Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus:
is the WHO led by a terrorist?
The go-between of Gates and China
engaged in the global leadership
In a just a few weeks time, the fate of the entire planet seems to
have been placed under the command of the World Health Organization
(WHO) and its leader, Tedros Gherbreyesus.
But over the last few days his
handling of the coronavirus crisis and his relationships with China
have put the chairman of the organization under heavy fire, with
many calling for his resignation. 1
So who is this man who
supposedly has our destiny in his hands?

and public health
During one of the many Covid-19 press conferences at the White
Fauci showed all his appreciation for Tedros Ghebreyesus,
the new 'hero':
"Tedros is really an outstanding person. I've known him from the
time that he was the minister of Health in Ethiopia. The WHO has
done very well under his leadership." 2
But after what seemed to have been many
'blunders' in the
announcements and recommendations of the WHO since the pandemic
started, many now see him walking the walk of shame, rather than the
walk of fame.
Born on March 3rd, 1965 in Asmara (Ethiopia), Tedros Adhanom
Ghebreyesus was elected Director-General of the WHO in 2017.
He is the first African to head the health agency and the first not
to be a doctor.
He holds a B.Sc. in Biology from the University of
Asmara in Eritrea and a PhD in Community Health from the University
of Nottingham in the United Kingdom in 2000 and served as Ethiopia's
Health Minister from 2005 to 2012.
From 2009 to 2011, Tedros Ghebreyesus was also the Director of the
Global Fund, a program to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria,
initiated by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, as well as the
head of the UNAIDS Program Coordinating Board.
A member of the Board of the GAVI Alliance for Immunization, Tedros
Ghebreyesus was further closely associated with the Clinton
Foundation and the Clinton AIDS Initiative (CHAI).
poised, he is portrayed as a humble, compassionate figure, a
benefactor to humanity, dedicated to his heavy responsibilities.
The Tigray People's Liberation Front (TPLF)
It is therefore rather astonishing to discover that Ghebreyesus'
political career began at the politburo of the Tigray People's
Liberation Front (TPFL), a terrorist organization of the Tigray
minority ethnic group (6% of the Ethiopian population), listed in
the U.S. Homeland Security Global Terrorism Database for a
series of kidnappings, bombings and armed robberies. 3
The United States has classified the TPFL as a Tier III terrorist
In its 1975 manifesto, the TPFL had declared an
"eternal war" on
neighboring populations, mainly the Amhara and Oromo ethnic groups,
representing 30% and 34% of the population.
After several years of guerrilla warfare, the TPFL overthrew the
Mengistu regime with the help of another Eritrean liberation
movement, and took power in 1991 as a branch of a single
Marxist-inspired party, the Ethiopian People's Democratic
Revolutionary Front (EPDRF), which is only democratic in name.
Human Rights Organizations repeated alarms
Amnesty International denounced its political violence for
A report published in an international law journal 6 claimed that
in spite of efforts to disguise its dictatorship, the TPFL was
"abusing the notions
of self-determination and democracy to plunder Ethiopia."
This was also the alarm
raised by a document of the Oakland Institute which estimated that
the $3.5 billion aid funds received by Ethiopia, (60% of the
national budget), were mainly used for political repression. 7
This was again confirmed by Human Rights Watch (HWR), who
accused the European Parliament in 2016 of overlooking the numerous
violations committed by the Ethiopian regime it was funding. 8
HWR claimed that under the leadership of the EPRDF, the government
had diverted funds from international aid programs, using them as
political weapons to control the population, punish dissent and
repress its opponents.
Programs for food aid, agriculture,
micro-credit or healthcare exclusively benefited certain ethnic
groups, while others had been systematically deprived of them.
Perhaps one could give Tedros Ghebreyesus the benefit of the doubt,
imagining him as a noble reformer who, having strayed at the
beginning, would have turned into a devoted humanitarian bringing
his light into the darkness of a bad regime.
That illusion quickly fades away when one discovers the damning
dossier presented by the Amhara Professional Union (APU), accusing
him of having carried out a real genocidal policy as Ethiopia's
Minister of Health. 9
Indeed, the Amhara ethnic group lost more than 2.5 million people
between the 1997 and 2007 censuses.
While the other major ethnic
groups grew by a yearly average of 2.6%, the Amharas had a slower
population increase, with only 1.9%.
They did not benefit from the same health services and were not
allocated equal resources as the dominating Tigray population,
except for one program, a contraceptive campaign for which the
Amhara appeared to have been on top of the list.
population had 5 times better health coverage in terms of
infrastructure and number of healthcare providers.
In contrast, the Amhara population had a much higher use of
injectable contraceptives, such as Dep-Provera (19% Tigray, 29%
Amhara) while overall receiving less information about family
planning and contraceptive methods (Tigray received 2 to 3 times
more information on TV, Radio and Print).
Depo-Provera is a highly controversial product that received a black
box warning 10,11 in the U.S. for an increased incidence of
osteoporosis and higher risk of breast cancer.
But it has also been associated with a rise in AIDS cases and
difficulties to regain fertility after prolonged use, two conditions
that also seemed prevailing among the Amhara population.
accused the Ethiopian government of racial discrimination by pushing
the use of Depo onto their woman without their informed consent.
According to another report "Depo-Provera Deadly Reproductive
Violence Against Woman," 13 family planning promoting this drug in
Africa engages in de facto discrimination policies, making false
claims about the product's effects and failing to inform women about
its harms and side-effects.
Such products have been restricted or even banned in Europe and the
U.S., but they are still included in family planning of the WHO, and
programs such as FP2020, supported and led by the Bill and Melinda
This led to heavy criticism 14 from health groups and human rights
Perhaps the Trump administration also took some of these arguments
into account when it announced it would stop financing the U.N.

