Some things won't change soon

Aid Agencies are estimating 300,000 people to be in camps while a similar number are displaced but not in camps reports the UN News agency, IRIN. Those out of camps have returned to their ancestral lands where relatives are housing them.
Ladies in Action have strong bonds within certain communities and are able to get a relatively accurate picture of the needy. Yesterday, they returned to Sinyolo where Tobias, the outreach officer identified 500 displaced and elderly ladies whom they distributed maize meal, soap, cooking fat, salt and matches to.

What I would really like to know is exactly how much the leaders are actually contributing out of their own pockets to assisting the people that voted for them. One thing is for sure, they are certainly splashing it out on fancy cars to protect them from poverty.
