The plunder of foreign aid

“A little more than forty years ago, an observation was made that foreign aid was aid from the poor people of the rich countries to the rich people of the poor countries. The reported plunder of foreign aid in the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) could not have confirmed the correctness of that observation more graphically. The poor tax payers of rich Britain, Ireland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway made massive donations to the super-rich civil servants of poor Uganda.”

From ‘Uganda: Genesis, Anatomy of Our Corruption’ By Joseph Bossa in The Independant on December 16,  2012. Joseph Bossa is the Vice President of the opposition Uganda Peoples Congress party. The full article is available from here.
