Governments in rich countries that promised to help Africa fight poverty and disease should come good on their offers of cash, rock star and activist Bono said. (…) At a meeting in 2005, the G8 group of industrialized nations agreed to cancel the debts of 18 low-income countries and pledged to double African aid to about $47 billion by 2010.
“Two years on, it’s time to take the temperature,” Bono said. “If those promises are not kept … it will make a generation of cynics. I don’t believe that’s going to happen, I am optimistic we’re going to get through this.” (Yahoo)
