Robert Mugabe health envoy

The World Health Organisation is appointing Robert Mugabe, the tyrant of Zimbabwe, as its goodwill ambassador for health. This is absolutely bizarre.

In a meeting held at Victoria Falls of the WHO Regional Committee for Africa, the Director-General of the WHO,  Dr  Ghebreyesus who only took his position in May 2017 said

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to our noble cause. And thank you, Your Excellency President Mugabe, for joining us despite your busy schedule. This shows your strong commitment to health, and we value that, for coming all the way from Harare to join us. Please accept, Your Excellency, my greatest respect and appreciation. … Thank you for accepting my offer to be the WHO’s goodwill ambassador.

The latest reports show that the WHO is ‘rethinking’ its nomination of Mugabe, but the damage has been done. They may as well appoint Kim Jong-Un as a goodwill ambassador.

    Mugabe has attained a new record for providing involuntary euthanasia service to white farmers. Good to see WHO recognising his efforts! congrats Muga!

    I nominate Idi Amin as posthumous Goodwill Ambassador for healthy eating.

    The WHO may well take out this year’s award for the most egregious self-inflicted wound.

    Good thing Pol Pot has long demised; no telling what grand job title, and stratospheric salary, these vermin would bestow upon him.

    That Mugabe has had a long, interesting and obviously fruitful “working relationship” with our “benevolent” Chinese cousins is also not to be lightly dismissed.

  5. It just keeps proving how utterly pointless the UN is in today’s world.

    That Mugabe has had a long, interesting and obviously fruitful “working relationship” with our “benevolent” Chinese cousins is also not to be lightly dismissed.

    He had something more than a passing infatuation with the DPRK back in the day as the relatives of 26,000 murdered Matabeles could attest.

  7. Snoopy

    When something like the UN Human Rights Committee is attacked. UN apologists trot out WHO as an example of a ‘good’ UN agency which exemplifies why we should continue to support the UN.

    It’s not good but it’s possibly the best they have. Think about that.

    Just a big “FU” to whitey from the UN.

    As previously mentioned, I was lampooned back in the day when Mr Mandela finally got the big chair in South Africa because I was rude enough to suggest that it gave me a warm inner glow but that in a decade or so the place would be a basket case. Having seen the deterioration in the society and economy, it has come time to no longer go to Cape Town, the greatest city in the world. You are not safe. Luckily the sacrifice of a Country and its people for the global desires of elites that are unaffected by such things is in their minds worth it. Of course the people I know there, unshackled from the evils of the previous regime are now living with an accumulating fear for their way of life and are torn between staying in a Country that they love and having to find refuge elsewhere. These people could never be refugees under the current rules of engagement.

  13. Marcus

    It’s probably on account of his unnatural long life, which the WHO mistook for evidence of the standard of healthcare in Zimbabwe instead of his greed, rapaciousness, and (who knows?) a dark pact with the Devil.

  14. John Constantine

    Their Mugabe is nonagenarian proof of the theory of the benefits of injecting human fetal blood for the stem cells into dictators with unlimited access to the raw materials.

  15. Peter

    The WHO at some stage redefined the term “health” to mean something wholly different from that which we know it to be (as Leftists are wont to do). Now health is “….. a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
    Well that should be enough to keep them going for the next few thousand years and to mandate them to redistribute wealth in pursuit of their social agenda.
    Honest to God, every time I think of the UN and its endless basket of deplorables (now there is a real use for Hillary’s term) it makes my skin crawl as if I have a just discovered a family of insects burrowing into me and devouring me from the inside. Which oddly enough is what the UN is attempting to achieve with civilization. The appointment of a dictator like Mugabe as goodwill ambassador is just another case of them deliberately thumbing its nose at civilized people.
    Cut funds to them and let it rot on the vine for God’s sake.

    Robert Mugabe is a guy who can tell the world a few things about racism, tribalism, HIV and about being god, if my memory has done its job.

    Clearly, he’ll fit it well at the U.N.

  22. Robbo

    Once again we see a public demonstration of how hopeless the UN is and again begs the question of what the hell are we doing remaining a member of that useless organisation. Rather than feting Mugabe they should be ostracising him and pursuing him for crimes against humanity.

