I wonder how much money he took with him - money which originated from foreign aid to his country?

This is why I am completely against foreign aid being paid to governments.  It should instead be given to aid agencies from this country, who could help those in need, and where infrastructure is needed they could employ local labour to carry it out, giving the locals paid employment.

Better with selected aid agencies than with dictators though.
