    Idealists leaving university and hoping to make a difference in a developing country may find the experience - and pay - is not as rewarding as they think, warns Peter Griffiths

    That's how they make money, these bastards come to Africa with minimum qualification and yet they get paid more than they deserve. It's our problem, we should make sure that no stupid Idiots come to work in our countries without proper qualifications if we need one.

    It doesn't make sense for the amount of money they get paid when in actual fact the majority of them use local staff for their works and pay them peanuts.