  26. Some History

    The World Health Organization (WHO) on Wednesday appointed President Robert Mugabe as a global health ambassador for Africa to help governments tackle chronic diseases such as diabetes, stroke, cancer and heart disease.
    Mugabe, Africa’s oldest ruler at 93, will work with national and local politicians to highlight the heavy economic and health burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), United Nations health agency said.
    WHO director-general Tedros Ad-hanom Ghebreyesus said Mugabe’s appointment would enable governments to “strengthen our response together” to these “major public health challenges”.
    NCDs and injuries are responsible for 43 million deaths each year, according to the WHO – almost 80 percent of all deaths worldwide – but the much of the premature death and disability they cause could be prevented with lifestyle-targeted measures.
    Mugabe’s role will be to encourage policies aimed at reducing peoples’ exposure to the main risk factors – tobacco and alcohol use, unhealthy diets and lack of exercise.

    https://www.dailynews.co.zw/articles/2017/10/19/who-appoints-mugabe-global-health-ambassador

    Good ol’ Mugabe has been elevated to “Saint Bob” of the WHO. It’s tyrants fawning over each other. Under the guise of attacking “non-communicable diseases” a bunch of finger-wagging twonks have set their dictatorial sights on old targets – tobacco, alcohol, diet, exercise. We’re back 100 years to America and Germany when the medically-aligned dominated proceedings through eugenics.

    And Saint Bob joins Saint Mick [Bloomberg] as a WHO Ambassador. Saint Mick and Bill Gates have pumped hundreds of millions of dollars into anti-tobacco; see comments here:

    (cont’d)

    The WHO has advised countries to hike taxes on tobacco into the stratosphere. Australia has been stupid enough to embrace the advice. And guess what? The stupid step has promoted a contraband market in Australia. Who couldn’t see that coming? See comments here:
    http://catallaxyfiles.com/2017/09/24/more-evidence-of-plain-packaging-failure/

    Unperturbed by fact or reason, Saint Mick and another UN agency – the World Bank – are plumbing new depths in stupidity:

    On Wednesday, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a group of finance ministers, and a handful of policy experts will meet behind closed doors to discuss a tax measure that has the potential to save millions of lives.
    Tobacco taxes — when they are implemented with the express purpose of reducing the number of people who smoke — offer national governments an extremely effective policy tool for tackling negative health outcomes, William Savedoff, a senior fellow at the Center for Global Development who will also be in Wednesday’s meeting, told Devex.

    Prematurely, I posted this on the open thread this morning. It belongs here.

    World Health Org. reconsidering Mugabe’s appointment as “Goodwill ambassador.’ The elevation of this open wound really is black comedy. On other pages. Killers of white farmers in Zimbabwe will never be prosecuted says the very same man of goodwill. He could be winging his way to Singapore any day for his fourth visit this year to his favoured clinic. His own ‘health service’ has missed out on all that love and goodwill.

    There’s a few ex-pats living around here. Any that have seen their farms since Mugabe took over all, tell the same story – the seed grain boiled and eaten , the breeding stock slaughtered and eaten, the machinery and spares sold on the “black market” ( no pun intended ) and the women till the ground with hoes, the same as their great grandmothers did, while the men sit in the shade, drinking beer, and telling each other how brave they were in the “bush war” – which ended before most of them were born.

    All largely because the relevant Minister embezzled the funds designated to pay pensions to the veterans – eight hundred million dollars or so – to build himself a luxury hotel on the shores of Lake Geneva, and declined to return home and face the music…

  42. Some History

    Mugabe’s role will be to encourage policies aimed at reducing peoples’ exposure to the main risk factors – tobacco and alcohol use, unhealthy diets and lack of exercise.

    We’re back 100 years to America and Germany when the medically-aligned dominated proceedings through eugenics.

    We’ve been here before. “Tobacco, alcohol, unhealthy diet, lack of exercise” were the behavioral dimension of eugenics (health reduced to a solely physical phenomenon). “Good stock” avoided tobacco, alcohol, unhealthy diet, lack of exercise. Early-1900s America, where eugenics was first popularized, was a time of “fittest babies”, “fittest families”. In the early-1900s, America enacted Prohibition and was seeking a tobacco variant of prohibition. Hitler and the Germans were students of American eugenics.

