A few governments have released (mainly inane) statements of condemnation of the government’s crackdown on the urban protests yesterday. Madonna, of all people, released a statement which might accurately capture donor sentiment:
“I am deeply concerned about the violence today in Malawi, especially the devastating impact on Malawi’s children. Malawi must find a peaceful solution to these problems that allows donors to have confidence that their money will be used efficiently.”
Think of all the poor souls out there not meeting their disbursement targets!
