Ministers have ended funding for an all-female pop group dubbed Ethiopia’s Spice Girls following a furious backlash from Conservative MPs.
Yegna, a five-strong pop group, was promised £5.2million of taxpayer’s money to develop a “branded media platform”.
Priti Patel, the International Development Secretary, has now moved to end the funding amid concerns that it is not value for money.
What worries though is that there is an aid spending system which thought that this was a valid use of money. So, what other horrors lurk in that system?
