Prince Harry’s Charity Faces Horrific Allegations

Prince Harry’s African conservation charity is facing horrific allegations.

An investigation led by the African Parks revealed rangers working at Prince Harry’s African conservation charity have been accused of rape and torture.

In the investigation report, it was revealed rangers working at parks in the Republic of the Congo were using torture techniques such as tieing indigenous people’s hands and feet together and proceeding to beat them, whereas others were raped.

Prince Harry currently sits as a board member of African Parks, and many are calling for him to step down from teh organization.

Here’s what Newsweek reported:

Prince Harry’s African conservation charity faces fresh torture allegations after a ranger admitted tying up suspects and beating them, using a horrific torture technique called “the swing.”

African Parks launched an investigation over allegations of rape and abuse by rangers, which became public for the first time in January.

Former Zambian African Parks ranger Foster Kalunga detailed the torture method he called kampelwa, or “swing”, in extracts quoted in U.K. newspaper The Times.

“Sometimes we use kampelwa,” said Kalunga, a ranger in Liuwa Plain national park for five years until 2022. “Then you tie someone up, hands and feet tied together, behind his back, and you hang him on a stick between two branches.

Per The Guardian:

A wildlife charity that has the Duke of Sussex as a board member is investigating allegations of rape and torture by its guards in the Republic of the Congo.

African Parks, which manages 22 national parks and protected areas across 12 countries, said the investigation was its “highest priority” and encouraged anyone with knowledge of any abuse to contact it.

The Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry, is listed as a board member of the non-profit organisation after serving as the organisation’s president for six years.

Guards managed and paid by the charity had engaged in the beating, rape and torture of Indigenous people in the rainforests of the Republic of the Congo, according to allegations first reported by the Mail on Sunday.
