Africa Africa, when will you start to have priorities? You have money for political campaigns, money for elections, money for wars, money for military coups... but when it comes to your people, you start crying... you shout for international funding. You forget that the money comes after Subi and Dewo, Iverson, Liu Cheng, Albulmarik, Lee, Stephanie et al, have been squeezed to the last coin...
Please Africa use your brain to think not your spinal cord!
"Avoiding this will depend on the willingness of donors to make new commitments. Although this is not easy in today's financial environment, donor countries cannot back away from supporting the promise of universal access to treatment made five years ago."
Africa, the dying are your people. Their well-being is your responsibility. The donors have other important things to do, mama wewe bado umekaa unawategemea tu??!!
Let me ask you my mama, how much of your budget from your own resources goes to HIV/AIDS? Hakuna.
...but how much do you spend for corruption, wars, unnecessary trips of your leaders, military coups? A lot.
One more before I let you go, how much of the funded money goes into the pockets of your corrupt, irresponsible leaders and health care authorities?
How much of the funded monies is used for medications? Very little... but how much is used for the Shangingis? A lot.
Ah Africa!! I have never heard an ARV by the name of Land Cruiser.
Sasa unalia nini Africa? Afrika umejilaani mwenyewe, hujalaaniwa na mtu wala Mungu.
Africa achana na ujinga wa utegemezi, una kila kitu umekikalia tu unalilia donors.
Amka! Ingawa najua kamwe hautaamka. Unaniboa Afrika.
