Tune in to the “Black Star News Show” on WBAI 99.5 FM Radio also streaming on www.wbai.org Tuesday, February 4 at 3 PM Eastern Standard Time.

Tuesday’s topic focus is “Corruption — The Western and African Elite vs The Masses.”

We will discuss the dynamics behind corruption in Africa following the recent expose of the “Luanda Leaks” dealing with how major Western consultants and accounting firms like Pwc helped Isabela Dos Santos siphon off hundreds of millions of dollars from Angola. We will talk about that expose but broaden the discussion to cover the corrupt elite in other African countries and how they too work with their Western enablers and partners in crime to exploit Africans. We will also discuss the United Nations.

My guest in the studio is Matthew R. Lee the producer and publisher of Inner City Press, an independent media outlet that’s broken many exclusive news stories involving corruption at the United Nations. Matthew has been so effective in covering scandals at the U.N. that his press credentials have been revoked—he will speak about that too.

To ASK QUESTIONS or make comments call us at (212) 209- 2877.

As you know, WBAI is listener-supported and commercial-free—and it’s been that way for 50 years. That’s how we deliver uncensored non-corporate sanitized news and information.

So February is a fund drive month at WBAI. I invite listeners to call in at (516) 620-3602 and make a pledge to support WBAI. You can become a WBAI “Buddy” in the name of my show “Black Star News Show” during my program tomorrow from 3PM to 4PM.

You can also go to give2wbai.org or texting 41444 and also pledge in the name of “Black Star News Show.”

I will spend some time as part of the pledge drive during Tuesday’s show reading some excerpts from the second edition of my book “The Hearts of Darkness, How White Writers Created the Racist Image of Africa” (Black Star Books 2016) and offer a copy of the book to anyone who becomes a WBAI “Buddy.”
