Uganda’s Andrew Mwenda was at TED this year. The video was a gold find as he clearly touches on a few key points on African Aid that we’ve written about here at Project Diaspora. He lays the smack down on what’s wrong with the African Aid model – much to the chagrin of Bono, who was in attendance . Of specific interest is the budget/expenditure structure of a good number of African governments. Uganda, for example spends 110% of it’s annual budget! Why? So that the world bank can pick up the shortfall. We touched on a lot of these issues here and here. Something’s afoot in the African jungle, and that something is knowledge. We need more of this realization for people to wake up.
