EFF Statement on Donald Trump Withdrawing Funding for WHO (16.04.2020)

Opinion: Trump halts funding to the WHO, because the Emperor is naked…

It is about time now. This is enough, the world is suffering with a pandemic. The United States and the Trump Administration is halting funds to the World Health Organization (WHO). The Washington D.C. Consensus of our day is internal squabble and create enemies.

The US has done enough bad decisions abroad, across shores and caused havoc. If that being the Iran agreement, the trade-war with China. The causes of stir with NATO and so-on. There has been nothing positive. His done nothing to prevent the North Koreans from shooting missiles towards Japan. There is no stopping of trouble within Iraq, who the lawmakers want to banish them. While the hawks in DC wants to start a war against Teheran.

So, its not like the US or Trump Administration is doing anyone a favour. Neither is the Coup d’etat sponsored in Bolivia. The trying to forge a right-wing change of guards in Caracas in Venezuela. It is not like they are playing softballs, they are doing it right in-front of our eyes. The only thing missing is CIA troops on the streets with trained militias in the US And then send them to the streets.

With this in mind. The way the destructive behaviour from the White House abroad. This is a continuation of it. The way it has targeted WHO and its director in the midst of the COVID-19 and the Coronavirus outbreak. A virus who has shed a dim light on the lacking profound leadership in Washington. Where it has shown the erratic behaviour is serving no gain. Therefore, it is easier to pin-point outsiders, than looking into own mediocrity. Which is bountiful and the warnings of it was all there, but the President and his team didn’t worry. Not until the house started burning. Than, they wondered why there was firemen coming.

President Trump might think his brilliant making WHO an enemy and a target. However, it is only undressing his mismanage. The king is without clothes. The emperor is naked. In front of his court, his a jester and joke. His insincere and he knows it. However, he thinks this is his trick. The trick that might save him at home, but abroad we know the deal.

He is halting funding for the organization who is funding and coordinating the research into the vaccine against the virus. The virus that has hurt the US the most, because of mismanagement. The man who has talked ill of the Untied Nations. Who has worked against global efforts and thwarted deals. Just like he just recently breached the International Space Agreement. Just so he can in his own mind start to mine the MOON. That is the sort of fella we are operating with.

President Trump is hearing of the carnage. The reasons for this act. Not that its good, not that its grandeur. It is the epic failure and trying to forge another narrative. While his own citizens is dying because he didn’t do his job. He didn’t mitigate or care early. Instead, he pumped hope into Wall Street and trying to save the Goodfella’s at Corporate America. Because, the citizens doesn’t matter as much as the big-men of the corporate-citizens. They matter more and more.

The WHO is just functioning the way it is because of the powers all its stakeholders gives it. The matter of how the world will want to support it and be behind it. Especially in the time of need like now. They are the ones coordinating and working with scientists world-wide. They are in-charge of studies and securing the studies are followed-up upon. Which in the end will save us all and give us a way-out.

That is how POOR Trump is. His the impoverished mind, the broke fellow of a spirit. Who has so little consideration, that unless he gets a few tokens and praise, he will buckle and cry like a baby. That is who he is and the world see it. There is no escape in a crisis and Trump is showing signs of fatigue. Weakness and above all, no strategy, no co-ordination and no punt to secure a better tomorrow. Only self-destruction and trying to bring the world on his team. What a fool, what a weak man. He might have powers in his office, in his role in DC, but he doesn’t have a character who can carry it. It is not in him and there was anything in him to change that either.

The emperor is naked. Time to release the dragons and let’s us enjoy the show. Peace.

Statement by H.E. Mr. Moussa Faki Mahamat, Chairperson of the African Union Commission, on the 26th Commemoration of the Genocide Against the Tutsi in Rwanda (Kwibuka26) – (07.04.2020)

Fellow Africans

Youth, Ladies and Gentlemen

Today we commemorate the 26th Anniversary of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda (KWIBUKA26), under the theme: “Remember-Unite-Renew”.

This is the twelfth year since the African Union started the annual commemoration of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda. However, this year our commemoration activities have been limited due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Although we will not be formally gathering at the African Union Commission for this event as usual, I encourage you to commemorate this day from wherever you are.

This annual commemoration affords us an opportunity to reflect, and continue the fight against genocide, its ideology, denial and impunity with a view to ensure that never again shall Africa experience such a heinous crime against humanity.

In this regard, I would like to pay tribute to the leadership and the people of Rwanda for consistently working towards “Never Again” and for emerging through resilience and unity from the terrible past and putting Rwanda on a development path that continues to inspire many countries on our continent and beyond.

Fellow Africans;

Between April and July 1994, the world stood still in awe as more than a million people were killed in a space of one hundred days in Rwanda. As we remember the fallen mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters in Rwanda, we should not be oblivious of the fact that genocide is always well planned, deliberately executed with impunity, yet genocide is also always followed by denial.

We should, therefore, redouble our efforts in fighting genocide ideology, its denial as well as impunity. If genocide ideology persists, its denial will continue unabated and impunity will reign. This task should not be the responsibility of the leadership and people of Rwanda alone. It is the collective responsibility of the African Union, Regional Economic Communities/regional mechanisms and all Member States, CSOs, the youth organisations, the women’s movement, Media and Academia. We should collectively combat genocide ideology, impunity and denial working hand-in-glove with the international community and all other stakeholders.

Fighting impunity should equally be at the heart of our collective efforts as AU member states as well as the international community by arresting, prosecuting or extraditing indicted fugitives. Last year at its 836th meeting held on 3rd April, the AU Peace and Security Council called upon countries to arrest, prosecute or extradite fugitives accused of genocide. It is imperative that countries move towards implementation of this decision.

This commemoration should remind us of a past never to be repeated. It should challenge us to deal with the present and the future in our efforts towards achieving peace, reconciliation, accountability, justice, social harmony, constructive management of diversity and the respect for and protection of human and peoples’ rights on the African Continent.

Our Commemoration of KWIBUKA26 this year assumes a special significance given the AU Theme for this year (2020) “Silencing the Guns: Creating Conducive Conditions for Africa’s Development”. I wish to seize this opportunity to call on all Africans to renew our commitment to promote peaceful and inclusive societies that will silence the guns for the attainment of socio-economic development and structural transformation and provide a firm foundation for building the Africa We Want and the Africa we Deserve.

Let us “Remember-Unite-Renew”.

I thank you.
