I do not think that Dr.Theodros Adhanom, candidate to WHO chair, has full capability to lead the World Health Organisation (WHO). I do not have time to mention how his deep miss-handling could create serious problem with Ethiopian refugees cases in South Africa, Libya, Saudi Arabia and other part of the world, when he was at the post of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Ethiopia. The purpose of this note is not to state on Ethiopian refugees case. It is emphasising on critical issue of the new generation´s serious problem of dangerous drug categorised, CHAT or Khat (ጫት).
Here I would like to mention Dr. Theodros´s ignorance to Millions of Ethiopians suffering with in globally banned dangerous "drug" CHAT (look about chat on this link http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-23163017).
Chat is affecting millions of young generation (including boys and girls under 14). The most expansion time of CHAT in Ethiopia was during Dr. Theodros Adhanom was serving as ministry of Health in Ethiopia. A number of researches were presenting to his ministerial table on the case of dangerously expansion of chat both in Ethiopia and East Africa as a whole. While Mr.Adhanom did not take any measure to save millions of young future hope of the African nations. Therefore I strongly condemn his position to the post of World Health Organisation (WHO).
CHAT or Khat (ጫት) is categorised under the dangerous drugs. Many European and Middle East countries have already banned it not to be entered in any form to their territory.
"The researchers studied two popular designer drugs, mephedrone and methylone, analogs of cathinone, a drug found in the plant Catha edulis (Khat). The drugs entered the drug scene in the 2000s with innocuous names like "bath salts" or "plant food." These drugs originally fell into a legal gray area because they weren't specifically regulated on a federal level, but in October 2011 they were temporarily classified as illegal, schedule one drugs."

Dr.Adhanom was aware of Khat´s dangerousness to the health of human being plus as it is banned by many countries. But he did not speaks out a single word on it. His former boss, the late PM of Ethiopia, Meles Zenawi mentioned in Ethiopian parliament as CHAT or Khat was one of the main way of foreign currency earning to Tigray Peoples Libration Front (TPLF). Therefore Dr. Adhanom prefers to replace the life of millions of Ethiopians and East African people to temporary foreign currency earning of the ruling party, TPLF that he was also a central committee member.
Last but not least, the critical question should be forwarded here to the international community is that how a man with ministry of Health position ignored the life of millions of Africans will be capable to lead the sole global health organisation - WHO?
ADDIS ABABA: The United States issued a warning Thursday to its citizens about travelling to a popular tourist region in Ethiopia after a string of grenade attacks targeting hotels and homes.
The US embassy in Addis Ababa said there had been four grenade blasts this month in Gondar, a city in the north known for its ancient castles.
A popular stop on Ethiopia's tourist circuit, Gondar was also the scene of anti-government protests last year that led to the declaration of a nationwide state of emergency.
"The embassy recommends US citizens carefully consider whether travel to Gondar is necessary at this time," the embassy said in a statement.
A spokesman for Ethiopia's government had no immediate comment.
While Ethiopia has enjoyed rapid economic growth in recent years and falling poverty rates, protests erupted in 2015 by communities disenchanted with the government of Prime Minister Hailemariam Desalegn.
Human rights groups say hundreds of people were killed and thousands arrested when security forces cracked down on the demonstrations.
The unrest erupted in the central Oromo region near the capital and then spread to Amhara in the north, including Gondar.
State-run Fana Broadcasting Corporate reported th is month that Ethiopia's human rights commission had submitted a report to parliament saying 669 people were killed in last year's protests, along with 63 security officers.
The unrest led parliament to declare a six-month state of emergency in October 2016, which was extended for another four months in March.
