Mike Pompeo made the claim as he ended his African tour in the Ethiopian capital.

They breed corruption, dependency, they don’t hire the local people, they don’t train and they don’t lead them.

“Countries should be wary of authoritarian regimes with empty promises. They breed corruption, dependency, they don’t hire the local people, they don’t train and they don’t lead them. They run the risk that the prosperity and sovereignty and progress that Africa so needs and desperately wants won’t happen”, he said.

Mike Pompeo offered Africa an alternative to cooperate with his country.

“If there’s one thing you need to know about our president – my boss – you need to know that he likes deals. He wants more, he wants more between the United States and the nations of all Africa,’‘ Pompeo added.

At the China-Africa Summit, Beijing pledged some $60 billion for new financing in Africa. It is not clear how much funds Washington will propose.
