Obama Pushes $50 Million More for Kenya, but Officials Admit New Program Could Just Create More Corruption

Photo Credit: WNDStrengthening Kenya’s county governments, at cost to U.S. taxpayers of millions of dollars, could spark the redistribution of political power across the African republic, whose national government is viewed as one of the most notoriously corrupt in the world.

Efforts to bring about such decentralization, however, may inadvertently create 47 equally corrupt county systems, the Obama administration has acknowledged.

Obama, through the U.S. Agency for International Development, nonetheless intends to dole out upwards of $50 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to help the Kenyans get it right, according to contracting documents that WND discovered via routine database research.

One potential obstacle to accomplishing the task is the relatively recent discovery of significant oil resources in Kenya, USAID says.

Corruption, therefore, could magnify due to the lack of transparency between the government and the “land and extractive industries.”

    May be Obama is padding his future nest! (With our money, of course)

    Maybe, hopefully this is to build the Obama’s future permanent home. In the very near future.

    • Obama should be indicted, tried, and charged with High Treason and then if not hung, deported and exiled for life, with all assets frozen and returned to the US treasury on behalf of American Taxpayers.

        You have it right !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In my opinion Obama is just trying to get more money. He did
    not make the money he has from those few books he was supposed to have written. If he sends it to Kenya
    his relatives will keep an eye on it until he returns home.

  • God, I have to say your piece is highly subjective. The US did not disintegrate into corrupt units when it went the way of federal states… There is a new government in place in Kenya and to slam it as the most corrupt governments even before it has fully occupied governance is to show your hand of prejudice and bias. I normally agree with you on many issues, but on this one, I am faced by blatant bigotry. The comments that your article elicits are just like the facebook commentaries made by every tom, dick and harry who can access a cyber cafe. Try some objective observations and commentaries….

  • STOP THIS ILLEGAL ALIEN FROM GIVING AWAY ANY MORE OF OUR MONEY.

  • About a year ago he shipped our gold to Brazil so our reserve is short on gold and he refuses to let there be an audit.. He has also been building hotels in Kenya.. Who will run them.

    So, Obama has stopped feeding the troops in Afghanistan fresh food due to the sequester, but he is planning on sending $50 million to Kenya. I do NOT approve of this! We cannot afford it and I do not want my grandchildren paying for it! Congress needs to wake up and START working for the American people! All handouts to other nations need to stop. the United States needs to get its house in order and its financial books in order before we can “help” anyone else and that includes illegal aliens. American tax dollars need to be spent on America first!
