Kenya MPs urge aid halt over graft
News||11 August 2000|update 18|
In mid-July 64 Kenyan MPs signed a statement urging the IMF and World Bank to suspend discussions on new loans to their government after a select committee report into corruption was cut, deleting the names of some politicians and civil servants. "We want to tell the World Bank and the IMF that they have no business dealing with the Moi regime when it cannot accept to investigate and prosecute those named in the report," the MPs said.
The IMF and World Bank ignored these requests, resuming lending to Kenya at the end of the Month.
