @MaureenAAchieng are members of the @UN, the org’s reputation will always be at stake.These women have been caught having malicious discussions that are only fueling #TigrayGenocide. #UNStopFailingTigray! @UNGenevahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJKvslfV3lU

4. #TigrayGenocide is being fueled by members of the @UN. Maureen Achieng, Letty Chiwara & Catherine Sozi do not have a genuine interest in serving rape survivors in Tigray. Replace them!@EU_Commission @NorwayUN @SwedenUN @unwomenchief #UNStopFailingTigrayhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJKvslfV3lU

5. Women of the @UN mocked Tigrayan rape survivors in a conversation behind closed doors. How can the @UN let deranged women such as @CNSozi, @ChiwaraLetty & @MaureenAAchieng hold such positions? They must go!@UN_Women @endrapeinwar #UNStopFailingTigrayhttps://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-58167818

6. Rape & sexual violence have been used as a weapon of war to inflict lasting physical & psychological damage on the women of Tigray. And while @UNEthiopia knows this, they still fail survivors. #UNStopFailingTigray @EU_Commission @UNGeneva @WHO @UNOCHAhttps://www.amnesty.org/en/latest/news/2021/08/ethiopia-troops-and-militia-rape-abduct-women-and-girls-in-tigray-conflict-new-report/

7. The UN OIOS must investigate @MaureenAAchieng for breaching the standards of integrity expected of @UN staff! Maureen spoke with a propagator of anti-Tigrayan hate speech, and her remarks were hateful, conspiratorial & lacked impartiality. #UNStopFailingTigray @UNFPA

8. Does @PaulKagame know that @MaureenAAchieng of @UNEthiopia vilified Tigrayan migrants stranded in Saudi Arabia & spewed harmful conspiracy theories that Tigrayans wanted refuge in Rwanda since “guerrilla movements start from Rwanda”? #UNStopFailingTigrayhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIoRMFkDHZQ

#UNStopFailingTigray Pt. 2

1. After mocking the pain of Tigrayans, @MaureenAAchieng proclaimed with disdain that she’d never go back to “that region”, referring to Tigray. To control the fallout, @UNEthiopia sent her to Tigray. It’s performative & not enough! @UN #UNStopFailingTigray https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIoRMFkDHZQ

2. .@unwomenethiopia’s @ChiwaraLetty can be heard dismissing reports of weaponized rape in Tigray as “media hype.” How can she be trusted to deliver accountability & justice for thousands of Tigrayan survivors? #UNStopFailingTigray @MarisePayne @niinisto https://omnatigray.org/omna-tigray-leaked-audio-recording-of-tigray-meeting-on-weaponized-sgbv-held-by-the-ethiopian-country-offices-of-various-un-agencies/

3. In Tigray, weaponized rape has been inflicted on tens of thousands, who are cut off from medical care due to the ongoing siege. @UN must ACT NOW to support all survivors. @UN_Women @UNwomenWatch @antonioguterres#UNStopFailingTigray #TigrayGenocidehttps://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/10/06/why-us-should-call-famine-violence-tigray-genocide/

4. .@UNmigration must IMMEDIATELY evaluate the dangerous words of its @IOMEthiopia Chief of Mission @MaureenAAchieng who describes groups as “dirty & vicious.” There must be no place for such hateful rhetoric at a @UN agency. @UN_HRC #UNStopFailingTigray https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIoRMFkDHZQ

5. .@IOMEthiopia’s @MaureenAAchieng shows a clear bias against Tigrayans, demonstrated by her lack of concern for Tigrayans in Saudi prisons. @UNmigration & @UN agencies must step up to ensure protection of Tigrayan migrants & refugees! #UNStopFailingTigray https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIoRMFkDHZQ

6. There is NO PLACE for people like @MaureenAAchieng, @CNSozi, @ChiwaraLetty, who deny and downplay weaponized rape at the @UN. A swift response is required from all stakeholders. @FinlandUN @AustraliaUN @EU_Commission @hickspeggy #UNStopFailingTigray https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJKvslfV3lU

7. By putting @MaureenAAchieng & @ChiwaraLetty in charge of the safety of rape survivors, @UN & @UN_Women are putting thousands of those lives at risk. Survivors must be believed & supported, not gaslit! #UNStopFailingTigray @jantoresanner @AnnikaSaarikkohttps://edition.cnn.com/2021/08/12/africa/tigray-ethiopia-sexual-violence-amnesty-report-intl/index.html

8. In a leaked audio, @MaureenAAchieng allows an outsider to secretly record her employee & subordinate, without his knowledge or consent. This is a flagrant abuse of power and must be investigated by @IOMEthiopia and @UNmigration. @UN#UNStopFailingTigrayhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIoRMFkDHZQ

9. Leaked audio makes it clear that @MaureenAAchieng, @ChiwaraLetty, & @CNSozi are unfit to advocate & serve survivors of SGBV + those in famine. Their intent to undermine scale up & streamlining of humanitarian operations must be condemned. #UNStopFailingTigray @antonioguterres

