OXFAM, today has put Afghanistan at the forefront of its news report as $5 billion (Dollars) worth of aid from the west has still not been delivered.
Afghansitan, if it needs to progress needs this aid, and the fact that 40% (as quoted by Reuters), returns tot he west for profits and salaries. How does that work?
Waht is happening as there was an agreement made with the Afghan Governemnt that all aid was to go through this way and be channelled to the Agancies that urgently require it.
I am disappointed as if this aid is in the country why has it not been delivered and what is hampering the relief effort?
As infrastructure at the moment is one of the main priorities in Afghanistan, so that once the roads are built then true reconstruction can begin.
Sandy Gall an ex-journalist whose expertise is Afghanistan, why was he not called as an envoy or special representative to assist with this?
It has been recommended that I trace this aid and see if there is a safe passage that can be given top priority for this to go through.
I am hoping that someone will be able to explain all this, as once again who is accountable for this?
