President Robert Mugabe Removed As WHO Ambassador 2 Days After His Apppointment

The World Health Organization has revoked the appointment of Zimbabwe's Robert Mugabe as a goodwill ambassador following a widespread outcry.


WHO head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a statement.

 "Over the last few days, I have reflected on my appointment of H.E. President Robert Mugabe as WHO Goodwill Ambassador for Noncommunicable Diseases in Africa. As a result I have decided to rescind the appointment.


I have listened carefully to all who have expressed their concerns, and heard the different issues that they have raised. I have also consulted with the Government of Zimbabwe and we have concluded that this decision is in the best interests of the World Health Organization. It is my aim to build a worldwide movement for global health. This movement must work for everyone and include everyone.


For me, what is important is to build political leadership and create unity around bringing health to all, based on WHO’s core values. I remain firmly committed to working with all countries and their leaders to ensure that every one has access to the health care they need.


We must build bridges that bring us together and help us move forward in our quest to achieve universal health coverage. I thank everyone who has voiced their concerns and shared their thoughts. I depend on constructive debate to help and inform the work I have been elected to do."

The new WHO director should be very wise. All the white people are not happy with him being the Director General. They thought the British candidate would have won.

Now for this appointment, I don't know why he gave it the go ahead, because he has to give the final approval.

He should know they are already plotting his downfall. This is just the beginning. Bait traps have been set Dr.Tedros. use your African sense.
