Why is AIG in an African slum?

Watching a news program on television this evening in the UK brought a wonderfully iconic image which reflects the absurdity of our culture.

Emblazoned across the shirt are the letters AIG who, for the benefit of those who do not follow soccer and specifically Man U, are the current (but soon to be abandoned) sponsors of the team and its merchandise.
