United Nations, Secretary General António Guterres has dismissed complaints and allegations raised against Janet Rogan in Zambia.
United Nations has dismissed allegations against UN Zambia’s Resident Coordinator, Janet Rogan.
Fahran Haw, Spokesperson for the United Nations Secretary General says the allegations against Janet were not founded, ill-informed and were misdirected.
He said Janet Rogan will continue to lead the United Nations team in Zambia.
The UN also dismissed allegations that Rogan withheld an election outcome report and the audit of the voters role.
“In response to questions about allegations against the UN Resident Coordinator in Zambia, Janet Rogan, the Spokesman emphasized that the UN Country Team and the Resident Coordinator will continue to be dedicated and impartial partners of the Zambian people”.
“One allegation has been that the Resident Coordinator had held back on the issuance of the so-called Conflict Structure Vulnerabilities report.”
“That document is a report of the Election Commission of Zambia, so the Resident Coordinator is not in a position to withhold it.There were also allegations that UNDP contract consultants audited the voters’ roll.”
“These allegations were raised, and refuted, previously. In fact, the consultants in question were hired by the Electoral Commission of Zambia, and not by UNDP.”
