Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley's Task Force for Africa, a lingering item of controversy in the city's 1987-88 budget, was spared the knife as the City Council finalized a $2.47-billion spending plan. The council failed to override Bradley's veto on a proposal to eliminate the $98,120 task force. Designed to improve trade relations with African nations, the task force has been criticized as a Bradley pet project that would provide little benefit to city taxpayers.

An African trade trip by Mayor Tom Bradley and two aides was paid for from a charitable contribution by a giant electronics firm that says it never intended such a use for the monies, The Times has learned. Sources familiar with the financing of the trip, under scrutiny by city prosecutors, said that most of a $50,000 donation made in 1986 to a Chinatown nonprofit business development group went to pay for the Africa trip and other travels by an aide.
