BANDA IN SECOND BID FOR MALAWI’S PRESIDENCY


Malawi’s former President Joyce Banda, who returned home in April after four years of self-imposed exile, says she intends to contest next year’s election if chosen by the opposition People’s Party.
In 2012, Mrs Banda became Malawi’s first female president and only the second woman to lead a country in Africa.
She was voted out in 2014 after a multi-million dollar corruption scandal saw dozens of people arrested including government officials. She has denied all allegations of corruption.
