Kellogg Foundation Suspends Grantmaking in Southern Africa

The Chronicle of Philanthropy reports that the W.K. Kellogg Foundation has suspended its grant making in southern Africa because of apparent financial problems at the Foundation's Pretoria, South Africa office.  That office oversees giving in more than half-a-dozen southern African countries.  According to the Foundation's press release, former U.S. Ambassador to South Africa James A. Joseph will lead a restructuring of the Foundation's programming in that region of the world in the wake of the Foundation's discovery that several hundred thousand dollars may have been diverted illegally.  To prevent any further diversions while the investigation is ongoing, the Foundation has ceased all relevant financial transactions and secured all assets.

What I don't understand now is why is kelllog still with holding concultant's payments for work already done and submitted over a year later and am just keen to know in the interest of fairness and justice, is kellog going to pay with interest on these long outstanding payments?

The attitude of kellog foundation sucks to say the least and the foundation due to their non-sensitivity to other people's needs and lack of concions in settling outstanding payments is probably the reason they are in this mess
