British taxpayers have been sending £2million to Zimbabwe every week.
The country’s £99.7million aid package formed part of the £13.4billion gifted by the UK in Official Development Assistance.
Mugabe, 93, who has led Zimbabwe since independence in 1980, has been accused of election rigging and brutally stifling opposition.
It is understood the Department for International Development does not give money directly to the government of Zimbabwe, instead of working with non-profit organisations.
Meanwhile, Britain boosted the financial handouts to Pakistan from £374million in 2015 to £463million last year.
The country is now the biggest recipient of UK foreign aid, despite developing its own space and nuclear weapons programmes.
The spending scandals are just two highlighted by the Daily Express as part of our Stop The Foreign Aid Madness crusade which demands the Government slashes the ODA budget and diverts cash into services here in the UK.
Bangladesh = £157.5m
Afghanistan = £199.6m
Tanzania = £199.7m
Syria = £201.6m
South Sudan = £205.5m
Sierra Leone = £213.8m
Nigeria = £253.50m
Ethiopia = £334.1m
Pakistan = £351.4m
Ukip deputy leader Margot Parker said: “Figures show the UK sent £13.4billion worth of ODA money in 2016. We are sending £2million a week to Zimbabwe to promote democracy and almost half a billion pounds a year to Pakistan – a state armed with nuclear weapons and its own space programme. This is simply ridiculous – this money would be better spent on our health service and social care provisions.”
The Daily Express crusade has been backed by 75,000 readers and a host of cross-party politicians.
