Joyce Banda kills another landmark outside Malawi

299

Her success story rages on and now Malawi’s  ex President, Joyce Banda has sealed a ninth world recognition by being listed among 12 most powerful female politicians in Africa by the influential ‘African Leadership’ magazine.

In just three years now, Banda has received nine International Awards.

The magazine states that during her regime, Banda was focused on national unity as well as being  involved in a series of grassroots initiatives, including those aimed at aiding orphans, providing development opportunities for women, combating hunger, and much more.

Joyce Banda .

Banda: Gets a landmark again.

“During her term, she sold a US$15 million presidential jet, reduced her salary by 30 percent and dismissed the entire cabinet due to corruption allegations. These austerity measures significantly reduced government expenditure. Western nations and International Monetary Fund lifted monetary sanctions on the Southern Africa nation during her term in power,” reports the African Leadership magazine.

 

 

Among other notable recognitions, Banda was named as the ‘Most Inspirational Woman in Politics’ by CNN. She also received the ‘Legacy Award’from the International Women’s Forum; the African Union (AU) ‘Living Legends’ Award; and the ‘Women of Distinction’ Award from Celebrating Women International of The Bahamas.

The Magazine also recognized Sierra Leone President Johnson Sirleaf, Ngozi Iweala Okonji who served two terms as Minister of Finance in Nigeria, from 2003 until May, 2015; Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, Chairperson African Union Commission; Lindiwe Mazibuko, former Parliamentary Leader for the Democratic Alliance, South Africa; Speciosa Wandira-Kazibwe, United Nations Special Envoy for HIV/AIDS in Africa and Fatou Bensouda (Gambia), Chief Prosecutor for the International Criminal Court since June 2012.

Thuli Madonsela, Public Protector, South Africa; Joice Mujuru, former Vice President of Zimbabwe; Samia Suluhu Hassan, Vice-President of Tanzania; Martha Karua, politician and one of the first Kenyan female legislators; and Hanna Tetteh, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ghana have also been recgnized.

She left Malawi after she lost the elections in 2014 to Peter Mutharika and overtime maintained that the Mutharika regime intends to arrest her and politically prosecute her over her feared involvement in the looting of funds within government structures during her reign.

Her homecoming has been heavily rumored by now its been three years since she has been outside Malawi where she continues to attain recognitions.

  2. Malawi would be a far better place had she won the last election as donors wanted to work with her,
    It is Joyce Banda who found out about correptiob and starting dismissing government workers.
    Now we have the same DPP government where the former president died with 92 billion kwacha, if that was not cashgate money.
    Yet the financial audit found that 577 billion kwacha was looted during the time of the same president, yet the DPP wob the election. Look now the mess Malawi is in.

    Hoping she returns in 2019 and is re-elect and continues her strong stand on corruption,

    Congratulations madam

  9. She is a woman of substance.She demonstrated all this even before ascending into the presidency.No wonder the late Bingu chose her of all the people in Malawi .The sin she commited was to let us Malawians know that a ruling party is financed by state coffers unlike all along we have been stupified to believe.Apart from using govt coffers to sponsor her party which was in command ,is there any other serious offence you can level against her? I would love those in charge of govt affairs would bring her to book.The silence on the part of govt on this issue is a clear testimony that cashgate started long before she became head of state.They know where she is,why not bringing her to face the law? The more you talk evil of her the more foreigners are recognising her achievements.Shame on you bootlickers who can not feel a pity to demonise her all the time.

  10. So she is number what? by the church. Hear this woman she top position for satanic in africa and no 2 whole world and she is qeenmother in malawi
