Kenyan UN Ambassador Reports Constituents To FBI Over Anti-Abortion Mails, Faces Recall
Says they are harassing her over abortion law As Kenyan group fights for the release of Leah Sharibu
The ambassador representing Kenya at the United Nations, Ambassador Koki Muli Grignon has reported her constituents to the Federal Investigation Bureau [FBI] after a petition was sent her asking her not to support abortion laws.
According to her interviews with the media, Ambassador Grignon wants the messages to be investigated as, according to her they are harassing her.
Ambassador Koki received messages signed by different people asking her to defend life and family at the United Nations, but she turned around and reported them to FBI.
According to reports, she would not want to receive messages from her constituents and has termed them as “harassment” instead .
Over 1,000 Kenyans sent messages to Her Excellency during the Commission on the Status of Women asking her to stand for life and against comprehensive sexuality education which is a major concern in Kenya, Africa and the world as a whole.
Reacting, a Kenyan-based Non-Governmental Organisation [NGO], CitizenGo lambasting the ambassador, asked:
“If the messages were pro-abortion , would she react in such a manner where she calls for deregistration of pro-life groups and their ban from United Nations?”
In a private mail to ElombahNews, CitizenGo lamented:
“When the president of Kenya appoints government officials, we expect the officials to listen and represent all Kenyans without fear or favour .
“Ambassador Koki Muli who serves as the deputy permanent representative at the Kenyan Mission in the United Nations has failed in her role to represent ALL Kenyans especially with her current controversial stance against pro-life groups .
“During every year’s Commission on the Status of Women at the United Nations in New York, Kenyans and Citizens from all over the globe want to send a message to their capitals and missions urging them to defend the family, women and life.
“Kenyans are pro-life and pro-family.”
The messages sent to her by her constituents read as follows:-
From: (The Name of the Petition Signer)
Subject: Oppose harmful language in CSW report
Abortion, sexual orientation and gender identity, and comprehensive sexuality education are controversial topics among most United Nations member states. They are not agreed-upon conclusions. Including this language in international documents is culturally insensitive and impedes the local sovereignty of United Nations member states. To better help women and girls globally, please remove any mention of Sexual and Reproductive Health, sexual orientation and gender identity, and Comprehensive Sexuality Education from the final report generated at the sixty-third Commission on the Status of Women. Instead, spend your time and resources focusing on initiatives that promote clean water, eradicating hunger and poverty, and maternal health. Women and girls all over the world will thank you!
CitizenGo has, therefore, embarked on moves to recall Ambassador Muli from the United Nations.
The NGO has thus launched an online petition seeking for her recall immediately.
Citing reasons for its actions, CitizenGo stated:
“The African group has always remained firm about life, family and against comprehensive sexuality education, but many super powers would want Africa to support their culture of death and push for homosexuality, in some instances member states have been coerced to accepting the agenda or loose financial aid.”
In yet another development, CitizenGo has lamented the continued stay of young Leah Sharibu in the camp of Boko Haram terrorists since 2018.
In a short memo signed by Ann Kioko on behalf of the entire CitizenGO team and addressed to ElombahNews, the NGO stated:
“It is yet another birthday week for young Leah Sharibu who has been in Boko Haram insurgents captivity since early 2018.
“Leah Sharibu was abducted together with other school girls in Dapchi Nigeria in what has become a custom in North Eastern Nigeria where Christians are singled out and persecuted for their faith.
“This has since extended to many major areas in the Federal Republic of Nigeria where many Christians have been massacred and others abducted by the insurgents.
“We invite you to pray for Leah even as she suffers for standing firm for Jesus Christ.
“Pray also for her mother and family who CitizenGO has been able to meet in our last year’s trip to Dapchi, Nigeria.
“We pray that Leah doesn’t have to celebrate any other birthday in captivity and for her safety!”
The CitizenGo team had been at the forefront in the fight for the release of Leah Sharibu.
