Cameron describes Nigeria, Afghanistan “fantastically corrupt” countries


The British Prime Minister, David Cameron, was caught on camera telling Queen Elizabeth that leaders of some “fantastically corrupt” countries would attend his anti-corruption summit.

Cameron spoke on Tuesday ahead of an international anti-corruption summit he is hosting on Thursday.

“We had a very successful cabinet meeting this morning, talking about our anti-corruption summit,” Cameron told the queen.

“We have got the Nigerians – actually we have got some leaders of some fantastically corrupt countries coming to Britain.

“Nigeria and Afghanistan – possibly two of the most corrupt countries in the world.”

The queen did not respond to Cameron’s remark, but the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, reacted, saying, “But this particular president is actually not corrupt.”

Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani are due to attend the summit.
