“Training of African Medical Students”–Another Castroite Scam-Swindle

jerry8FId2

As frequently reported here at Babalu, Cuban-trained "doctors" barely qualify as Disorderly Orderlies elsewhere on earth. Now it turns out that --though both parties to the swindle hide the truth with the habitual connivance of the media and their lapdog Cuba "Experts"--the cost of this "medical training" in Cuba's sham medical schools actually EXCEEDS the tuition at John Hopkins.

Somebody's making a killing.

Perhaps one day the New york Times and the Washington Post will rise to the level of investigative reporting here shown by Ghana's Daily Guide:

President John Mahama has sparked a serious controversy on the actual cost being borne by government in training 250 Ghanaian medical students in Cuba in a deal he brokered last year.

According to the president, the cost of training of each of the Ghanaians in Cuba is $5,000 (GH¢10million) instead of the GH¢50,000 per year being quoted by various sources including government documents. ..Contrary to all the financial implications being trumpeted by the Ghanaian government, the Cuban government gives an impression that the deal is actually a gratuity. On its official website, it stated, “Under the agreements, the Cuban government will provide scholarships for all the 250 students who were selected from deprived communities throughout the country and would be ready to come back to serve their communities…”

Entire thing here.

A "scholarship" where Third-World students (for a sham course that probably involves dissecting frogs) end up paying more than if they attended John Hopkins Medical School!...Who but the Castro regime could get away with this in the eyes of "respectable" international opinion?

Unreal
