Underpants Gnomes in Rwanda

One of DFID's many genuinely excellent initiatives is requiring a detailed business case for all of its new programmes, so that there is a carefully thought through theory of change before any money is spent on implementing something new.

However a friend-known-to-be-witty suggests by email that DFID's theory of change for suspending aid to Rwanda seems to be pure underpants gnomes:

1. Aid to Rwandan domestic programmes is stopped
2. Rwanda stops alleged support for M23
3. ??????
4. Peace in Eastern Congo, and free ponies for everyone!!!!

Any better ideas?

It seems strange to suggest that there was no case for the decision. Certainly it had pros and cons. Isn't the intended outcome simply "UK govt reduces likelihood its money is funding atrocities?"

Maybe. That wasn't the reason given in the official statement. http://www.dfid.gov.uk/News/Latest-news/2012/UK-aid-to-Rwanda-and-DRC/
