    WRM, related article from Yale Center for the Study of Globalization (Elites loot Africa) highlights how $32 billion in public funds went missing from Angola through 2007 to 2010. Such corruption takes a staggering toll on average Africans as implied in your comments about children of Nigerian Delta.

    Public plundering indicative of complicity…

    I’m shocked, shocked to find that scamming is going on in Nigeria!

    In 1994 the African conference of Catholic bishops held a meeting in Rome (“Because if we held it in Africa nobody would notice.”). At one of the post-event presentations in Pontificia Urbanitas Urbaniana one of the presenters, a Kenyan bishop, announced that 95 years of Catholic evangelization were an unmitigated failure. Two things demonstrated this beyond doubt: 1. The Hutu and Tutsi tribes in Rawanda, both among the earliest and most faithful converts, were even then busily killing each other. 2. Those among Africa’s presidents who counted themselves Catholic were just as big a bunch of thieves as any other. To which a shocked Italian prelate replied, “Not so! There are lots of Baptisms, Confirmations and Communions and people go to Confession!”
