From the Daily Mail comes the news: Britain and Ireland suspend aid to Uganda after £10m of funding ends up in Prime Minister’s account.
And if that has you shaking your head, check out this information about your own tax dollars at work:
Uganda is a regular recipient of American foreign aid. USAID, the State Department subdivision that administers foreign aid, reports that Uganda received $431.2 million in aid in 2008; $416.9 million in 2009; and an estimated $456.8 million in 2010. Requested disbursements for 2011 total $480.3 million.
How much of that do you figure got skimmed?