    Here’s Hitler promoted as a “no alcohol/no tobacco” role model (p.1451):
    ‘Our Fuhrer Adolf Hitler drinks no alcohol and does not smoke…. His performance at work is incredible.” (From Auf der Wacht 1937:18)

    They may as well appoint Kim Jong-Un as a FAO ambassador.

  45. candy

    WHO has long been recognised as the leader on critical health matters around the world.

    Surely they look like idiots now? The only thing I can think of is that WHO members are all under 30 and don’t know about Mugabe, just that he’s a black leader and therefore worth a prestigious award, simply because he’s black.
    Otherwise, it makes no sense.

  46. Shine a Light

    It would place my trust in any Australian politician to distribute our hard earned cash before it within arms length of a politician with Mugabe’s history.

  47. Well, if our slipshod and benighted government can’t see that it’s time to get out of the UN once and for all, then they’re really as stupid as we think they are.

    This is worse than a sick joke, it’s a plain slap in the face with a wet fish insult. Mugabe is one of the worst examples of non-humanity you could find. He doesn’t care who he has killed, if they’re against him in the slightest way, they’re dead meat. And the disgusting UN has made him a goodwill ambassador for health????

    We really are seeing the open face of evil now – and it belongs to the UN.

    Nothing from the UN or any other internationalist organisation surprises me anymore. I suspect Kim Jong-un will be the next Nobel Peace Prize laureate with the runner up being Putin.

    WORLD BREAKING NEWS
    WHO poised to overturn Mugabe appointment

    Stephanie Nebehay
    Reuters
    10:01PM October 22, 2017

    The World Health Organisation (WHO) is poised to sideline Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe as a goodwill ambassador after major Western donors and rights groups voiced outrage at the hastily-announced appointment.

    WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus named Mugabe to the largely ceremonial post at a high-level WHO meeting on chronic diseases, attended by both men, in Uruguay on Wednesday.

    Tedros praised Zimbabwe as “a country that places universal health coverage and health promotion at the centre of its policies to provide health care to all”.

    Tedros, who has returned to Geneva, said in a tweet on Saturday evening that he was “rethinking the approach in light of WHO values” and that a statement was forthcoming.

    Breaking news, from the Oz. Seems Wobbly Bob might not get the job, after all.

  51. From The Oz:
    Diplomats said his appointment was a political payoff from Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus – the WHO’s first African director-general – to China, a long-time ally of Mugabe, and the 50 or so African states that helped to secure Tedros’s election earlier this year.

    It would’ve helped destroy the unwarranted credibility so many give the UN.

    Like they didn’t want to expose the UN to too much ridicule.

    Mugabe.

    Is easily given a United Nations slush fund as a plaything.

    Australia continues to cravenly submit to united nations treaties calling for the revolutionary economic genocide of our country, because the worst hellholes in the world have voted for us to be looted.

    What a brilliant idea, julie bishop.

  58. rickw

    We need to stop funding the UN and all its tentacles. The appointment of Mugabe is in fact a normal piece of UN thinking, usually they don’t make it so obvious.

  59. Shine a Light

    You would imagine someone in WHO would have known that Zimbabwe’s “health system has albut collapsed” and the keys metrics of infant mortality and life expectancy are horrific.

    To an ordinary block, it looks failure, reverse agism and chauvinism in no barrier to job prospects at the UN.

    Too late.

    Vlad Putin was already formally nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.
    Josef Stalin was formally nominated in 1948 and in 1945, and his fellow Socialist Leader Adolf Hitler was formally nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1939.

    this shows how the Group of 77 have screwed up the fundamental values that the UN was started with. For the uninitiated, the G77 is basically every dictatorship, busted arse nation, theocracy, socialist republic and the rest of the third world, they hold around 120 of the 180 odd for the general assembly and act as a cartel. This group is probably the one pushing climate change as a mechanism for wealth transfers from liberal western democracies to the corrupt governments they run. They have been after .7% of developed nations GDP for at least the last 40 odd years as a penalty for colonialism and as a hand out. Basically this cartel ensures that even the smallest pissant nation like Cuba has greater voting power than the US and other developed nations. This bloc is also the driving force for all the UN resolutions against Israel, and is the perfect reason for the USA to defund the UN and for the rest of the western world to leave these corrupt megalomaniacs to their own devices.
