What do you do when the people you invited into your house start to misbehave? Anyone would say chase them out. But when it comes to the UN ...
The reports that some UN peace keeping soldiers in Juba had been abusing children as young as 12 years in Juba is disturbing. What is wrong with these peace keepers? Are they so over sexed that they go around looking for children?
The issue is not new. There have been accusations in Congo and Sierre Leone of UN peace keepers behaving like that. All these are complicating the UN mission in Sudan.
With such reports coming out, who will blame Sudan for refusing UN peace keepers from coming to Darfur? Peace Keepers who not only try to keep peace but also abuse and rape children. It is not enough to just investigate the issues. It may take years to gather evidence and prosecute the perpetrators of such heinous crimes.
Th UN should take this seriously. It will not be long before the tight is turn against these peace keepers by the locals.
I will say chase them...
UPDATE: . Four UN peace keepers removed
The UN has removed four peace keepers from South Sudan after the abuse.
