Further Proof The United Nations Is Now A Joke - Sickening: U.N. health agency names tyrant Mugabe ‘goodwill ambassador’; rights activists outraged

Post by Guest on Sun Oct 22, 2017 8:24 am

GENEVA, October 19, 2017 – The non-governmental human rights group UN Watch joined NGOs worldwide in expressing “grave concern” at the U.N. health body’s appointment of Zimbabwe’s dictator as a goodwill ambassador on health, even as his policies have devastated Zimbabwe’s once-prosperous economy, leaving a crumbling health system while Mugabe obtains his own medical assistance outside the country.

“The government of Robert Mugabe has brutalized human rights activists, crushed democracy dissidents, and turned the breadbasket of Africa — and its health system — into a basket-case. The notion that the U.N. should now spin this country as a great supporter of health is, frankly, sickening,” said UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer.

“Amid reports of ongoing human rights abuses, the tyrant of Zimbabwe is the last person who should be legitimized by a U.N. position of any kind,” said Neuer. Over the past decade, UN Watch has brought numerous Zimbabwean human rights activists to testify on the sidelines of UN conferences.

Speaking on October 18 in Uruguay,  WHO director-general Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he was “honored to announce that President Mugabe has agreed to serve as a goodwill ambassador.” He praised Zimbabwe for “placi[ng] universal health coverage and health promotion at the center of its policies to provide health care to all.”

Tedros in August also thanked Mugabe for his “strong commitment to health.”

Rights activists are outraged.

I was just reading about this five minutes ago.
What an absolute joke. That's like making Hitler head of British Gas, or something equally insulting and stupid.

Sadly the United Nations has a majority of dictator/Theocratic states and why countless human rights abusers are protected by such human rights abusive nations.

Its time to desolve the UN, as Eleanor Roosevelt  must be turing over in her grave.

All you need look and see is who is on the UN humans rights council.

How the hell the likes of Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Venezuela, China etc, are members, is an utter joke

Suspect

Re: the Human Rights Commission :

One of their international inspectors comes from Brazil...

That would be the same Brazil that had over 150,000 homeless, orphaned and unwanted street kids "disappear" from city streets without explanation during the 1980s.

Other human rights "inspectors" over the years have apparently come from Iran and certain rogue African nations.

We would all like our friends to be put in high places; our enemies to be vanquished. It is what it is.

The liberals are eating their own again

Mugabe was the golden boy of the whities in the West when he took over Rhodesia.

Looks like the liberals backed the wrong man
