UNHCR boss praises Uganda on refugees’ response

The visiting director of the Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework at UNHCR in Geneva, Daniel Endres described Uganda as a model for the world in the area of refugee management.

“Uganda is a world leader in refugee policy and the world has its attention on the country with great admiration. Our next step is to maximize that good work,” Endres stated.

Endres passed on the commendation during a joint press briefing at the Office of the Prime Minister in Kampala on Friday.

Uganda is now home to about 1.4 million refugees, more than half of them from South Sudan. It also ranks third globally after Turkey and Pakistan among countries hosting the largest number of refugees.

The minister for relief, disaster preparedness and refugees, Eng Hillary Onek said the country would keep its doors open to refugees in spite of growing difficulties in providing for them.

Globally, Uganda is considered a good example of refugee management. The country’s refugee law grants them rights to documentation, social services, freedom of movement, work or business.

The National Development Plan II provides for specific interventions to improve their livelihood and create an enabling environment for refugees to live in safety, dignity and harmony.

A 2015 World Bank assessment found over 78% of respondents in refugee settlements were engaged in agriculture.

They are also granted access to all the social services enjoyed by their host communities.

In 2016, the Government also enacted a legal and policy framework that allows refugees to stay in urban centres if they so wish, thus facilitating the enjoyment of their human rights.

Subject: UNHCR boss praises Uganda on refugees’ response, By New Vision, Dec 2, 2017

Commentary, 2 Dec 2017
The UN System is well known for creating jobs and coming out with impressive verbiage titles. Take this one as an example>>> “Comprehensive Refugee Response Framework at UNHCR” The UNHCR itself is also long. It is irrefutable fact that the UN was never meant for the down trodden undeveloped countries of the Globe — especially Africa. Africa is a source of natural wealth to be exploited for the benefit of the advanced countries. The African people were not of any concern to the exploiters. They were only tolerated as daily labourers (putting it magnanimously). The real word is SLAVERY.

Let us go to Uganda — the private territory of Museveni & Family. Museveni accepted the role of mediator, or accomplice or good-doer for his own benefit, which has nothing to do with the Ugandan people. Please not this QUOTE: “Uganda is a world leader in refugee policy and the world has its attention on the country with great admiration. Our next step is to maximize that good work,” UNQUOTE

“world leader in refugee policy” !!!!! Amazing. It is a distinct impression that Africa will be depository of hungry refugees for ever — and permanent source of employment and enjoyment for the UN.

From the above we learn several lessons: a) Museveni is using the World Body to enrich himself in many ways; b) The UN is using Museveni as depository of Refugees for Life; c) the Refugee system as source of UN employment will be maximized [NOT REDUCED]; and finally d) Africans will remain as destitute for ever and the exploitation of Africa will continue unhindered.

Let us continue: QUOTE “Uganda is now home to about 1.4 million refugees, more than half of them from South Sudan.” UNQUOTE. Note that South Sudan was at war for over thirty years, supposedly to liberate itself from Sudan. It wound up NOT even having an indigenous NAME for itself! It is a miserable State. So are the remaining fifty States or so of the African Continent — falling from European colonialism to indigenous cruel and cheap Masters.

In any case, the Refugees of Africa will keep on growing for the benefit (employment) of the UN System and local tyrants for their selfish appetite. THERE IS NO END TO IT.
