Charges of Corruption and Suffering with Aids Virus,
Deputy Provincial Governor Fails at Attempted Suicide
From the end of March this year, Kong Chuizhu, former Deputy
Governor of Yunnan Province and current Deputy Director
of Yunnan Province People Congress (YPPC),
has never made a public appearance to date.
He has now been replaced by a second Deputy Director of YPPC.
However, the key reason behind Kong Chuizhu not making
a public appearance,
is due to an injury inflicted during a failed attempt at suicide.
In addition, he is now being charged with corruption
and is currently suffering from AIDS.
A news report, said to have been obtained from an insider
of Yunnan Provincial Government,
reported that in the afternoon of one weekend
at the end of March,
Mr Kong Chuizhu used broken glass, attempting suicide
to both of his hands, both sides of his neck
and chest, all beinginjured.
Kong Chuizhu was said to be in severe shortage of blood due
to his injuries when he was sent to hospital later that day.
According to the insider, the reason behind Kong Chuizhu’s
was due to another former Deputy Governor of Yunnan Province,
Shen Peiping, being investigated,
his confession mentioned Kong Chuizhu.
Kong Chuizhu was involved in the corruption issues
of water conservancy construction.
On March 9, Shen Peiping was investigated by the Authorities.
March 28, he was dismissed of his role as Deputy Governor
of Yunnan Province.
Shen Peiping was charged with not only corruption,
but also involvement in Zhou Yongkang’s case,
an Ex-Member of the Politburo Standing Committee
of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
According to open information, Kong Chuizhu is 61 years old
and his official career is only in Yunnan Province.
His first official title is head of an agricultural
he took the position of Deputy Governor of Yunnan Province
for a decade since January of 2003.
He was specifically responsible for agriculture,
water conservancy, forestry, poverty alleviation etc.
Kong Chuizhu’s official resume shows, that he worked
with Shen Peiping many times:
from 1995 to 2000, Kong Chuizhu is the direct boss
of Shen Peiping.
Since January of last year, Kong Chuizhu left
the position and took a new position at YPPC,
and it is Shen Peiping who replaced Kong as Deputy Governor.
Also according to the insider, the second reason for Kong
Chuizhu’s suicide attempt,
is that he’s a carrier of the HIV virus.
Beijing political observer Mr Hua Po says, everyone wants
to live well,
this is more so evident within the thinking
of the corrupt high level officials.
So as a high-ranking official, Kong Chuizhu chose suicide,
and this shows that he has met with big trouble.
This makes him want to die rather than to live, hence dying
would cancel all responsibilities related to him.
Hua Po: “Let’s think it over, he himself is involved in such
large and corrupt scandals,
he would inevitably be punished by the authorities.
He also suffers with AIDS, an incurable disease.
This is due to his promiscuous sexual life.
So suicide is a relief for him."
According to a newspaper report of Southern
from the end of August of 2003 to the beginning
of April of 2014,
112 officials who committed suicide were officially
recognised by the CCP.
Among them, eight are provincial governor level
and 22 are director level of provincial bureaus.
In fact, at the beginning of March of this year,
during the two major conferences (NPC and CPPCC),
as a NPC representative, Kong Chuizhu was in a coma
due to having digested a heavy dose of medicine.
He had received treatment in the hospital
during the two major conferences.
Li Shanjian is an American commentator on China’s issues.
He says, Kong Chuizhu attempted suicide on a number
mainly due to the despair of his situation and his future
political prospects and also his disease.
Li Shanjian: “For Kong Chuizhu, he is very clear
about his political end, signalling no hope.
To punish him is a matter of sooner or later.
His body health is an aggravating aspect too."
Some scholars have summarised the eight ugly performances
of the CCP officials, and this includes:
putting profit first, being obsessed with lustful desire, full servility,
ignorance and incompetence, being ruthless and cruel,
being intentionally mystifying, extravagance and lies.
In 2012, the eldest son Hu Deping of the Ex-Head of CCP
expressed his anger with the current society
on his Sina Weibo account:
“All of our medias are filled with lies!
There are no true words, brag is prevalent,
and 96 percent of officials are corrupt
with mistress in hand.
Such a situation is very dangerous…
we have owed too much to our people already!"
Li Shanjian says, under the CCP’s ruling,
the power and desires of the officials have no restraint
So the degraded morality and prevailing corruption
is an inevitable consequence.
In fact, they are also the victims of such a regime.
Li Shanjian: “Under the current CCP regime,
to find an official free from corruption is almost impossible.
Because such a regime phases out good officials."
Li Shanjian expresses, since the CCP took to power,
the CCP have uninterruptedly destroyed
the traditional morality of China,
which leads the morality of Chinese people
to an out-of-control end.
Therefore, all Chinese people including the CCP’s officials,
should all make retrospection:
what sort of end will such a society lead us to?
Hu Deping also wrote on his Weibo: “Advise to some officials,
do not be obsessed with power".
He said, Libyan Madman “Gaddafi, died of gun wounds,
he had blood all over his face,
it is still clearly seen…
Once the people no longer support us, we will meet
with our doomsday".
