South Africa leads the way in Africa withdrawing from the controversial and unelected W.H.O
Shabnam Palesa Mohamed compelled to draft WHO Withdrawal Bill ahead of 31 November deadline to object to IHR amendments, and the 2024 Pandemic Treaty

The international campaign to #ExitTheWHO has grown exponentially. Since the WHO’s proposed new pandemic treaty and amendments to the International Health Regulations were amplified by the health freedom movement, including South African activist-journalist-lawyer Shabnam Palesa Mohamed and ex-WHO scientist Dr Astrid Stuckelberger, we continue to see more and more people step up to campaign daily.
Since 2021, robust and creative campaigns are active on every continent, with informative content, compelling interviews, events, and political efforts. These include hearings in the EU parliament building, protests against WHO’s DG Tedros in India, and Bill HR 79 gaining momentum in the United States. In Africa, South Africa has taken a lead to withdraw from and defund the World Health Organisation, and together build ethical, holistic, safe, effective and affordable health collaborations.
South Africa’s WHO Withdrawal Bill: History
Given the urgent 30 November 2023 deadline to object to the IHR amendments adopted via WHO’s World Health Assembly 75 last year, Mohamed was compelled this August 2023 to draft a bill to withdraw from and defund the WHO. The ground-breaking bill is a strategic and concise three page document, with a preamble for context, five sections with details on process, and deadlines by which the president or parliament must act or notice must be served on the WHO. The bill is first supported by the African Sovereignty Coalition, which supports Africa’s united resistance at World Health Assembly 75 to amendments to the IHR that threaten sovereignty.
The WHO is known to cover up its unaccountable aid workers sexually abusing girls and women of the DRC. Mohamed raised this atrocity in an open letter to the South African government and traditional leaders, just ahead of Africa Day 25th May, supported by four organisations she is involved with. Given the push for the WHO to declare PHEICS and deploy more workers, all children, women and men are in danger.
Efforts leading to the WHO Withdrawal Bill
In 2022, Mohamed, working with the ACDP’s Kenneth Meshoe, succeeded in raising the proposed new pandemic treaty in parliament. The minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Naledi Pandor, guaranteed that there would be a parliamentary process before treaty adoption. Despite Pandor’s well respected credentials, including her BRICS summit role, no such debate happened.
After hearing the clear need, in a democratic society, for a public participation process, Minister Pandor openly stated “I wish to respond to the statement by the honourable Rev Meshoe on the proposed pandemic treaty on pandemic preparedness. I assure the honourable Meshoe that should such a document be agreed by member states, we would certainly have to bring it, as we do with all international instruments, to parliament for deliberation and consideration by our parliament. The honourable Meshoe should not worry that something will be adopted which will not be considered by our elected representatives.”
Instead, the proposed new pandemic treaty, lead by WHO’s International Negotiating Body, is being driven by another South African, Precious Motsoso. Among other disastrous provisions, it would enable the WHO director-general to proclaim a public health emergency in any country, even if that country does not agree. This absolute power can easily be used as a political weapon to sabotage countries. Motsoso is candid about several countries rightfully raising robust objections because they see the WHO’s threat to sovereignty, and exponentially increasing national debt.

Unlawful denial of the public’s democratic rights
In 2022 and 2023, Mohamed, acting for NPO Transformative Health Justice, served several strategic Promotion of Access to Information Act (PAIA) notices on specific South African government departments, requesting transparent information on the pandemic treaty and IHR amendments, C19 vaccine contracts, and vaccine adverse effects transparency. To date, only the office of president Cyril Ramaphosa replied, delegating the PAIA notice to the national health department. The controversial department of health did not respond, although it is legally obligated to.
To date, the DOH has only compensated three survivors of the C19 shot, with hundreds of other survivors and families of victims reporting to SA VAERS that they are ignored or humiliated, and left to deteriorate or die. This is unsurprising considering recent court case revelations about exorbitant and reckless C19 injection agreements signed by the South African government with the infamous Pfizer cartel. Mohamed interviewed #PfizerLeak whistleblower, Canadian Ehden Bieber in 2022.
Should countries withdraw from the WHO?
South Africa will not be the first country to withdraw from the WHO. In 2020, the United States withdrew, and in 2022, Russia announced that it would withdraw. Both the WHO and the UN are deeply influenced and controlled by the WEF (and its funders), whose apartheid-era nuclear weapons selling chair, the megalomaniac Klaus Schwab, openly admits to “penetrating governments” with the WEF’s tentacles.
The WHO Withdrawal Bill is well-received by the South African public (with Mohamed leading a live vote to exit WHO, 30th of September in Cape Town), African allies, and international allies. Scientist, activist, and brilliant conflicts of interest researcher Fahrie Hassan said “The WHO’s criminal complicity in the Kenyan Tetanus Vaccine scandal, the 2009 H1N1 Pandemic fabrication, the 1986 Chernobyl Nuclear Cover-up, The Opioid Conspiracy and the Covid-19 Crimes, Corruptions and Conflicts of interest is enough proof to consider the WHO a criminal enterprise, beholden to private vested interests. I, therefore, support the call and the bill to defund and EXIT THE WHO”. Hassan’s detailed presentation on why all countries must Exit The WHO will be uploaded to aligned websites in the days ahead, including Shabnam’s and African Sovereignty Coalition.
International law professor Francis Boyle, who drafted the implementing legislation for the convention on biological weapons responded to Mohamed: “Fabulous. I wholeheartedly support this Bill for the Republic of South Africa to withdraw from the World Health Organization. You all fought so hard for your Independence from a Racist Colonial Regime. With all due respect, I submit that South Africans should not want the WHO Racist Colonial Regime reimposing slavery and apartheid upon you.” Professor Francis A. Boyle

Petition: Support The Bill to Withdraw From the WHO
On Saturday 30 September 2023, the WHO Withdrawal Bill was handed to political party (African Christian Democratic Party) member of parliament Steve Swart, civil society leaders, faith-based leaders and the public. The petition to support the bill is below. The support petition will be sent to the South African parliament. It will also be sent to the World Health Organisation before the next World Health Assembly.

Given the growing resistance to the WHO and United Nations power grabs and sanctions, seismic shifts in the way countries want to work with each other directly and cooperatively, and the controversial conduct of WHO DG Tedros in Ethiopia; South Africa is ready to lead in withdrawing and freeing itself to create a better world.
