25-09-2008 14:35Many western individuals and organizations niavely believe that "aid" and IMF and World Bank sanctioned poicies will get Afrika out of poverty. What this article seeks to do is to impart to the reader that far from helping Afrika, western "aid" and IMF and World Bank policies have crippled Afrika's economic development and made Afrika the "scare on the consciousness of the world". The truth of the matter is that Afrika needs proper and just trade with the West, access to its markets, that the West pays the normal price for Afrika's resources, that western multinational companies like the mining ones and petroleum ones end thier gross exploitation of Afrikan resources, and a definite end to so-called aid that has draconian conditions attached to it. May be trendy white liberals like the so-called aid agencies and Bono will take heed and realize that THEY DO NOT SPEAK FOR THE MASSES OF THE AFRIKAN PEOPLE.
