Joyce Banda ‘wanted’
LILONGWE: Malawi has issued an arrest warrant for its former president Joyce Banda over alleged abuse of office and money laundering when she was in office, a police spokesperson said yesterday.
The alleged offences were part of a wider corruption scandal uncovered in 2013, in which senior government officials siphoned millions of dollars from state coffers.
Banda, who was Malawi’s president for two years from 2012, left the country when she lost in elections to incumbent Peter Mutharika in 2014 and has not returned. It is not clear where she is presently. Reuters
