A total of 124 ambassadors and heads of international organisations based in Geneva have criticised some Swiss newspapers for describing Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala as a “66-year-old Nigerian grandmother”.
At least three Swiss newspapers — Luzerner Zeitung, Aargauer Zeitung and St. Galler Tagblatt — primarily described Okonjo-Iweala as a grandmother following her announcement as the director-general of the World Trade Organisation.
“This Grandmother will become the new boss of WTO,” the headline of a report by Luzerner Zeitung read.
The article was published in the online and print version of the newspaper.
In a tweet on Friday, Elisabeth Tichy-Fisslberger, premanent representative of Austria to the United Nations and other international organizations in Geneva, said ambassadors and heads of international organizations sent a letter to the editors of the newspapers over the article.
