While the Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa aims at giving a hospitable setting for African Heads of State and Government, leaders of business and Civil Society, leading scholars and representatives of Africa, and Global partners, to examine and debate central issues and challenges facing African peace and Security.

Tana High-Level Forum on Security in Africa Chairperson Olusegun Obasanjo who is Nigeria’s ex President ha confirmed of Banda’s appointed.

Since leaving office having lost to Peter Mutharika in a disputed poll in 2014, Banda who has spared her time outside Malawi has fallen to several to notch  recognition on the global scene.

Earlier this year, she was listed among 12 most powerful female politicians in Africa by the influential ‘African Leadership’ magazine.

This was before she was awarded with the 2015 ‘Women of Distinction Global Leadership Award in Politics’ by Celebrating Women International (CWI) at a ceremony that took place  in the Bahamas.

Banda who has indicated she is afraid of being persecuted in Malawi over her feared role in the public looting of resources, a scandal that took place when he was the President of Malawi was also appointed as one of the Board Directors of Micronutrient Initiative (MI), a Canadian organization working to eliminate malnutrition last year.
