Most WHO employees are natives of the countries in which they work. UN organizations enter a country by making arrangements with government officials — i.e., Ministers of Health — and the government officials hire native employees with funds provided by the UN.
The people in Central Africa are well aware that WHO gets most of its funding from the U.S. even though the money is funneled through the UN. Also, it is routine for the NIH/CDC to send experts to help with complicated matters involving nutrition, health, and disease prevention, i.e., vaccinations for measles, whooping cough, polio, and research-treatment for HIV.
KIHURA NKUBA’S CASE
As mentioned, Kihura’s radio stations reached a lot of people in Central Africa. About the only other sources of information were government controlled TV-radio outlets and contact with workers from the NGO’s. (NGO’s are “non-government organization’s” such as UNICEF, WHO, and the Red Cross.)
Kihura is well educated; smart; has a large extended family; and was very successful with his communications empire. He is also an author with an inquisitive mind.
At some point about 1997 he became curious about the vaccines used in Central Africa and looked into the label for the Sabin oral polio vaccine being administered to children in Uganda. He has no biology or medical training, so he was surprised to see that the vaccine contained “live” polio virus.
After further research he learned that:
In 1997 the U.S. had stopped using the Sabin live vaccine in the U.S.
The French company that manufactures the vaccine administered by WHO told Kihura that the vaccine should NOT be administered to anyone with HIV. In fact, the company said, the risk is so great it should not be administered to family members of those with HIV, or to intimate contacts of people with HIV.
The Sabin live oral vaccine could spread polio to those not already vaccinated if contact were made within the first week or so after the vaccine had been administered. The virus could spread through saliva, nasal mucous, or when a diaper is being changed.
For years, WHO has targeted children for the vaccine. Adults could wait because polio risks diminish with age…more
