Eu may cut aid to Kenya

The EU will not rule out refusing aid to Kenya. I can see their point, but in these situations it is the people who need the aid most who suffer.

This is the dilemma for Kenya's donors. Some interesting points in the article about the stand that Colin Bruce has taken on the elections, accepting Kibaki's win, and how EU donors depend on the World Bank for guidance. The person giving guidance, sympathises with the illegitimate government.

I wonder what hope we have, but then it seems that donor outrage led to Uganda, Nigeria and Ethiopia cooperating when they were subject to these measures.
