  • Africa: Bill Clinton Tours Africa As Donation Foundation Scandal Bites Hillary

    Former US President Bill Clinton wrapped up a three-day visit in Kenya on Sunday, as part of a nine-day African trip for the family's foundation. It was a pioneering vehicle that was meant to seal the Clinton's family legacy, instead the Clinton Global Initiative has turned into a headache for US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Revelations that she received staggering amounts of foreign donations while Secretary of State, have led to allegations that she traded favors for donations, and mired the beginning of her election campaign. Smelling the danger, Hillary stood down from the foundation's board of directors, but as wife of the charity's founder, the scandal hasn't died down, and appears to have been the reason why Bill Clinton and Chelsea left for Africa in the first place.
