The key 'pillars' of world corruption

Sir - Delighted to read, (Sunday Independent, April 17) that Adi Roche will be the first representative of a non-government organisation to speak at the UN General Assembly in New York on April 26.
I am surprised that she is not including in the key "pillars" of her address to the General Assembly one particular "pillar" that has been highlighted in all analysis of aid in the recent past: institutional corruption and mismanagement by recipient governments - and the failure of non-government organisations to confront such governments.
I do not think it is the role of non-government organisations or indeed government aid to make failed political systems and their leaders look respectable.
