The tragedy is that the africans are the one suffering most from hunger and misery. And this is done by design, so we can plunder their natural wealth and slow down their progress.
World Vision scandal puts spotlight on efforts to stamp out aid corruption
With a $1 million alleged fraud case in Liberia, World Vision has become the latest aid agency to be embroiled in a corruption scandal. The Christian organisation has rushed to implement new systems to prevent such abuse in the future, but analysts say fear of negative publicity, lack of external monitoring and a degree of complacency are hampering efforts to stamp out corruption in the aid world.
The Liberian case involves three former World Vision officials who are accused of stealing food and construction materials meant to help people recover from the country's 14-year-long civil war. They allegedly masterminded a scam in which food aid was sold for profit in local markets.

"Some 1.6 billion hectares could be added to the current 1.4 billion hectares of crop land [in the world], and over half of the additionally available land is found in Africa and Latin America," concludes the report, compiled by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

Africa was a battleground between the West, Russia and China. Everyone wanted a piece of the pie ... it wasn't just the West. Heck, the Cubans were in Angola for a long while, trying to get their hands on the oil and diamonds.
Nowadays, China is still pouring in huge amounts of cash and they are succeeding ... just like they have bought the USA.
Read the book "Economic Hitman" and you will understand.
