Last week, we mentioned the fact that in the 80s and 90s, quite a few of African leaders were hand-picked from either the World bank or IMF: Eileen Johnson-Sirleaf, Allousaanne Ouatrra and in Nigeria, drivers of economic policy like Chu Okngwu, Kalu Idika Kalu, Okonjo-Iweala. How these economic experts fail to lift Africa is a question that is begging for answers. Here’s why. Americans donate their used clothing to charities, ostensibly to be sold in second-hand stores of for use by the needy but these clothings find their ways into African markets, especially in East Africa with the official endorsement of the US Trade Association known as SMART–Secondary Materials and Recylced Textiles-with the rationale of preventing environmental disasters in America if the clothing end up in American landfills. Obviously, environmental disaster is good for Africa. These and others are issues discussed
