IT was all going so well for Tanaiste Eamon Gilmore during his recent visit to Uganda.

He was lavished with praise for supplying 32m in aid by the Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.

He got a reassurance during an hour-long meeting that "thieves" in the Ugandan government who looked for bribes from international investors would be dealt with severely.

But just three months after those diplomatic pleasantries, Mr Gilmore and his officials are scrambling to find out what happened to 4m of Irish aid money that ended up in the bank account operated by officials from the office of the Ugandan Prime Minister Patrick Amama Mbabazi

Hahahahaha! Welcome to Uganda the land of thieves!