Bill Gates said he was 'deeply troubled' by the announced U.S. cuts,
but at the international summit on family planning that was held in
London later in 2017, the U.K., the IMF, World Bank and
international NGO's committed to a new funding for a total of $2,5
Tedros Ghebreyesus, who attended the meeting as the new leader of
the WHO, promised to,
"personally champion the issue of sexual and
reproductive rights as a top priority," 15
...hereby reaffirming his
personal interest and involvement in birth control policies… and
their dubious consequences.
Anything but cholera
But Tedros Ghebreyesus is also known for covering up of several
cholera outbreaks in Ethiopia (2006, 2009, 2011), by relabeling them
"Acute Watery Diarrhea" (AWD). 16
The report of a WHO field expert on the 2006 outbreak, however,
certified that Vibrio cholerae had indeed been identified as
the causal agent. 17
Tedros preferred not to damage the image of his party and his
By refusing to declare the outbreak, he deprived these
populations of the basic help they needed, such as re-hydration
measures and sanitation of water.
The same scenario was repeated in 2009 and 2011, even under his WHO
leadership, when he ignored a massive outbreak in Sudan, Ethiopia's
conflicting neighbor, according to an open letter signed by a team
of U.S. doctors and Genocide Watch. 18
Chairman of the Global Fund, making money
The Global Fund is a partnership led by the Bill and Melinda
Foundation to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
In July 2009, Tedros was elected Board Chair of the Fund for a two-year term. In a
profile published in April 2010, The Lancet reported that he was,
household name at the Global Fund Secretariat" and that his
achievements led to name Ethiopia as an exemplary high-performing
A surprising conclusion, when one finds out that during his
leadership, the use of international aid funds he supervised was
In 2012, an audit 19 of the Global Fund looked at the expenses of
the aids, tuberculosis and malaria program in several African
countries, including Ethiopia who had received $1.3 billion in
Inspector General John Parson who was in charge of the audit,
revealed a flagrant lack of transparency, numerous shortcomings in
the accounting and management of the funds, to the point of
suggesting a minimum payback of $7 millions to the organization.
Above all, the investigation also showed a huge discrepancy between
the results presented and the reality observed in Ethiopia during
the field visits.
77% of the medical centers built did not have drinking
water and 32% did not have sanitary facilities.
Only 14% had a
microscope or a delivery table, and only 12% had a pharmacy.
The report should have led to a series of measures ensuring more
transparency and efficacy in the management of the program, but
instead the Inspector General and his findings were dismissed.
Obviously, good relationships with African governments leaders had a
far greater importance.
Bloody Minister of Foreign Affairs
Then in 2012, at the end of his term in the Health Department,
Tedros Ghebreyesus was appointed head of Foreign Affairs (from 2012
to 2016), a further confirmation that he had always remained at the
heart of the Party's decisions, and was still serving its goals with
For example, in 2013, when Saudi Arabia chose to send back
immigrants from different nations, the only country that took no
steps to repatriate its nationals was Ethiopia.
This inaction, for which he was responsible, led to violence against
Ethiopians by the Saudis. 20
In 2014, Tedros, the former TPLF terrorist, also organized the
kidnapping, extradition and condemnation of several dissident
leaders and hundreds of asylum seekers in Yemen, with the complicity
of the Yemeni government. 21
WHO election backed by Gates and China

