Neopatrimonialism and foreign aid in Africa : the cases of Kenya and Zimbabwe
Corruption in Africa has become more than a mere "cost of doing business" and is an impediment to the development of the state. Neopatrimonialism is the evolution of corruption in Africa, where the ruling elites have shaped the government and its institutions to become a vehicle for corruption. West em governments in an attempt to aid developmentally stalled states, disburse foreign aid to African neopatrimonial states. Through a thorough case study of Kenya and Zimbabwe, it is shown that foreign aid helps rather than reforms the neopatrimonial system.
