Ban Ki Moon can afford a new luxury sedan every 36,000 miles - while at USUN (who pays 27% of UN expenses) have to settle for cheep FORD SUVs ?

How does that work? Is the UN a non-for-profit ? How can they overspend the donors?

In Africa, United Nations claims to spend all funds in purchasing "locally made products" to incentive the local economy.

While in New york they settle for German Mercedes or BMWs...? How come? Doesn't NY/US economy needs incentives?
