BONO IS DETERMINED TO HELP AFRICAN NATIONS CREATE JOBS

It’s been an uphill battle for Bono and his wife Ali Hewson’s ethical clothing line Edun. Since 2005 the socially conscious couple have tried to establish clothing factories in Africa and train workers. They hope to guide African nations raise the cotton and manufacture the finished product. Establishing factories in Africa hasn’t been easy and the clothing line lost 7.8 million last year. (Better than 2011 when they lost 8.5 million.) Maybe there aren’t enough socially conscious consumers. Big names like Louis Vuitton (see ad above) and Diesel have lent their support to the struggling company. But Bono is not giving up – he’s still determined to industrialize Africa and create jobs.

    Africa doesnʻt need to become Industrialized and it doesnʻt need the help of Irish Tax Evader and fake humanitarian Bono.

    It needs the Governments to stop being corrupt and open to cash from large corporations and the bullying and criminal activity of the World Bank.

    Hey Bono, you dumb ass. Come help US get jobs.

    I wish he’d just disappear. He thinks he some great world leader. Dude just sang some songs – A LONG TIME AGO.

    The government is run by american corporations. They are not interested in africans in making a wage. They are only interested in killing them with bill gates foundation of vaccination. Contributing to the oppression of promoting blood diamonds so independent nations can’t sell their own resources. Keeping land away to the rightful owners. Killing the natives for oil.

    Was bono going to pay them 5 cents an hour while overcharging consumers 200.00 for a shirt?

    Is that Bono’s first wife, or the woman he was cheating with while married?

    How many people are willing to put their money on the line for something they truly believe in? That’s a lot of money for anyone and they should be commended for trying to help people become self sustaining. Shame on all you haters!

    @Mismash – Im so sorry for ur missing brain. If u believe this Marxist Libtard is for real, then shoot urself. Have u any idea where all this charities for Africa money go, charities initiated by Bono and Geldoff and other idiots like them? Well, let me tell u: drugs and weapons for African terrorists. West has been pumping charities into this continent for ages, yet Africans still are as they are. So sit down and learn some real facts and history instead of shitty propaganda. Go to bed now!

    Ha the BLACK African dictators are rubbing their hands as these fools arrive with buckets of money for them to steal. They have already stashed their billions in Swiss banks and French property and have found plenty of white trash women who will service them for $$$$. Worry about your own country and take care of it first.
