Kenya Urges Africa to Give Up Aid

2 12.06.2015 Инфо

Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta has urged fellow African leaders to stop receiving foreign aid, saying it is not an acceptable basis for prosperity. In a tweet ahead of this weekend's African Union summit in South Africa, he said, "Dependency on giving that only appears to be charitable must end." The BBC's Robert Kiptoo in Kenya says it is not a government policy but a rallying cry for African leaders. Aid is believed to account for 5-6% of Kenya's total income.
