Mugabe named goodwill ambassador by WHO

Which idiot decided to give Bob this accolade? Dr Tedros, the new boss of WHO, that's who.
I find this hypocrisy of the highest order an insult to all health organisations.
Going to hell on a bicycle springs to mind.
 
The 2012 Zimbabwe Demographic And Health Survey (ZDHS) estimated national HIV prevalence rates at 15%, meaning that they estimated 12% infection rate for men, and 18% for women.

Mugabe, 93, was in Uruguay for the announcement by WHO director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who said he was “honoured to announce that President Mugabe has agreed to serve as a goodwill ambassador on NCDs for Africa.”

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

Zimbabwe’s healthcare system, like many of its public services, has collapsed under Mugabe’s authoritarian regime, with most hospitals out of stock of essential medicines and supplies, and nurses and doctors regularly left unpaid.
 
Just proves that the UN is not fit for purpose and requires a serious overhaul to clear out the muppets...
 
A prime example of once great institutions becoming asylums ruled by the patients, and this simply confirms it.

Both nominator and nomininee demonstrably unfit for purpose, a sad example of incompetence, cronyism.

The steady devaluation of an important institution with moral values and vital goals has been disappointing to see, a situation where political correctness has placed unfit people in control and reducing a valuable human resource to a global joke.

Mugabe?

Never got a Nobel peace prize but was awarded the Chinese version, a Confucious, in 2015 which he turned down
 
Corrected for you. I am off shopping now , need to replenish my fist aid kit.
Hardly a surprise about the replenishing since you made a complete fist of that
 
So Bob is a goodwill ambassador for WHO
While Saudis chair what is it? Equalities?
That's the UN for you.
You cant maKe this stuff up.

Is this really about making international travel easier for Mr Mugabe - ie now he will be travelling as a UN representative and have a "higher" level of immunity?

Good point, he could well have greased Dr Tedros' palm for exactly that reason.