agency Mercury Public Affairs (specializing in political campaigns)

in terms of watering down his sulphurous image and in pushing him as,

When the candidates were interviewed before the votes, the Brazilian
Ambassador asked Tedros how he intended to,
"represent the voice
of developing countries by proposing a program that was much
more aligned with the priorities of the countries of the North",
referring to his approach of health through security (pandemic
preparedness), and to treating 'equality' in terms of "coverage"
(vaccines), rather than in the development of universal health
systems (for example medical infrastructure and training or access
He also remarked that Tedros had not proposed anything concrete in
terms of sustainable development for vulnerable countries. 22
In fact, this "northern agenda" was very much aligned with the
priorities of the Global Health Security Agenda, promoted by WHO's
four main funders and influencers:
the Bill and Melinda Gates
the United States (24%)
the U.K. (11%)
the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization which was again
mainly funded by Gates (17%), the U.S. (11%) and the U.K. (31%)
Clearly, the influence Bill Gates exerts on the WHO cannot be
understated, as we are reminded by an article in the mainstream
journal Politico published a few weeks before the vote "Meet the
World's Most Powerful Doctor: Bill Gates" 23 stating,
are satisfied with buying themselves an island. Bill Gates got a
UN agency in Geneva."
Insiders said he is treated like a head of state, not only at the
WHO, but also at the G20 summit, and has an outsized influence over
the agenda of the organization.
While the World Health Assembly was in session, the
administration unveiled its proposed budget which would cut the
annual global health budget by 26%, defunding health programs
favored by Gates and the Obama administration, such as
HIV/malaria/tuberculosis of the Global Fund and family planning.
Needless to say, Tedros was Bill Gates' favorite candidate, given
their strong ties in the Global Fund and Family Planning policies.
But Tedros' election at the WHO in May 2017, was also backed by

have developed nearly 70% of the Ethiopian infrastructure and are
financing the construction of the headquarters of the future African
Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.
For its part, Ethiopia occupies a strategic position, as it is the
gateway to the African continent, when coming from the East.
No wonder that in March 2017, two months ahead of the WHO election,
Ghebreyesus was invited to deliver a keynote speech at the Beijing

Public Policy Forum
Interestingly Bill Gates took part in same event, with a talk on
"Looking to the Future - Innovation, Philanthropy and Global
Leadership" 24 in which he summarized his partnerships with the
Chinese government in four essential areas:
even nuclear energy
Here are a few
eye-opening quotes, showing that Gates clearly invests in China as
the world new leader:
"China is primed to step up as a global leader.
It's great to see China stepping up to fill the leadership vacuum.
It is uniquely well-equipped to do so. No other country has
accomplished what China has achieved in the last few decades (…) at
a scale and speed unprecedented in human history.
And by encouraging investment through innovative financing
mechanisms like the China-Africa Development Fund, China is
strengthening not only Africa's economic capacity, but also, over
time, markets for Chinese goods.
China has a great opportunity to be a global leader in health

Charles Chen Yidan and Niu Gensheng, have helped create the world's
second largest pool of individual wealth.

