Question asked by me to Mr. Bill Gates at ABC’s t.v. program ‘Q and A’

I had the opportunity to ask Mr. Gates a question at Australia’s famous program Q & A. Amongst my submitted questions, ABC asked me to ask this question in particular. My question was on aid & alleviating poverty critique. I wanted the great philanthropist’s foundations view on this side of aid critique and quoted the author Dambisa Moyo from her book ‘Dead Aid’, who have been known for her controversial theories; my question perhaps was taken up a little personally.

 

 

The question also came up with a string of debate followed by a response from Dambisa Moyo herself, who quickly took up the issue and promoted it. The links below will illustrate the debate:
