Ethiopia wants WHO chief Tedros probed for "misconduct"
By Rédaction Africanews with AP - Jan. 15th, 2022
The Ethiopian government has accused the World Health Organization director of “misconduct“ after he criticized conditions in the Tigray region.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was nominated by the Ethiopian government to be the head of the U.N. health agency four years ago, but claims he has “not lived up to the integrity and professional expectations”. He has been accused of interfering in Ethiopia's internal affairs, according to a press release issued on Thursday by the Ethiopian ministry of foreign affairs.
“Through his acts, (Tedros) spread harmful misinformation and compromised WHO's reputation, independence, and credibility,” the statement reads.
