The countries that have collected the most development aid are also the ones that are in the worst shape. Despite the billions that have poured in to Africa, the continent remains poor.More James Shikwati quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Africans are taught to be beggars and not to be independent.More James Shikwati quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Because it's unacceptable that the aid worker's chauffeur only speaks his own tribal language, an applicant is needed who also speaks English fluently - and, ideally, one who is also well mannered. So you end up with some African biochemist driving an aid worker around, distributing European food, and forcing local farmers out of their jobs. That's just crazy!More James Shikwati quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
AIDS is big business, maybe Africa's biggest business. There's nothing else that can generate as much aid money as shocking figures on AIDS. AIDS is a political disease here, and we should be very skeptical.More James Shikwati quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
