Survey Finds Africans Blame Themselves for Horn of Africa Famine

The results were equally striking in terms of who should take the lead in solving the current famine problems. All of the Kenyan and South African respondents cited the African governments themselves as did 71 percent of the Britons and 83 percent of the Americans. Only the Nigerian respondents felt that developed countries should also play a major role.

Several respondents took a more global, political approach. Said one: “Interesting how NATO has the resources and manpower to help bring someone down in Libya, but not to help lift someone up in Kenya.”
