Oh No !

Someone stands up and offers $10,000 to Mkapa to buy nets…then she calls for other people to give money…someone shouts out $50,000…then others are standing up and offering pledges, then the audience is roaring and clapping….and we are all having a wonderful time…

Four months down the line, after the Government of Tanzania has put serious effort into preparing for a campaign to distribute free nets to children using the USD 1 million which was allegedly raised, the Global Fund who is managing the funds has only received USD 200,000!

This means that 80% of the pledges are not forthcoming. It is therefore safe to say that again the economic elite has not put their money where their mouth is.