But Gates is obviously not the only ally of China.
Its ties with a
large part of the western
globalist elite deserves a closer
Looking at the board members
25 of the Tsinghua University School
of Economics and Management, hosted by Wang Qishan the
vice-president of the Republic of China, we find individuals such as,
Henry Paulson, CEO of Goldman Sachs
Jamie Dimon of JP
Corbat from Citigroup
the CEOs of Dell, McKinsey, IBM, Walmart, General
Motors, BlackRock, Tata,
...and many others.
What are they really doing on the board of a Chinese University?
Doesn't it rather look like a global strategic board?
The role of Tedros in the Coronavirus pandemic
These connections do explain why the WHO management of
crisis has largely been influenced by Beijing and why Tedros openly
praised the Chinese government after his meeting with Xi Jinping.
"We appreciate the seriousness of China's response to this epidemic,
especially the strength of its leadership 26 and the
transparency they demonstrated", 27
"China exemplifies new standards in epidemic preparedness and
He further called the draconian quarantine measures taken by the
Beijing government "heroic," 29 while paradoxically insisting on
keeping air traffic with China open.
On Feb. 3, Tedros rebuked the U.S. and other countries that had
closed off their borders when it became clear that the communist
nation wasn't containing the virus' spread.
"There is no reason for measures that unnecessarily interfere with
international travel and trade. We call on all countries to
implement decisions that are evidence-based and consistent," he
Although most airlines
quickly suspended their flights, Ethiopian Airlines is one of the
few that maintained connections with China throughout the crisis.
The Forum on China-Africa Cooperation reported a phone call 31
between Ethiopia's Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali and Xi Jinping
confirming once again the close ties between the two countries.
"This phone call as
well as the two letters of sympathies from the Prime Minister
attest to the profound friendship and mutual support between
China and Ethiopia as comprehensive strategic cooperative
Ethiopia has followed
WHO recommendations and kept its normal ties and exchanges with
China. China appreciates such expression of confidence."
Control over Africa's health and economy is obviously an important
stake in the management of the coronavirus epidemic.
Just a few days
ago, the Trump administration warned over Chinese spying in the
future African Center for Disease Control facility, saying it would
stop funding if Beijing goes on with building its headquarter in
The Financial Times 32 quoted an official of the U.S.
"It's a threat to Africa. Africa has vast amounts of genomic data
and the Chinese want to build the CDC to eventually steal the data
from all the other centers," referring to five regional Africa CDC
hubs, "they handle high-risk viruses, health crises, research and
Washington said the U.S. had invested $900m to support health in
Africa over the last 15 years, and had given the African CDC $14m in
its first year of operation, in 2017.
But the Chinese already went ahead and put $200m in the construction
of the 'bugged' African Union's Conference Center which currently
houses the African CDC secretariat.
It seems China and the U.S. had
found a cooperation agreement on the issue under the Obama
administration, but it could not last for long under the Trump
We could also wonder what role the WHO and China are really playing
in the Italian crisis
At the beginning of the epidemic, Ghebreyesus called on the Italians,
"not to stigmatize the Chinese" by insisting that the time was
"not for judgment, but for solidarity."
The valuable recommendations of the WHO director thus barred the
Italian government from confining people returning from China.
Worse still, the Mayor of the city of Florence, which has an
important number of Chinese immigrants, was encouraged to launch a
national campaign inviting his fellow citizens to "hug a Chinese in
the street!" 33
But such a complacency towards China is also due to the fact that
last year the Salvini government was the first G7 country to sign an
economic partnership with China in the
Belt and Road project, that
would give them direct access to the Mediterranean.
Now that Salvini's party left the government last fall, the outbreak
of the coronavirus crisis probably urged the new majority to
reassess its ties with Beijing.
Italy then suddenly became the first Western government to stop its
flights from China.
But the country might pay the price of its
infidelity as it currently stands very isolated.
European partners refused to come to the rescue and China is trying
to maintain its hold by sending medical help and experts to solve
the crisis, planning to help reconstruction after the country
In the meantime, the WHO which has its European headquarters in
Venice, one of the main affected areas, has delegated one of its
main experts to take control of the pandemic response.
But the number of death cases in Italy is still soaring and is by
far exceeding other countries, while no convincing scientific
explanation has been offered, even if factors such as an older
population and a lack of intensive care units have aggravated the
situation and if case reporting is biased.
Last month, Russia sent out a whole team of experts and military
doctors to help northern Italy deal with the crisis, but the team
will certainly put their efforts into investigating what is truly
In any case, it is now obvious that the WHO and its leaders have a
pandemic response agenda that has more to do with,
and world leadership than health...
Bill Gates seems to be leading the initiative with the CEPI fund to
hasten the production of vaccines.
He is pushing his global governance agenda with his army of devoted
health experts, such as the members of the Coronavirus Response Task
Force, Fauci and Birx, who are long-time close partners of the
Global Fund AIDS campaign.
And with their Beijing ties, it is no wonder that Fauci refused to
answer the press who asked his opinion on Tedros praising China.
The chairman of the World Health Organization is serving Africa on a
silver plate to the new leaders of a corporate - communist inspired
- global government.
Tedros, you are unmasked...!
