Ethiopian Opposition Official Criticizes Donor Report on `Manipulated’ Aid – Bloomberg

Ethiopia’s opposition Oromo People’s Congress criticized a report by a donor group into allegations that the government manipulated foreign aid for political gain ahead of general elections in May.The Development Assistance Group, an Addis Ababa-based body comprising 26 agencies that give assistance to Ethiopia, examined four programs that receive about $1.5 billion a year from donors. Its report found that two of the four programs “face important challenges” and concluded that while all four have accountability systems that provide checks on “distortion for political gain,” they should be strengthened further.
