IT SEEMS THAT WHILE THE U.S. TAXPAYERS AND CONGRESS SLEEP, WE HAVE TAKEN ON OBAMA’S HOME COUNTRY OF KENYA AS A NEW STATE; AT LEAST WITH OUR MONEY. THE $480 MILLION MENTIONED BELOW IS MERELY HALF OF WHAT WE GIVE THEM. PERHAPS OBAMA WILL GO HOME WHEN HE IS THROUGH DESTROYING US!
Barack Obama administration spending and projects in Kenya have become so voluminous that the U.S. Agency for International Development must hire more contractors to oversee endeavors other providers already carry out across the African nation.
USAID in its own words admits that the “overall USAID/Kenya program has increased rapidly and exponentially, outstripping workforce resources available to effectively perform assessments and rigorous analyses … track results … manage recordkeeping, and other project development and program office functions.”
USAID views with urgency its selection of a contractor, describing the procurement as a “high-priority requirement with high visibility” at the U.S. Mission.
The $480 million program at USAID/Kenya encompasses numerous assistance projects in general areas such as health, population and HIV/AIDS; basic education; youth; governing justly and democratically; and economic growth, environment and natural resources management.
The $480 million is specific to U.S. Department of State and USAID initiatives only. The amount comprises over half the U.S. government’s annual foreign-assistance budget for Kenya, the largest recipient of such aid in Sub-Saharan Africa.
