South Africa criticises UK for stopping Aid to the country.

(Pretoria) Like a large number of countries around the world, the UK has something of a money problem and like everybody else is cutting back on its spending. One such avenue is Aid to countries which don't require it.  Which is why after 2015, the UK will stop Aid to South Africa..The aid programme, currently worth £19m a year, is focused on reducing the mortality rate among women giving birth and supporting businesses.

However South Africa didn't take kindly to the mother country souring the milk to one of its former children, but then Aid recipients the world over don't like it when the free cash stops. Just ask Hamas.
