Our president has just announced that he is sending over $7b to South Africa for infrastructure.

As an American, I would like to know what South Africans think of this and what they think this money will be used for in actuality?

This money is actually aimed at several African countries and not just S. Africa.

But what I'd like to know is what are Africa's reasons for not being able to expand their infrastructure with their own money?

I hope Obama took this into account before coming up with this $7 billion idea.
