Has there been evidence of diversion of western aid in Somalia?

A UN monitoring group report on the WFP’s operations in Somalia issued last year contained damaging allegations. The report said WFP transportation contracts to Somali businessmen constituted the greatest single source of revenue in Somalia and just three contractors received 80% of this business in 2009, worth $200m. “There is no question that irregularities prevailing in the contracting environment and deficiencies in the certification of delivery facilitate opportunities for large-scale diversion,” the report said. WFP, however, disputed the figures, saying its payments to all transport contractors came to just $62m not $200m, and that it had already taken steps to widen its pool of contractors and encourage competition. Nevertheless, WFP said it would no longer work with the three contractors named in the report.
