Dr Tedros – Head of World Health Organisation – My personal pain for the Tigray war

In a dramatic and moving statement, the WHO head, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus described the pain he had endured from the war in Tigray.

Speaking at his weekly press conference [about 1 hour 20 minutes in] he said:

“My country, Ethiopia, is in trouble. And the devastating war is happening in my home region of Tigray, the northern part of Ethiopia.

And I have many relatives there, including my younger brother, and I don’t know where they are.

Northern Tigray is in trouble. I have that personal pain. The situation is worsening.”

    1. Dr. Tedros, Where have you been? This isn’t new to the other part of Ethiopian regions!!! Now after 27 years you are feeling the pain of how the other regions have been living!! This is so unfortunate!!!!

  5. Thank you Dr Tedros, for expressing how you’re filling about all this war it’s a million people pain . The war in Tigray killing us all not knowing what’s happened to loved ones with out any communication or humanitarian access for this long we keep asking ourselves
    1: are they alive , are we gone hear from them again
    2: if they still alive have they got food, water , medication and so on all this driving us crazy it’s very disturbing situation . I never, never imagined this kind of situation to witness in my life time. Feel helpless!!

  6. Dear Tigray,
    There isn’t a day that goes by I don’t think of the innocent people of Tigray! I fell so helpless not knowing about my family and my the heart is heavy any time I hear the criminal act that has been commented on and still is ongoing.😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 No Food. No Light. No communication.

  7. Him braking his silence has sent shockwave across the Amhara Hutu Militants spectrum, what needed to known is that Dr. Adhanoms speech is long overdue, We [the non Tigrians ] are already wearing out, every influential person need to step up and have a say on #TigrayGenocide Bosnia did not go through 1/10 of what people of Tigray are going through today, not even Rwanda. As time goes by the genocide actors are stealing dead human bodies and claiming as if it belongs to them, they have just hired an advocacy group in the US to collect petitions to be sent to the US lawmakers, as per the rest of us…we just aren’t doing enough to pursue the legal process to bring Abiy Ahmed and Isayas Afewerki to justice, all while all the tools needed are in our hands.

  8. The ethnic cleansing in Tigray is extraordinarily tragic and atrocious! I never imagined to witness Rowanda #2 in 2020 but no doubt countries like US are behind Abiye Ahmed and the butcher Isaias! But no matter what it takes the Tigray ppl will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes!

  9. It is extremely hard to believe that Ethiopia is turning from one of the Tiger countries in Africa to one of the most repressive nations of our time. In my view it has exceled even North Korea and IASIS’s Eritrea on this perspective. Not even one of the most respected leaders like Dr Theodores can get any pass of mercy from the hands of the dictator Abiy. He is harassing Dr Tedros in pursue of his actions towards ethnic Tigrians. I am referring to the comments from one of his generals and one spokes man called Dina Muftti. They do not shun to persecute and hound people of Tigray origin even if they work as humanitarians for the UN. This is a blow towards the UN and the humanity.

  10. Dr. Tedros i am really sorry for the suffering and the genocide of the people of Tigray by evil abiy ahmad and isayas afewerk. We oromo also suffering so much. God willing One day when the time comes we will be victorious once again.

  11. Dr Tedros, my hero, my role model in health care. Sir, you take a pride in the work you do. A lot of respect for you. And,I feel your pain and hurt, stay strong, we all going through tough times: but this will pass. “ tough times never last, but tough people do.” And you are tough. I witnessed it seen what you went through and still do. Sir, we love you and respect you stay well and save.
