A year ago, the Taoiseach redirected €10m away from the Museveni government because he said he was concerned about “corruption issues.”
The British government recently reduced its budget grant to Uganda by £10m - while the international community has voiced serious concern at “developments in Uganda.”
Surely by now the Irish Government must be convinced that dealing with a government which is not only hugely corrupt but heavily involved in the rape and plunder of the Congo is totally unacceptable. There are other ways of getting aid to the poorest people of Uganda. What it needs is some innovation and political will.
With so many millions in need it is appalling that corrupt individuals have access to Irish taxpayers’ money.
