Cote d'Ivoire crisis: ONUCI condemns propaganda of Gbagbo's camp

Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire (PANA) - The United Nations Operation in Cote d’Ivoire (ONUCI) Saturday condemned the new style propaganda embarked upon by the outgoing President Laurent Gbagbo's supporters, describing it as a pack of lies.

In a communique published in Abidjan, ONUCI described as "untruths, allegations that it killed a policeman in Daloa, transported, equipped and accommodated non-UN troops or mounted a television for the side of the acclaimed president-elect Alassane Ouattara."

According to the UN mission, all these allegations are wicked and they only have one objective of creating among the supporters of Gbagbo, a feeling of hatred and hostility, to prevent ONUCI from carrying out its mandate, especially the protection of the civilian population.

The ONUCI reiterated its strict military impartiality, as well as its determination to prosecute its peace mission to a logical conclusion and help Cote d’Ivoire to find a peaceful solution to the post-electoral crisis, the communique noted.

On Friday, the leader of the Patriotic Youth, Charles Blé Goudé charged his supporters to block the movement of ONUCI everywhere in Cote d'Ivoire.
