Could not resist posting this very juicy article. This only confirms my suspicion that all the wars and conflicts that have been ravaging Africa for the past 50 years all point to one thing: commercial interests of Western companies are the main culprit of the problem because if every government forced its businesses to follow the rules of U.N. arms embargo, I doubt civil wars would last more than a month, much less than decades.
Transparency International released today its annual corruption report and guess what? Kenyan Police Force did it again! Big, big up to you Kenyan Police! I’m so proud of you for your lack of hard work, consistent extortion, and plain thievery. I can’t express enough how much proud I’m of you Kenya Police – you have once again proved critics wrong. They said you couldn’t it a record sixth straight year as the world’s finest corrupt police! Your only one year away from tying Lance Armstrong’s 7 Toure De France wins and I completely expect you to do it again next year!
Now don’t disappoint me.
It has not even been a week since I wrote about Frederick Chiluba, the ex Zambian president who stole $46 million from Zambia’s public fund – the Zambian high court yesterday rejected Chiluba’s request to be given immunity due to his poor health; yeah right, asshole. I hope you suffer in jail for the rest of your poor life, dick.
Anyway, now an ex-Ugandan health minister has been charged with stealing nearly $4.3 million from the immunization fund, which was donated by the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization charity. No wonder millions of African children die from diseases like malaria, smallpox, and so on, which can easily be prevented by immunizing children, but thanks to sons of bitches like Mr. Jim Muhwezi and his partners in crime Capt. Mike Mukula and Dr. Alex Kamugisha, millions of African toddlers will continue to parish. What a shame. By the way, why is an ex-army general in charge of the Health Ministry? That beats me.
But here’s the kicker: Mr. Muhwezi was in London last week for, guess what? Medical treatment! Just like Mr. Chiluba went to South African and England for his medical treatment. I feel nauseated right now. I mean, why is a former president going to another country for medical treatment? Couldn’t he get the best medical treatment in his country? And why would an EX health minister go to another country for medical treatment? This is beyond my head.
Perhaps it is time for Africans to flog and execute publicly their corrupt public officials when they’re found guilty of corruptions; otherwise future African leaders will continue to rob and dilapidate their countries until they run it into the toilet. No wonder why developed countries have less corruption and underdeveloped countries have a 100% corruption levels. I believe it is time the West to stop giving Africa handouts unless they place an effective enforcements policy to their handouts which they have never, ever done. This is not too much to ask and it is certainly doable. As I have always believed, Africa’s problems isn’t poverty, diseases, or famines, but rather corruption.
Unless the world (especially the World Bank, the IMF, and the U.N.) makes corruption in Africa’s its one number priority, Africa will always be poor, disease-riddled, war-ravaged, and famine-stricken. What Africa needs is a War on Corruption, not Blair’s good-intentioned War on Poverty or U2’s Bono’s War on Aids. Because at the end of the day, corruption is what is hindering Africa’s progress against poverty, diseases, wars, and famines.