#UNStopFailingTigray Pt. 3

1. Survivors need:

♦️to be heard

♦️to be believed

♦️to be supported

@UNEthiopia staff, incl. @ChiwaraLetty can be heard here downplaying & denying the extent of survivors’ suffering. @UNHumanRights @ECA_OFFICIAL @unwomenchief #UNStopFailingTigray https://omnatigray.org/omna-tigray-leaked-audio-recording-of-tigray-meeting-on-weaponized-sgbv-held-by-the-ethiopian-country-off

2. In a leaked audio, @MaureenAAchieng says she “wants to stay out of” an issue concerning Tigrayans.If she isn’t willing to do her job, why is she still a member of @IOMEthiopia? @UNmigration must take IMMEDIATE action! #UNStopFailingTigray @regner_asa https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIoRMFkDHZQ

3. In her eagerness to question the suffering of millions of Tigrayans in need of help, @MaureenAAchieng implicates several @UN & @UNMigration agencies. She is a danger to the people she serves, her colleagues & subordinates! #UNStopFailingTigray @StateDepthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIoRMFkDHZQ

4. Leaving people like @MaureenAAchieng @CNSozi & @ChiwaraLetty in charge of the humanitarian response in Tigray endangers the lives of millions, given their demonstrated bias against Tigrayans. @UN & @UNMigration must act now! #UNStopFailingTigray @JapanMissionUN @unwomenafrica

5. “I can never go back to that region,” said @MaureenAAchieng. If she is unwilling to serve those suffering in Tigray, why is she Chief at @IOMEthiopia? @UN & @UNMigration must take action NOW! #UNStopFailingTigray @regner_asa @SimaBahous@abhatiaunwomenhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIoRMFkDHZQ

6. The @UN values integrity and impartiality in its conduct. @MaureenAAchieng describing groups as “vicious and dirty” violates the UN’s codes of conduct and tarnishes the entire organization. @UNDPPA @AmbMKimani @mbachelet @TimmermansEU #UNStopFailingTigrayhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIoRMFkDHZQ

7. .@unwomenethiopia, @IOMEthiopia & @UNEthiopia spread serious violations of @UN’s respective agencies’ core values. Their vitriol against Tigray as it faces famine, mass arrest & weaponized rape must be investigated! #UNStopFailingTigray @UNReliefChiefhttps://www.washingtonpost.com/world/2021/09/30/ethiopia-tigray-united-nations-famine/

8. In a leaked audio, @MaureenAAchieng mocks Tigrayans languishing in Saudi prisons and calls Tigrayans advocating for their safe repatriation “dirty & vicious.” Survivors must be protected, not villainized! #StopFailingTigray @UNmigration @UNHumanRights https://youtu.be/VIoRMFkDHZQ

9. Per @MaureenAAchieng, the @UNEthiopia twitter account is being used by @CNSozi to undermine reports from @UN and reflect the views of the individuals in Addis. Ethiopian gov’t has weaponized such statements to restrict aid + prolong #TigrayFamine. @USAID https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rExWe7l42UI

#UNStopFailingTigray Pt. 4

1. In a four-page memo signed by @ASteiner and sent to @antonioguterres, the @UNDP failed Tigray by justifying Ethiopia’s position in the war while Tigrayans faced mass atrocities at the hands of Ethiopian, Eritrean, & Amhara forces. #UNStopFailingTigray https://foreignpolicy.com/2021/03/09/ethiopia-tigray-conflict-united-nations-undp-memo-atrocities-ethnic-cleansing-allegations/

2. In a confidential memo, the @UNDP justified the collective punishment of Tigrayans & set the tone for @UN’s disastrous policy regarding Tigray. Tigrayans deserve accountability, justice, & access to resources and humanitarian aid. #UNStopFailingTigray https://foreignpolicy.com/2021/03/09/ethiopia-tigray-conflict-united-nations-undp-memo-atrocities-ethnic-cleansing-allegations/

3. A @UNDP memo “urges donor states to focus more on development & humanitarian goals & less on reprimanding the Ethiopian government over its human rights record & especially the excesses committed during the conflict.“ #UNStopFailingTigray #TigrayGenocide https://foreignpolicy.com/2021/03/09/ethiopia-tigray-conflict-united-nations-undp-memo-atrocities-ethnic-cleansing-allegations/

4. A memo by @ASteiner and @ahunnaeziakonwa “provides a largely sympathetic account of Ethiopia’s role in the crisis, echoing government talking points”. @UNDP must hold the Ethiopian Gov’t, a belligerent to the conflict, accountable. #UNStopFailingTigray https://foreignpolicy.com/2021/03/09/ethiopia-tigray-conflict-united-nations-undp-memo-atrocities-ethnic-cleansing-allegations/

5. Instead of advocating to protect Tigrayans from the Ethiopian gov’t & its forces who tortured, raped, killed + bombed Tigrayans, @ahunnaeziakonwa & @ASteiner justified the actions of the Ethiopian gov’t, a belligerent to the conflict. #UNStopFailingTigray https://foreignpolicy.com/2021/03/09/ethiopia-tigray-conflict-united-nations-undp-memo-atrocities-ethnic-cleansing-allegations/
