A top American preacher, Rev Elizabeth Geitz, a nonprofit entrepreneur, Episcopal priest, and award-winning author of six books has condemned and attacked CNN over what she calls covering the inaction of the United Nations over atrocities committed in Southern Cameroons.
In a Tweet, Monday April 1, 2019, the Evangelist attacked Christopher Charles Cuomo, an American television journalist who currently works at CNN, where he presents Cuomo Prime Time, a regular weeknight CNN show for covering up the “shameful inaction of the UN and Antonio Guterres”.
The Founder and CEO of Good Shepherd Sustainable Learning Foundation indicated in her Tweet that Christopher Charles Cuomo was covering up what she describes as Genocide in the Anglophone Region of Cameroon by the Francophone government.
Going forward, she accused the regime of President Paul Biya saying; “daily rampant killings, burning of villages, and burning of people alive is evil and tragic.”
Many have hailed her comment against CNN that has completely ignored a very vital armed conflict in the two English-speaking parts of Cameroon, claiming lives in thousands and next to the 1994 Rwandan Genocide and 1941 Holocaust.
An armed conflict is ongoing in the two English-speaking regions of Cameroon in which majority of its residents want a new state called Ambazonia. Armed groups have emerged, battling regular Cameroon military.
Angered by this, the military has been pouring its frustration on the local population, killing many unarmed civilians, torching whole villages and attacking hospitals and churches.
Thousands have been killed, hundreds burnt alive in their homes, many others illegally detained with over more than two million living as refugees in Nigeria and other parts of the world.
According to a brief biography, Rev Elizabeth is an award-winning writer focused on spirituality and justice issues with writings that speak to people of passion who want to make a difference in the world.
Elizabeth’s latest book, I Am That Child: Changing Hearts and Changing the World, chronicles her odyssey to the Good Shepherd Home in Cameroon, West Africa and was ranked #1 on Amazon in African Studies.
Her books have been hailed by NY Times bestselling authors Desmond Tutu, John Berendt, and Helen Prejean. Elizabeth works full time on the mission of Good Shepherd SLF and serves as Seasonal Priest Assoc at Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida; and at Calvary Church in Summit, NJ.
She is the former Canon for Ministry Development and Deployment in the Diocese of New Jersey and a CREDO Spirituality Faculty member. Canon Geitz holds a BS from Vanderbilt University, an MDiv from The General Theological Seminary, and an MAT from the University of South Carolina, according to her foundation.
