Abstract

Poverty is an enemy of man, it humiliates and dehumanises its victim. The paper examines poverty alleviation pol icies and programmes of government and came to the conclusion that these policies fa iled to al leviate, instead elevated poverty in the country. The reasons for these include corruption in government and neglect of the target group - the poor, who were never considered during the formulation of these po licies. The paper suggests that government should intensify the war against corruption and carry along the target group - the poor, in formulation of its programmes by making ' pro-poor' policies its focus as a basis for poverty alleviation.
