The EU being generous with our money!

Addis Ababa — The European Union has announced $92.2 million new donation to the Africa Union Somalia peacekeeping mission (Amisom).

The peacekeepers have made impressive gains against radical Islamists al-Shabaab in the past few months.

EU Commissioner for Development Andris Piebalgs said the donation was aimed at helping keep the peacekeeping force in place and providing them with the means to do their job more easily.

"There can be no development without security," Mr Piebalgs told reporters in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

  1. Isn't it great how they so casually decide where our money will go? They should fund it from their own bonuses.
