Sweden: We Might Cut Aid To Uganda

Kenyan TV reports:

The Swedish Government has indicated that it is considering a freeze on aid to Uganda days after the country signed the anti-gay Bill into Law. Sweden’s Finance Minister Anders Borg condemned the move saying it was unfortunate that Uganda passed the law noting it would strain relations between the two countries. Borg is on a regional tour of Africa to assess Swedish funded projects in the continent. He earlier met the Cabinet Secretary of Finance Henry Rotich and the Central Bank Governor Prof. Njuguna Ndung’u. On average Sweden lends Uganda 40 million dollars as aid which is channeled to various sectors of the economy. Borg also reiterated that his Government will scale up trade with Kenya and the rest of Africa moving forward.
