Britain halts all aid to Uganda over graft claims
2012-11-18
[Daily Nation (Kenya)] Britannia suspended all aid to the Ugandan government on Friday over concerns that funding has been siphoned off into officials' bank accounts.
Goodness they have plenty of uses for it at home...
International development minister Justine Greening said payments worth £11.1 million ($17.6 million dollars, 13.8 million euros) that were due before the end of the financial year had been halted.

"Unless the government of Uganda can show that UK taxpayers' money is going towards helping the poorest people lift themselves out of poverty, this aid will remain frozen," the international development ministry said.

"We will expect repayment and administrative and criminal sanctions."

London provides some 27 million pounds of aid through the government in Kampala every year.

#1  So, Uganda should just set itself up as a 'Green' corporation and apply for DoE money. Problem solved.
