... This script sounds very familiar, Western donors fund projects through governments in Africa, African "leaders" embezzle the funds, furious development partners huff and puff, demand transparency and suspend aid.

Frustrated at the governments lethargy in dealing with state officials who gobbled up funds meant for free primary education, That's why Aid is bad, very bad for Africa!

Turai is alleged to denying access to the ailing president thus prolonging an unhealthy state of uncertainty...Her alleged "power grab" is a ticking time bomb...
