Dire DawaFrom our perspective, most of the World Bank funding has ended up in bureaucracy, its the  administration department of the city, that has taken the biggest chunk of the fund.  This’s not only in Dire Dawa, but the entire country. Its the politicians and their cronies that enjoy most of the monies that are funded, and you end up with mediocre unfinished projects.
