THE HEAD of the World Health Organisation has been slammed for helping to cover-up China’s failures leading to the international Coronavirus pandemic.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was criticised for defending the behaviour of the Chinese regime and has also been exposed as a communist.
The Ethiopian also has a chequered past in which he was alleged to be part of a violent Ethiopian Terrorist group.
Tedros was part of the violent communist group known as The Tigray People’s Liberation Army, of which had been labelled a terrorist organisation by the United States during the 1990s.
He had been the third most important member of the Politbureau standing committee in the organisation, all the while his group have been accused of ‘systematic discrimination and human rights abuses’ for denying emergency healthcare to the Amhara ethnic group, due to their support for the opposing party.
This was while Tedros was in charge of the country’s Ministry of Health that led to declining birth rates in the ethnic group, all the while TWO million members of that ethnic group were ‘disappeared’ from Ethiopia following population census in what some could describe as Ethnic Cleansing.
He has also been accused of downplaying Cholera epidemics in the country that took place in the late 2000s and early 2010s, a charge of which he denies.
To make matters worse, he was also the Foreign Minister of Ethiopia during some of its more controversial episodes.
While Tedros claimed he was being treated ‘well’ in prison, Tsege discussed upon his 2018 release about his torture and bad treatment.
All the while, general ethnic conflict continued, with Human Rights Watch accusing the Ethiopian government for killing over 400 people and arresting 70,000 others for protesting an attempt to relocate 15,000 people to the Oromia region of the country.
Meanwhile, general political dissidents and journalists were cracked down upon in such a brutal fashion, many of them fled to nearby Yemen, to live in exile.
Such controversy continued to follow Tedros after his appointment at the WHO, whereby he appointed the late Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe as a ‘goodwill ambassador’ to the organisation, a position which was soon taken away after much outcry.
The worldwide figures for the coronavirus stand at 1,254,352 cases, with 68,178 deaths and 257,244 recoveries so far.
