Stop giving aid

The latest from the kleptocrats is the purchasing of ‘suggestion boxes’ at $760 (almost Shs 2 Million)a piece. This was in the Ministry of Local Government, during the ‘market expansion system’. And this seems to have raised no dust, coming close on the heels of the bicycle theft.

What makes Ugandans riot when Kizza Besigye and Erias Lukwago are blocked from accessing the city, yet they look on indifferently when a permanent Secretary only apologises after squandering billions of shillings?

As Bob Geldorf once argued, let the African starve, …don’t feed him,…only then will he save himself from hunger and famine.

If you doubt the real intention behind aid to Africa, read Dambisa Moyo: Dead Aid and Graham Hancock: Lords of Poverty. Our dear donors please show your love for us by stopping all manner of aid in whatever form, for whatever reason. we are resilient, we will not die.
