Afrika må forandre seg selv. Men europeiske ledere må vise sterkere moralsk ryggrad, og gripe tak i korrupsjon, hemmelig eierskap og anonyme kontrakter, sa Mo Ibrahim i en tale nylig.

Mo Ibrahim: - Europeiske ledere må vise moralsk ryggrad

Se Fellesrådets nye Angolafilm!

Fellesrådet har laget film! Statoil betaler hvert år like mye skatt til Angola som det totale norske bistandsbudsjettet. Men hvor blir det av pengene?

In fact, the pleasantries would carry on even after they had said goodbye and are walking in opposite directions, they would talk to each other until their voices faded. This is the beauty that we are losing and will most certainly lose, probably in our life times.
